As your body changes to the different climates, it is important to stay hydrated. Prevent sunburns and sun poisoning by limiting exposure and use sunscreen with adequate protection against both UVA and UVB rays. The summer months bring an increased risk from mosquito-borne and tick-borne illnesses.
Depending on the destination, risks may come from Zika, Dengue, and Tick-Borne Encephalitis to name a few. To reduce this risk, the traveler can use a repellent containing DEET or a similar chemical deterrent. In addition, make sure vaccinations are up-to-date and have an understanding of medical issues and environmental concerns regarding the country to be visited.

This is so true. Nothing can ruin a vacation faster than a bad sunburn coupled with bug bites. Ugh!
