    Anyone else experience this?

    When I come to Aruba, I get swollen feet. This has happened to my sister-in-law, friends and some others I speak with. I am wondering if this happens because of the mosquitoes nipping at the ankles or something else. I do not have this problem at home. I am curious if this is happens to others who visit

    I think it's Dehydration. Happened to me everytime except this last trip, lots of water & gatorade, no salt or soda and I didn't swell up once in 9 weeks!

    My wife's feet swell up on the flights,so now she takes socks with her for the flights. Seems to help some.



    Third time back this year in 70 days.

    Fortunately, in my many trips...fingers crossed when I can go again...it has not happened to me; nor my companions. I am sure, however, as you have already seen, you will get many possible reasons and remedies.

    Best wishes.

    My culprit is sodium, I watch what I eat and avoid carbonated beverages.

    NOPE, NEVER!
    And stay for 2 weeks. Make my own coffee every morning. Drink lots of beer on the beach. Usually have Catch of the Day out for dinner. Now I don't spend too much time out in the sun. Do take a few ocean swims.
    Now after 25 or so trips guess my body is use to it.

    You Guys have to check with your Doctor. Swollen feet - is a sign of the retaining water... and this can happen, if patient has a High Blood presure, and and abnormal Kidneys function... some times-simple prolonged exposure to sun- heat can cause it. My father used to have it, whenever we went to the places with similiar climate.

    Yes, however, last year was the first time it did not happen and I was so happy. I stayed away from salt which I rarely use at home but use it there for some weird reason. I used to think it was the heat but now think it was the salt. Hopefully I can have the same luck this year.

    This happens to my husband every time we are in Aruba (or Vegas). His dr. thinks it is because of the salty food he might be eating. I think the long trip down to Aruba and then the heat play a part also. It doesn't happen at home!!

    Gatorade is loaded up with salts. Just an observation.
