Villa Del Palmar

Packing suggestions:

  • Collapsible cooler, bottle opener, and koozies, if you're planning on spending a bit of time on the beaches. Hopefully, we'll all have a collapsible cooler, so we can have iced down adult beverages at the pool or beach.
  • Sunscreen and lip balm - don't rely on having access to a fully stocked department/convenience store on every corner.  Harold's new favorite sunscreen is Coppertone's Continuous Spray - available in SPF 10, 15, 30 and 50.  Sunscreen is more expensive in CSL.
  • Beach towels - if you have room, bring beach towels for use on snorkeling and sightseeing trips.
  • At least 2 bathing suits - one in use and one drying for later.  Buy a sarong when you get here instead of packing a cover-up.
  • Casual clothes - mainly T-shirts and shorts.  We don't anticipate going anywhere with a dress code on this trip, but if you want to be prepared, pack a pair of long pants and a collared shirt (men) and a dress (ladies).
  • Comfortable walking shoes and sandals for the beach and/or pool.  We have the best intentions of trying to walk to town at least once, so if you want to walk along, bring tennis shoes!
  • Sunglasses, hat and/or visor
  • Hand sanitizer - seen this recommendation on several sites, so we're bringing some!
  • Cameras - if you're not using a digital camera, bring plenty of film.  Maybe a one-use underwater camera with a flash for the snorkeling trip.
  • Coffee, sweetener, and creamer - coffee makers are provided in each unit, but you must provide the coffee.
  • Pack a rolled up bag of some sort in case you need to carry back some souvenirs.

We'll be bringing the basic first aid stuff like band-aids, Neosporin, Alka-Seltzer, Excedrin, aspirin, Imodium, and aloe vera.

We're checking with the resort re toiletries - fairly sure that the resort will supply shampoo and soap, but we're verifying this.  If not, we have lots of the hotel bottles that we can bring for everyone.  Update - the resort DOES supply shampoo and soap.
