An overenthusiastic friend of mine had already run splashing into the water, only to stumble back a few minutes later groaning about intense burning sensations. She had taken off before hearing our tour guide’s warning to slowly submerge ourselves in the water so that we could get acclimated to it gradually and test our skin’s response. After her recklessness, the rest of us took our time. I gingerly took my first step into the salty aquamarine waters. My feet felt fine, and to my relief so did the rest of my body as I slowly walked deeper into the water.
