Luggage and bags:
Make sure you take adequate mosquito repellent or they will bite you.
They itch for days.
Take plenty of sun tan creams as the sun is strong when it comes out.
Make sure your in your designated weight before you go to the airport to fly home as they will charge big money for the overloads.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take a comfy pair of shoes as the grounds are big and you'll be doing lots of walking.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Take toiletries as you can never have enough you can always leave it for the reps as its difficult to buy overthere.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies:
bring plenty of toiletries cos u can leave them behide for the staff u become friends with. Pack things like head ache tablets cos is no where to get hold of any
Photo Equipment: Plenty of films and an under water camara, i stayed for 15 nights and used 8 films and an under water cam
Miscellaneous: Also bring a old storecard of something of that sort cos u can then leave ur aircon on 24/7
Luggage and bags:
We brought four full, large pieces of luggage each filled with many gifts for the staff. We were told by friends that many people bring toiletry items, pens, papers, crayons, toys, hats, t-shirts, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and the list goes on and on...all to give as gifts to the various staff members that you will get to know.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We packed one days worth of clothing in our carry on bag in case our luggage was lost. We had our bathing suit, shorts, underclothes, shirt and toiletries all in our carry on luggage so we wouldn't miss one moment in the pool.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: We brought extra toiletries with us knowing we would be leaving behind anything we didn't use by the end of our vacation. There is a doctor on call 24 hours and we did need his services when my husband cut his knee quite badly. The service was FREE but I tipped the doctor generously because he did such a wonderful job. I would suggest bringing aloe products in case of sunburn.
Photo Equipment: I got one roll of film developed at the resort which was rather expensive but I really wanted to see how the photos turned out. When I went to process the film, the gentleman told me I didn't need 400 film in Cuba because it is sunny. He said I could get away with the all purpose film which is cheaper.
Take shoes that you can wear on the beach and dry quickly...ie flip flops
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: DON'T forget the immodium and Pepto Bezmal
Miscellaneous: For some reason the resort doesn't have face clothes which I really would have liked.
Also take along a theros-type cofee mug for your never ending drinks whether they be just water, fruit juice or what ever...much easier to have at the beach then plastic glasses.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Everything that we needed was available at the resort. It is a good idea to bring some small toiletry items to leave as tips for the staff performing room make-up duties. This kind of thing is hard to come-by for the average Cuban.
