Baby supplies are available in major cities, but dry up quickly in the countryside. You’ll find cots in most midrange and top-end hotels, but not elsewhere. There are no safety seats in rented cars or taxis, but some restaurants can find a high chair. Pack high-factor sunscreen from home as it’s not widely available; antibacterial hand gel is also a great idea.
