What do you need to know before you arrive? This handy checklist covers the basics. Here are a few other tips:
- Beachwear - An obvious one, but make sure you pack bathing suits, flipflops, sunglasses, suntan lotion, goggles, and a nice bag to carry everything with you (you can certainly buy anything you've forgotten once you're here).
- Dress for success - Puerto Ricans are a fashionable lot, and you'll find well-dressed people especially if you're into nightlife. Fashionable and sexy clothing will help you fit right in at the clubs, lounges, and better restaurants.
- Pack light - There is great shopping in Puerto Rico, not just for internationally famous brands but also for local fashion, souvenirs and other products. Make sure you have some space in your luggage!
- Leave winter behind - Even accounting for hurricane season, it rarely gets cold in Puerto Rico. Beyond a sweater or two, you probably won't need warm clothes while you're here. Check the weather to make sure, but don't overpack for the cold.
