- 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
- 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
- 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
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.
