What shouldn’t be missing in your suitcase for Punta Cana

Let’s see which basics you can’t leave behind when preparing your luggage.

Clothing for day and night

When choosing what clothes to bring to Punta Cana, it’s important to know that the climate in Punta Cana is warm and very mild throughout the year, with an average annual temperature of between 27 and 31ºC.

Thus, during the day, it is recommended that you wear cool, lightweight clothing, preferably made of cotton, linen or other breathable and quick-drying materials. Don’t forget accessories such as sunglasses, a hat and comfortable shoes to walk on the sand.

On the other hand, at night time in Punta Cana, it will be a good idea to bring several elegant cocktail pieces to go out to dinner and partake in the hotel’s other leisure activities, such as going to the casino or the theatre. Keep in mind that the temperature may drop slightly after sunset and don’t forget to include several scarves or long-sleeved jackets.

Basics in your toiletry bag

Your toiletry bag for Punta Cana shouldn’t be very different from the one you usually prepare for any other international destination. Two of the products that you especially need to bring are sunscreen and mosquito repellent.

Sunscreen is essential not only for prolonged exposure to the sun, but also for any other activity you do on the island. The SPF must be high, since the sun can burn the skin on cloudy days or when the temperature feels cooler than it is, due to the fresh sea breeze.

As for mosquito repellent, it’s especially important to apply it at dawn and dusk, times of day when more mosquitos are out.

First aid kit

To travel to Punta Cana, just like any other international destination, it’s a good idea to have medical insurance that covers everything from small setbacks to any major accident. In addition to health insurance, carrying a small first aid kit in your suitcase with basic medical and nursing products can save you annoying long waits at the doctor or unexpected expenses. Some of the recommended medicines and products are analgesics, antihistamines, dizziness pills, dressing material, etc.

Punta Cana is a very touristy region where you can buy any product or garment you’ll need during your trip. Keep in mind that once there, you will also want to go shopping and buy typical souvenirs from Punta Cana, therefore it’s a good idea to save some space in your suitcase.

Although you can find any product or garment that you’ll need during your stay in any region and at all the best resorts in Punta Cana, you should follow these recommendations, as well as other tips for travelling to Punta Cana.
