4 rules of packing for your Cancun vacations
Rule No. 1:
Bring only what’s necessary. To be honest: we often pack a suitcase knowing what are the essential things and the “Just in case”. Well, it’s ok to have some other changes just in case, but wearing a sweater to Cancun in Summer is totally different! It just occupies space in your suitcase, making it heavier, and you could use that space for something more important. Remember that you’ll spent most of the time at one of many gorgeous beaches! A nice hat to protect you from the sun may be a good idea though…
Rule No. 2:
Bring self-care products that you really can’t live without. Most resorts offer these amenities for free so you won’t need them, but we get that you may want o use your preferred shampoo brand. Just remember to pour it in small 100ml bottles or you’ll have to leave them at the airport. And don’t forget to pack everything in a plastic bag to prevent spills which could stain your clothes.
Rule No. 3:
Avoid bringing food. Especially if it is not vacuum packed. Changes in temperature can cause food to spoil or lose liquid or grease and stain all our clothing.
Rule No. 4:
Always pack wet wipes or toilet paper. You may end up needing it. Not all public restrooms or hostels are always equipped with toilet paper (trust us on this) but it can also help in the event of casual food stains. Also, it’s hot here! so paper or towels are very useful to clean up the sweat. (You’ll thank us for that)
