What to pack for vacation: island edition

Have you ever packed for vacation and were absolutely SURE that you had everything you needed, only to find out that you forgot something and had to pay WAY too much to replace it during your trip? This is specifically the reason for this post. I (Alicia) am someone who loves to make lists to ensure that I haven’t forgotten anything, and figured that if I have benefited from making a packing list, our friends may benefit from it too! Below, we’ve compiled a list of what we typically pack for a luxury vacation to the Caribbean.

While this list is pretty specific to us, we’ve made a couple of tweaks to hopefully include items that you may consider bringing as well. The list is gender inclusive, so don’t be surprised to see a dress AND a suit in the same list. We tried to make a single list which includes items for the majority of men and women, instead of two separate lists. We’ve made our list completely free to download, so if you’re interested in printing it out and using it to pack for your next trip, we encourage you to do it! If there’s anything we’ve missed, leave us a comment below and we will add it to the list!

Happy traveling!
