Luggage and bags:
With the summer months pack light weight clothes. You will also need personal items. If staying at a resort ask for a kitchenette it saves on food cost if your gonna be there about a week. I like to bring non perishable food from home it’s usually a bit cheaper. I have even brought a cooler of meat and a planed dinner menu for the family, like Chilli one night Spaghetti another and so on. If you don’t plan on cooking you won’t need much for the kitchen other than snacks and something to drink.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Don’t forget the sandals of flip-flops and tennis shoes.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring what personal items you usually use. No need to over bring they have a Wal-Mart and things are priced about like anyplace else.
Photo Equipment: Bring Lots of film, a digital is what I like to use.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Don't forget the kids a few beach toys. You can get them much cheaper at home before you leave.
Miscellaneous: We like taking a metal detector. You never know when you might find a diamond ring ;-)
