Are you ready to dive into the vivid blue waters of Cancun? Maybe you have a list of the “must do” things in this beautiful city because of how much it has to offer, but try not to get overwhelmed. When you are headed to a beautiful city, it is important to pack certain items. There certain items might be your ultimate savior when you are having fun on the beaches or when you are heading out for nighttime fun.
To make your Cancun trip even more fun, here are the things you need to pack:
1. Lots of Water
Rule of thumb is “do not drink water in Mexico.” As weird as it may sound, it is important that you pay attention to this crucial point. There is a high chance of you getting sick with the water there because –in reality- it sucks. Therefore, if you are willing to have the time of your life, it is important to load up a suitcase with water.
2. High SPF Sunscreen
This is a given. When you are hitting the beach, it is important to have a high SPF sunscreen on so you can protect your delicate skin. An ordinary SPF 15 sunscreen will not do the job. Even if you are prompt on getting that glowy tan, it is important to lather up sunscreen on your body to prevent the redness from occurring.
The recommended SPF would be 50 because it will give ultimate protection.
3. Plastic Bags
Plastic bags are not just for holding wet clothes or food; these bags will protect your cell phone when you are on the beach, near the water. There is no individual that would want to risk phone damage when they are on the beach for various reasons, the major one being, photos!
4. Lots of Hair Ties
Cancun is a hot city, which means it will be humid and sticky. For this reason, no one would want their hair to be stuck on the nape of their neck. Therefore, it is important to stock up on hair ties. Keep in mind, your hair will be all over the place, which is why you need to opt for hair ties that will not tangle your already tangled hair.
5. Sun-Cooling Lotion
Despite the amount of sunscreen you are lathering on your skin, it is important for you to apply sun-cooling lotion so your skin can cool down at the end of the day. After being in the sun for extended periods, your skin may feel irritated and super warm and the only remedy for this would be sun-cooling lotion.
6. Portable Phone Charger
How horrible would it be if you were stuck in a foreign city with a dead phone? This not only sounds like a scene from a survival movie, but it also sounds like something that can ruin your mood throughout your stay. In this case, the best thing you can do is take a portable charger along. No matter where you are or what you are doing, you will be able to hook your phone on its lifeline.
Now that you know what to pack when you are headed to Cancun, make sure you do not forget anything!
