Packing Ideas

Ideas On What To Pack for 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 hotels 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 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. 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.
