What to Wear
Basically, anything you want. Montserrat is super casual and there's no need to dress up – ever. Skip skimpy threads away from the beach, though.
A good thin waterproof jacket that you can easily slip over your clothes then pack away again is useful for the tropical downpours.
- Make sure your passport is valid for at least six months past your arrival date
- Check the airline baggage restrictions
- Inform your debit-/credit-card company of where you'll be traveling
- Arrange for travel insurance
