5 Things To Pack For Your Grand Cayman Trip

Your visit to Grand Cayman will be filled with wild sea adventures and unique, unforgettable experiences. Making sure you have everything you need to enjoy the moments and capture the excitement can help make your trip more satisfying all around. Here are some things to make sure to bring along for the ride:
1. Your Camera
From swimming with stingrays to snorkeling through the coral reefs, exploring novelty shops and picnicking with a movie under the stars, you’ll want to capture it all. Consider a waterproof case for your phone or camera so you can take big risks for the great family shot. UV protector filters for camera lenses might help, too.
2. Summer-Friendly Clothes
Let your skin breathe in the humid summer days with light and flowy tanks and shorts. And of course, don’t forget your swimsuit! The island style is relaxed and somewhat conservative. Some might call it “smart-casual” so it’s often best to keep beachwear at the beach and bring some breathable pants for nights out on the town. A jacket or sweatshirt could be helpful for evening layering if the air gets a little chilly.
3. Comfortable Shoes
Whether you’re roaming the shops or crashing on the sun-drenched sand, you’ll likely be seeking comfort. After all, this is your vacation. There aren’t many nature trails or hikes on the islands so don’t worry so much about sneakers. Comfortable sandals should do the trick and maybe a pair of dressier shoes for nights out at the local watering hole.
4. Sun Protection and Insect Repellent
From sunglasses to sunscreen, you’ll want to make sure you and the kiddos have all bases covered. It might also be worth considering some protective sun shirts for your time in the water, especially if you’ll be out on long adventures snorkeling the coral reef. Insect repellent is also a wise choice to toss in the suitcase to make your tropical nights a little less itchy.
5. Your Travel Essentials
Passports, photo IDs, plane tickets, hotel reservations. Be sure to bring these and perhaps some extra copies just in case things get wet or wild. Don’t forget to keep these items safe throughout your travel. Additional essentials for a tropical vacation can include protective phone or camera cases which are a worthy investment, too. Ensure your digital gadgets don’t get damaged by the sun, salt, and humidity. Major credit cards are accepted on the islands but keeping small bills around can make shopping with local vendors or tipping servers easier.
So now that you’ve got your bags packed, when do we leave?
