January 24, 2020 0 Comments

Flight booked? Check. Resort booked? Check. Bag packed? Not quite…

You have your vacay planned to a dreamy Caribbean island– you just have to pack now! No matter which island you’re headed to, we’ve compiled a list of must-haves in your suitcase that will make your island getaway that much sweeter.

1. Passport

Okay, this might be obvious, but you wouldn’t believe how many people forget their passport in the hustle and bustle of packing! Some islands, like Puerto Rico and the USVI, don’t require a passport, but it’s always handy to have it.

2. Fun swimsuits

If you’re going to be living your best life on the beach, obviously you need some cute swimsuits. Whether you’re ready to flaunt your stuff or not, it’s always helpful to have a few swimmies to choose from.

3. Sunglasses

Heading to the beach means prepping for loads of sunshine. Bring those pretty sunnies along to protect your eyes at the pool or beach.

4. Environment-safe Sunscreen

Ocean conservation is important–and what a perfect way to do your part! With environment-safe sunscreen, you’ll not only help protect the environment but also your own skin from toxic ingredients and chemicals.

5. Comfortable Shoes

Whether you decide to hike a volcano or take an ATV through the rainforest, you’ll want some comfortable shoes for your excursions! If your adventure will take you through bodies of water, you might want to pack water shoes so that you don’t mess up your favorite kicks.

6. Medications

Anytime you’re travelling, you’ll always want your necessary meds–but it wouldn’t hurt to bring along Tylenol, Pepto or allergy meds, too.

7. Camera

Yes, yes, we know you have an amazing camera on your phone, but if you have a knack for pictures, you won’t want to miss out on amazing shots at some of the world’s best beaches.

8. Waterproof Phone Pouch

Whether you’re by the pool or the sea, you’ll want to have a waterproof pouch to hold your phone. This lets you take pics without stressing about the water ruining your phone and it also comes in handy when you go on excursions!

9. Beach Towel

While most resorts will provide towels, sometimes there’s nothing better than a cute beach towel to bring along.

10. Bluetooth Speaker

Pools will most likely have music playing, but hitting the beach is a little different. It wouldn’t hurt to bring a small Bluetooth speaker to jam out on the beach.

Now that you’re packed, it’s time to get to the beach! If you haven’t already planned your Caribbean vacay, check out our all-inclusive deals and you’ll be at the beach of your dreams in no time!
