RECOMMENDATIONS & TIPS
Take beach shoes with you for walking in the water and swimming. It is a common occurrence for vacationers to step on stingray tails, sea urchins and other things.
Short sleeved shirts are better to take than t-shirts. On extremely hot days you can unbutton your shirt and allow better cooling. A shirt also doubles as dressware for restaurants.
Many people recommend 100% cotton however we have found that 100% Viscose is the best material for travel clothing for hot climates. This material is super light, does not crease and lets you breath so you do not sweat. Cotton is recommended for underwear and socks.
Zipper lube. Humid weather will in time reap havoc with your suitcase/backpack zippers. Protect your zippers by coating them with zipper lube, which can be purchased at most dive stores. A candle will do the same trick in a pinch!
Buy an Under Water Camera if you plan on swimming or snorkeling. You will be amazed at what can be found 20 feet from shore on some beaches.
If you have a printer print off some personal cards with your name and e-mail address for staying in contact with friends you make.
