mosquito spray / suncream / jacketsHi
Does anyone know if it's easy to find mosquito spray and suncream in places outside Colombo. LP says it's hard to find these products, and we're wondering how much to bring for a family of four (travelling north, south, east and centre for 24 days).
Are there any places where there are no mosquitoes, or do we need the repellent everywhere?!
Also, is a thin fleece jacket, or thin jumper enough for the cooler climate of the hilly part of the country?

2I brought it all with me but suncream is everywhere, I noticed it in supermarkets and shop windows. Not sure about mozzie spray but I wasn't looking out for it.
A fleece is fine but you also need a lightweight waterproof, it's wet in the hill country. If you are in Nuwara Eliya you can get great bargains on branded jackets and fleeces.

3Sunscreen is available at most of cargils and keels supermarket chains......you will see them in almost all major towns but it will be expensive.......bring your own.......people who live in the tropics actualy are immune to sun burn....so i never use them.......mozzie repelent is available in most pharmacies.....try the ones at cargills /keels in colombo,galle ,kandy,etc.
