Dominican Republic – What to Pack

Many have said that in the Dominican Republic you will find an earthly heaven. For those who will visit the Dominican Republic from cold areas, you must leave your jackets at home, cause all year around the weather is sunny, you will be enchanted by the dazzling white beaches, the sunsets, and the sounds of merengue and bachata. If you visit the Dominican Republic with your loved ones get ready for a dance, a hug, get ready to fall for your person again because cause passion, sensation and vivid emotions are what characterise this magical place.

If you want quiet and relax you should visit the villages where you will find peace, silence and really friendly villagers. However, in my opinion it  will be a pity  not to discover  the interior of the country and  the magical landscapes. You will find the local happy to help you and if you’re lucky they can host you.

We should talk about the luggage now. What to put in your luggage ?

You should take light clothes of cotton, open shoes, shorts, shirts, t-shirts …Attention… do not forget your swimsuit, as well as warm clothes and hiking boots for some walking in the mountains. You will enjoy the hiking (believe me), you will forget everything else. A sweater would be comfortable in the mountains … both in the bus or in the restaurants where sometimes there is too much air conditioning. Dominicans love to dress up to go out,so  don’t  forget to take  some nice clothes to wear at  night.

For those you will come with their family and children, do not forget your hats and sunglasses, not to mention high index sunscreens. Do not trust the breeze or the clouds, that the UV rays of the tropical sun pass through easily. Better bring your own hygiene products ( baby diapers ). Finally, a good flashlight could come in very handy if the power fails, or in public places with insufficient lighting.
