    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: If you're here for a week a roller board and a large carry on should be enough to carry all the clothing you will need. Belize is a subtropical location and there are two types of seasons, the rainy and dry season, so cool and casual clothing is recommended.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Summery dresses, shorts, t-shirts and tanks, bathing suits (more than one), flip-flops, dressy sandals, water shoes, hiking shoes, casual summery attire.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I take my own shampoo, conditioner, brush, hair accessories, sun glasses, contact lens solution and a spare pair of lenses, my glasses, lotion, mosquito repellent, first aid kit which includes alcohol swabs, anti-itch cream, bandaids, my perscription meds (I am asthmatic), sun block/sun lotion,

    Photo Equipment: I travel with my Sony camera, extra battery and charger, an extra memory card with 1gb memory and for this trip I also purchased an underwater camera

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: At least two bathing suits, flip-flops, beach towel, sunscreen, hat, sun glasses, beach bag.

    Miscellaneous: Take along a windbreaker that you can use while on the boat as it can get chilly or suddenly rain, and don't forget an umbrealla.

    Mommy and me swim

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The island is very casual and if you go in the rainy season you will get wet.
    Shorts and cotton tops/t-shirts are fine in the daytime. Capri's at night.
    Shoes that you don't mind getting wet. Bring along a lightweight rain poncho.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Don't forget the sunscreen and the mosquito repellent.

    Photo Equipment: Bring extra batteries and lots of memory or film. It is expensive here.
    The rains wreck havoc with cameras so bring some zip-lock bags for them.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Bring your own booties, and fins especially if you need a small size. Bring your own snorkel and mask for sanitary reasons. Life vests for children.

    Miscellaneous: Groceries cost more than they do in the US, especially snack food. You might want to bring some from home.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: When spending lots of time in the sun, lots of time in the saltwater, and drinking lots of rum punch....be sure to check and re-apply sunblock often!!! You'll end up with a hangover AND a sweltering sunburn!!
    Headache remedy, noxema to cool your skin, and aloe gel with lidocaine to take the sting away!!

    Photo Equipment: Underwater camera!!

    On the Reef

    Photo Equipment: If you are doing ANY activity in the water, bring an underwater camera. I didn't, and I've been kicking myself in the ass ever since!
