Going for a walk through the nature reserve, it’s worth to take sunscreen and insect repellent with you. You can get burnt not only while relaxing on the beach, but also while walking around the city; annoying insects can ruin even the most interesting tour.
For souvenirs it’s better to go to the small street markets that exist in all towns. Lots of interesting trade stands and souvenir shops are located close to major beaches; prices there are much more attractive than in large shopping centers.
You have to have a sufficient amount of cash, when going to the market, so it’s better to stock up notes of small face value. It is necessary to bargain in markets and private retail stores, as it certainly will reduce the price of an item and would be taken as an honor to local traditions. In large shopping centers, restaurants and petrol stations credit cards of all known international standards are accepted.
One of the main values for locals is their native language. They don’t take foreign languages seriously. Even if they are fluent in other languages, locals speak them as rare as hen’s teeth. Vacationers are advised to bring along the dictionary and learn several phrases in the local language.
