In brief: Heat and gravity

You are in a hot geographic locale that you likely are unused to.
Heat causes vaso-dilation widening of circulatory vessels, that with gravity tends to pool fluids in the lower extremities. If it does not abate after a reasonable time to accommodate, seek attention. Good luck!

You need to keep up your fluids and elevate your feet when possible , compression socks will also be of help.
