Don't Leave Home Without It: Tips for Packing for the Caribbean - Articles Surfing

No matter who you are, it's easy to get caught up in the fun and excitement of taking a trip to the Caribbean . And, of course, that means it's easy to forget a few items you'll need. Most can be picked up later, but the items on this list are essential.

Tickets, Hotel Reservations, and Other Bookings: Make sure you bring any paperwork you might need for any tickets and reservations you have.

Passports and Photo IDs: No matter what each nation requests for entry, you'll need to make sure you have it handy when you reach land. Recently tightened restrictions mean travelers may want to check twice before traveling in 2006.

Appropriate Attire: While many travelers have no problem wearing beach attire into local shops, this may bother locals. Make sure to look into island customs before packing, and remember to keep it light ' light-weight and light-colored materials will keep you feeling cool.

Sunblock and Other Protection: Whether you plan to spend a day tanning on the beach or some time exploring the jungle, it's important to protect yourself. Sunblock is one way to keep the sun off, but hats also keep your face out of direct light, and insect repellent can keep away mosquitoes and other irritating bugs.

Budget: Having a budget in mind can help travelers out; it's best to know how much you should expect to spend each day of your travels. Knowing if taxes, such as the departure tax for airlines, are included in the bill can also help travelers keep on-budget.

Extra Space: Souvenir shopping can lead to many fun purchases, but it can be difficult without a good way to pack these items. Trinkets can often be mailed back home. Travelers should check customs regulations before they go to find out what they may return with.

If you've considered everything on this list, you shouldn't be missing a thing during your trip to the Caribbean. After all, these islands are known for everything they have to offer travelers. Style, seclusion, niche gifts, and nightlife all play a part in creating the Caribbean atmosphere.
