Ideas On What To Pack for the Dominican Republic
- Sunscreen: Year-round sun and hot weather can really do a number on your skin, especially if you’re not used to the heat. Use it, even if you don’t plan to visit the beach.
- Bathing suit: With so many beautiful beaches to choose from along with the hotel’s awesome pool, you don’t want to miss out on the fun just because you forgot your suit.
- Light clothes: After a day of baseball or sightseeing, you’ll be glad you packed those cotton items.
- Comfortable shoes: Comfortable shoes mean happy feet. And happy feet equals a great vacation.
- Bug repellent: Protect yourself from unpleasant mosquito bites, especially if you plan on visiting the El Yunque rainforest or doing outdoor activities.
- Rain gear: Bring an umbrella or poncho to keep you dry. The tropical climate is very unpredictable and it can start raining out of the blue.
- Hat: Protect your most precious body part from the sun’s rays. It also keeps you cooler.
- Dress clothes: Even though the overall dress code is casual 24/7, some nightclubs, bars, restaurants, and shows require more formal attire.
- Flip-flops: They protect your feet from the hot sand and wash off easily when it’s time to go.
