Tips / Destination

Visiting the Caribbean can be an exciting adventure. The Caribbean is made up of islands surrounded by beautiful waters and beaches with good food, music and vibes that will provide you with a diverse group of people and cultural experiences. Before your fun Caribbean adventure begins, check out this list of things to pack.


  • Sunscreen, sunhats and sunglasses are essential items to have when traveling to the Caribbean as the weather is tropical and is bound to be hot and humid. The goal is to get a tan and not sunburn, so pack this first.
  • Because of the climate, your lips are bound to get dry and feel chapped throughout the day, so always keep your lips moisturized.
  • Water shoes are necessary depending on what water activities you choose to do. There may be seaweed or tiny pebbles that can hurt the feet so take these as a precaution. Also, keep some flip-flops in your bag for when you want to go strolling along the beach.
  • Like most tropical islands, the Caribbean is hot and heat attracts bugs and insects. Prevent a possible allergic reaction or worse by keeping bug spray and anti-itch cream handy.
  • Light, airy clothes are best because of the tropical climate. Shorts, skirts, t-shirts and light dresses are ideal. Bring a light jacket if you plan to stay in a mountainous area as it can get a bit chilly.
  • Casual slip-on shoes or sandals are enough to get you through your vacation. You do not ever need to pack warm or winter clothes when traveling to the Caribbean.
  • Allergy medication— this applies for anywhere you decide to travel.
  • Keep a clear and open mind for all the possibilities and make space for a fun time.


This pack list has some of the essentials, so all you need to do after getting these items is to show up at your destination and be ready for a good time.
