lightweight clothes for traveling to Nicaragua
I’m looking for recommendations on lightweight long-sleeve shirts and dresses for traveling when it is hot enough that you would prefer to be in a tank top, but want sun protection.

Ideally, they are easy to wash and stain resistant. If you have found brands you love that fit the bill, I would love to hear them! Thank you.

I love materials made from Tencel or Lycocell. Which is a type of material that cools, is soft and lightweight.

Sometimes big cheap brands have them too.

If you want something that will also protect you from bugs, check out, Exofficio.

They have super lightweight pullovers and hoodies. The insect repellent lasts for 70 washings.

Also check out Columbia. They make some great lightweight, sun protective clothing.
