Pack Light Tips (9)

You really don't need too much!

Luggage and bags a carry on is more than enough for 5 days

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear for 5 days I packed the following: one dress, one pair of capri pants, 4 blouses, one summer skirt, 1 pair of flip flops, 1 hat to protect from the sun, 1 light sweater, 1 cotton blouse with long sleeves and 3 bathing suits. there is no need for fancy clothes, high heels and fancy jewelry. there is no night life on this island and no need to wear fancy clothes for dinner (or even makeup for that matter). everything is very laid back and easy on the island. take it as it is and enjoy this simple lifestyle.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies take your prescription medication with you! other than that, you can get everything from here. if you do not check in your luggage it is unlikely that you can take too much with you anyway.

Photo Equipment this is something you should make sure you do not forget home. it is hard to get memory cards for the digital camera here. there are not too many places that sell them or too many options available. bring all the photo equipment you think you may need from home.

Miscellaneous if you do not check in your luggage, the first purchase you should make once you reach your hotel is sunscreen. You really need it to protect yourself from the hot sun that can burn your skin really bad.

Miscellaneous Because it's always so freaking HOT in the Philippines, in addition to light, cool clothing, the kind you need in August, the one item that you should have severl of are handkerchiefs. You'll sweat like a goose on Christmas Eve, and a handkerchief will help keep your face, neck and eyes dry.

Plenty of sun block

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear You don't really need to take too many clothes, not many people dressed up in the evenings, most people wore only shorts and tops. Quite a lot of the clothes I took didn't get worn, a couple of times I felt over dressed.

Packing List

Luggage and bags Less is more. In the Bahamas you rarely need a jacket and tie, unless you're staying someplace fancy. And if you, then you already know the rules.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Bathing suit, straw hat, flip flops, sunglasses.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies Lots and Lots of sunscreen.

Packing List

Luggage and bags Travel light. Use a backpack or a lightweight duffel bag.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear You won't need any dress clothes. Just bring shorts and shirts, swimsuits, a hat with a brim to block the sun and lots of sunscreen. We brought raingear and were glad we had it as we came through some heavy rain while we were sailing.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies You won't be able to buy much in the Out Islands, so bring along whatever meds and first aid items you think you might need. Also bring your own toiletries. Everything has to be shipped in to these islands, so if the items you want are there, they will be expensive.

Photo Equipment We took a lot of photos, but didn't bring our video camera as we were afraid that it would get wet while sailing.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear The sun is incredible here. Bring sunblock with a SPF of at least 30. Reapply it from time to time. You will still tan and possibly burn. We brought lightweight long sleeve shirts and slacks as we were on the water 24/7.

Miscellaneous Just travel as light as you can.
