1.- Hot weather clothing

Shorts, dresses, and t-shirts are essentials for a trip to the beach. We suggest you bring at least three shorts, five t-shirts, and two of your favorite beach dresses. Swimsuits are a must, at least bring three different ones and bring an extra bag for them, it will be helpful when you need to change. Don’t forget a pair of water shoes and a rash guard for the most adventurous activities like zip-lines. 




2.- Beach equipment

We know that you are here for the perfect tan, but don’t forget to protect your skin from the sun. Pack a hat, sunglasses and biodegradable sunscreen, your body will thank you. Other essentials to visit Cancun are a pair of flip-flops, a beach mat, your favorite book and of course a big bag to put all things in it.




3.- Health and beauty items

The last items we pack and most of the times the ones we usually forget at home. Keep in an extra bag with your personal items and make sure to bring only the necessary. Remember most of the hotels and resorts have complimentary soap, shampoo, conditioner, and towels.
