Are you planning your summer vacation to one of Secrets Resorts & Spas? As with any Caribbean destination, there are a few specifics to note as you pack your bags for Unlimited-Luxury® at Secrets! We have a list of necessities for an enjoyable vacation – so you won’t be caught missing anything or packing up your entire house to bring on vacation.
Bathing Suits: Our resorts offer some of the best-known beaches in Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. It’s best to pack at least two bathing suits. This way, each suit has time to dry each day and you won’t get stuck putting on a wet bathing suit–which is never comfortable.
Beach Cover-Up: A cover-up for arriving and leaving from the beach or pool is a necessity at Secrets Resorts & Spas. You won’t have to walk through air-conditioned lobbies or restaurants in a bathing suit. For men, a t-shirt is an easy cover-up and for women, a light sundress is easy to throw on, and it’s stylish!
Light pajamas: A comfortable outfit at night is good for lounging in your room and to answer your door for room service.
Daytime clothes: Bring one casual outfit for each day of your vacation, plus one extra just in case. Shorts, t-shirts, sundresses and tank tops will be perfect for most days during your vacation.
Nighttime clothes: Nights can get surprisingly cool some days, so pack a long sleeved shirt, a light sweater and pair of long pants. Make sure you check with your specific resort for dress codes—some restaurants have specific casual dress codes. Women can often wear a cocktail dress and men can wear linen pants and a polo shirt.
Shoes: Bring a couple pairs of sandals, including one pair you can comfortably walk in around the resort. If you plan on scheduling a day excursion, make sure you bring along a nice pair of walking shoes or sneakers.
Personal Items: In addition to any medications you need, you should bring a tube of sunscreen with at least 30 SPF. The Caribbean sun can be surprisingly strong. A travel umbrella can also be helpful, in case of passing rain. And last but not least, don’t forget your passport!
