Updated: Sep 13, 2022

A beautiful island destination in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico has a lot to offer for all kinds of travelers. Whether you love spending long hours on the beach or going on exhilarating hikes in search of hidden natural treasures, Puerto Rico has something for everyone. It is an especially perfect escape for people who like to pack their itineraries with a blend of sightseeing and adventure activities. But with so much to do, you might be wondering what to pack for your next Puerto Rico vacation. Well, fret not, because we have you covered with our list of essentials for an unforgettable getaway to the Island of Enchantment. Read on to know what they are.

  • Comfortable shoes Whether you wish to explore the charming cobblestone street of Old San Juan or go on a day-long adventure to El Yunque National Forest, you will be walking a lot. This is why it is crucial that you bring comfortable footwear. While flats and flip flops are ideal for the beach, you should also bring a pair of hiking shoes if you plan of going on a Puerto Rico hiking tour.

  • Sunscreen Since you will be out in the sun for a better part of the day, sunscreen is non-negotiable as it will protect your skin against the harmful UV rays of the sun. Make sure you pick a reef-safe sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.

  • Bathing suits Puerto Rico has some pretty picturesque beaches, some of which are uncrowded and untouched. So, don’t forget to pack your bathing suits.

  • Light and breezy clothing Puerto Rico enjoys warm temperatures all year round. So, no matter when you choose to visit, you should carry light and breezy clothing that keeps you cool and comfortable all through the day and into the night. Natural fabrics, such as linen and cotton, are usually recommended. Women should carry sundresses, shorts, skirts, and so on, while men can wear linen shirts, t-shirts, khaki shorts, and so on.

  • Hat Keep your face protected against the sun while also taking your personal style to the next level with a wide-brimmed hat. It can come in especially handy on beaches that do not have sufficient natural shade.

  • Bag to carry your essentials Whether you carry a bunch of stuff or not, you will still need a bag for your everyday essentials, such as your water bottles, camera, sunglasses, wallets, etc. A backpack is an ideal choice as you can walk around with it all day.

So, there you have it, our list of things you MUST carry with you on your Puerto Rico vacation. In addition to these, you should also carry a few other things, such as beach bags, sunglasses, mosquito repellant, and so on, to make your trip even more fun and hassle-free.
