What to Take

  • You'll need insect repellent and sunscreen. They're available here, but are fiendishly expensive.
  • Good, light walking shoes and flip-flops.
  • Fins, snorkel and mask.
  • A light day pack.

What to Wear

Casual and beachy is the norm at most places, especially as it's rarely cool enough to demand even long pants or a light extra layer. There are a few establishments that will expect you to dress up for entry, although some top-end bars and restaurants have a basic dress code. TCI is a largely quiet, conservative and Christian country, so outlandish or very revealing clothes will attract attention, if not comment.

Pre-Departure Checklist

  • Check airline baggage restrictions.
