Cancun Packing List

September 22, 2019
Packing and getting ready for a vacation in Cancun, Mexico is not as easy as throwing in a couple of bathing suits inside your suitcase and catching an airplane. It requires a little more thinking and planning. Cancun is a tropical beach holiday destination with a lot of cheap beer, attractive youngsters, and scintillating beaches and you don’t want to be found wanting in any department. We have divided the list of things you need to pack for your Cancun beach holiday into three types – essentials for any beach holiday, clothing and accessories and the required medicines. Besides these, your Cancun trip also requires some documents. Essentials to pack for Cancun holiday 1. Water bottles Some tourists are known to have fallen sick after drinking non-safe water in Mexico. Not all water you get in Cancun is safe to drink, so we suggest you take a few water bottles just to give you a head start. Most good hotels and resorts will provide you with safe drinking water, but when you are outdoors it is best to carry your own water. It is better to be safe than be sick during your holiday. 2. Sunscreen with high SPF Mexican sun is significantly closer to the equator than you think and hence it can get hot outdoors. SPF 15 sunscreens won’t cut the ice (pun intended!) and you will need an SPF 50 sunscreen lotion to keep the sun burns away. Don’t just keep this sunscreen in your bag, use it every single day. 3. Insect Repellent spray Tropical countries have a lot of insects because the weather is suitable for their survival. Besides, a Cancun holiday is mostly outdoors. This means, you need to pack an insect repellent spray for your trip. Make sure your repellent has enough DEET, because you want it to work. In case you didn’t know DEET is an ingredient in every insect repellent spray and provides protection against mosquitoes, fleas, chiggers, ticks, leeches, and other insects. 4. Water proof mobile pouches You may be in Cancun for a spring break, or a family vacation but you won’t be far away from the water and therefore waterproof mobile pouches become important. You can use these pouches to keep your money as well, as you get into the water for a quick swim, or a snorkeling session etc. It even makes sense to have one extra, just so you can help a new-found friend. 5. Lip Balm with SPF Folks who haven’t had a lot of beach holidays don’t know that their lips can also get sunburnt. Yes, lips do take a toll under the Cancun sun and hence need protection. We suggest you buy a lip balm with high SPF (something more than 15) and ensure it is with you whenever you step out in Cancun. If you are holidaying during the summer, we suggest you keep applying it on your lips at regular intervals. In fact, if your vacation is a bit longer we suggest you
