    Packing List

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Don't come with heavy luggage because you just need to be comfortable...unless you are going to stay in a five star hotel :-)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Most of the time you should be wearing sport and light clothes. Here temperature is humid so you will be sweating a little bit...but don't worry...you will also be feeling the breeze, so that's a relief!
    You must bring sun block lotion so you can protect your skin from the sun, and sunglasses. A cap or a hat is also desirable but is not absolutely necessary.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Public rest rooms are available for everybody. You don't have to pay to use them. Is clever if you are always with some napkins in your pocket because sometimes you will not find bathroom tissue in the rest rooms.
    About medical supplies...you don't have to worry about it because here you can find with no kind of problems, pharmacy, doctors, hospitals...medicine here is good :-)

    Luggage and bags: You don't need a whole lot of clothes, so pack light unless you plan on taking your own hiking gear or scuba tanks.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You sure don't need a parka, but bring beach sandals for obvious reasons and an umbrella because it can come up a bad cloud in no time flat.

    Photo Equipment: A 35mm camera will do just fine.

    Kodak Advantix

    Luggage and bags: If you bring luggage, get a nice suitcase and put a lock on it.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Well, if you're gonna do a lot of walking, wear socks and comfortable sneakers, shorts and a tank top, cause it's very hot down there. And if you're going to the beach, swim suit, sandals, and a towel, and always bring a change of clothes just incase you decide to go out to eat afterwards.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I would bring a medical kit just incase, but you shouldn't have to worry about anything, cause they have all the same supplies and what not as we do.

    Photo Equipment: Always have a camera on you, cause PR is just awesome and you would want to take lots and lots of pics!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Wear sunblock 24-7!

    Luggage and bags: This is a tropical island, so warm clothes are the ticket. I try to take as little as possible and items that I can mix and match.

    2 pair of slacks usually one black and one white
    1 black jacket to dress up the slacks or for casual dinning)
    3 dresses, usually 1 black dress and the other two can be floral or solid cotton or linen which can go from day to night
    1 pair of Capri's
    3 skirts or shorts which can be worn either during the day or into the early evening
    2 white t-shirts or tank tops
    3 casual/dress shirts
    1 pair of flip-flops for the beach
    1 walking shoes for daytime touring
    2 pairs sandals
    2 bathing suits and 2 cover-ups
    one week’s worth of undergarments
    2-3 pajamas or oversized t-shirts for sleeping
    4 spare pairs of contact lenses
    contact lens solution
    spare glasses
    extra pair of sunglasses
    blow dryer (never leave home without it)
    travel iron
    cosmetics in a travel case
    my favorite shampoo and conditioner in travel sizes
    hand and body lotion travel size
    Tylenol, allergy medication and any other medication I am taking at the time
    Hair accessories, brush, hats or caps
    2 cameras, plenty of film and extra batteries for the camera
    Guide books, itineraries, maps, an extra ATM card for withdrawal from savings if my regular card fails, 2 credit cards, $500 in cash for just in case of emergency
    Extra travel bag to put all my purchases in.

    I usually where something that can go from any weather (if it is winter in NY, then I wear a pair of jeans, walking shoes, t-shirt with a sweather on tope and my jacket). I also carry my tooth brush (no morning breath here), something to read, glasses, contact case and travel solution, Tylenol (I usually get headaches during long flights).

    Miscellaneous: Don't forget your driving licence! There are no trains and not regular buses lines. The only public choose is 'Publico' (vans by the letters P or PD) that are shared taxis for also twelve passengers. This option is an hallucinating experience also for short distances, like to go to the beach, due to the traffic jam and to the numbers of stops for each passenger!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pack a swimming suit. There are so many wonderful beaches. Take a mask and snorkle. I spent four hours one day just floating and snorkling.
