You need these 18 Caribbean travel tips to see your way to more fun and relaxation for less cash.

Stick to Cotton

When packing for your trip, the best articles of clothing to pack are those that are 100% cotton.

1

Overestimate the Sun

Load up on sunscreen, hats, lip balms, and anything else you can use to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays.

2

Keep Swimwear for Time in the Water

It is a sign of disrespect in the Caribbean to wear your beach gear anywhere but when on the beach.

3

Beware Manchineel Trees

These kinds of trees are toxic and produce a painful sap that can easily drip on you, especially if you take cover underneath one during a rainstorm.

4

Keep Your Clothes On

There are beaches in the Caribbean archipelago that allow for nude or topless sunbathing, but they are not common.

5

Talk to the Concierge

Whatever hotel you’re staying at is going to be your best resource for where to go and what to do.
