What shall I pack to visit the Caribbean?
Pack Sunscreen: We recommend keeping your sunscreen (SPF 40+ preferred) on hand for the sometimes-unforgiving tropical sun. Find a suitable one for you and your travel partner in advance. If you are travelling with little ones, ensure to get a children’s’ sunscreen for their sensitive skin and one that is waterproof, so you won’t have to stop the fun to reapply.
Pack Swimwear and Swim-Gear: The magical water of the Caribbean will pull you in as soon as you arrive. You will soon be surrounded by the warm, salty Caribbean Sea and though the water isn’t harmful, packing goggles for swimming is necessary if you have sensitive eyes. Toys are also welcome for the children
Pack Hats and sunglasses: Protection is key…to enjoying your tropical getaway! Protecting your skin and eyes from the sun is imperative for a beach day, an excursion or a day of shopping.
Pack Prescription Medication: Don’t let health problems stand in the way of a fun vacation. We always recommend that you consult your doctor to find out if you’re clear to travel. Be sure to pack your doctor’s emergency contact information as well as any prescription medication you or anyone in your group may need.
Pack Comfortable shoes: We recommend you take comfortable shoes and a pair of tennis with you to enjoy the Archeological sites excursions, the Atv´s & Ziplining activities, …etc.
Pack Light Clothing: The tropical climate can be a bit unforgiving during the summer months, but it is a pleasurable experience. To beat the heat, we recommend packing very light breathable clothing to wear. No sweaters required. So, here’s your chance to wear your breezy sundresses and colorful beach wraps.
Pack Evening Wear: Our famous Fifth Avenue features charming & top-class specialty restaurants, nightclubs and bars that you will want to dress up for. Pack some nice evening wear for the night you choose to dine & dance in style.
Pack Some Cash: We recommend keeping a modest amount of cash with you for picking up that unique trinket, souvenir or simply for tipping. The use of credit cards is very common, but you never know. Finding an ATM may also be a bit of a hassle at first.
Pack Your Sense of Adventure: Don’t be shy when it comes to exploring. Speak to the people, taste the local cuisine, learn about the history and take lots of awesome inspiring photos. Ensure to bring your sense of adventure, make lasting memories and enjoy your tropical vacation to the fullest.
We also recommended to bring a backpack to keep your devices, money, sun block, hat and ID during the activities.
