In brief: Yes.

Peripheral vasodilation (relaxation of blood vessels in your extremities) is a normal response to heat exposure as in the sauna or hot tub or arizona.
Your heart has to pump faster to circulate the blood around the extra tubing. Hr should return to normal after excess heat is dissipated.
