Travel Essentials Never Go on Vacation Without
Whenever you pack, mistakes are made. We always manage to forget something vital—pads and tampons, deodorant, makeup remover, you name it. For one thing, most travelers never remembered to bring an outlet adapter on an international trip. Most forget travel size toothpaste on more occasions than they would like to admit. While adapters and toothpaste are share-able items, underwear isn’t something you can borrow from a travel companion.
The most efficient way to pack is to keep a running list of travel essentials—things you know you’ll need for literally any trip your taking. You should have one list in your phone for domestic travel, and one for international travel; both will keep you from experiencing the apparently inevitable oh-god-I-can’t-believe-I-forgot-to-pack-that!.
To make sure you’re not missing anything, We create a go-to travel essentials list. While some of these recommendations are pretty straightforward (books, noise-canceling headphones, outlet adapters), others were expert-level life hacks you would never consider before.
The Ultimate Packing Checklist
So you’re going to the Caribbean for a few days (or week) of beach relaxation, swimming, and maybe even some diving. Here’s what to pack for a Caribbean vacation whether you’re headed anywhere from Grenada to Puerto Rico.
What Not to Pack for the Caribbean
Warm clothes: The beauty of the Caribbean is that its warm year round. You won’t need warm clothing or rain gear unless you’re traveling during hurricane season.
Don’t forget a beach bag that can handle all of your towels and beach accessories. Some great options partly mesh bag with several pockets and compartments for all your family gear and see-through to eliminate the need to dig in order to find everything.
