- Sun protection cream (SPF 45 or higher recommended).
- Bug spray with 30% DEET in it–which you need, although it doesn’t always work very well. The issue with the Cusco outdoors is that most of the bugs are not mosquitoes. They are small pesky practically invisible flies that leave weird bites that look like you pricked your finger and then develop into itchy red bumps. So having some anti-itch ointment could be helpful.
