What To Expect When You Travel: 3 Tips For Travelling To Punta Cana

Punta Cana is a dreamy place. It’s the favorite destination of many couples who are looking to spend their holidays enjoying intimacy, escape, and leisure in a paradisiacal environment.

Although it seems like you wouldn’t need very much luggage in an environment like this, we recommend that you organize certain preparations and include specific items in your suitcase in order to make your holidays extraordinary.

Let’s look at what you should keep in mind when organizing a trip to Punta Cana.


A destination like Punta Cana speaks for itself when it comes to choosing the clothing you should bring. In this regard, it’s recommended that in addition to bathing suits, in your suitcase you should include lightweight and comfortable clothes to wear during the day on the beach. Cotton fabric is the best as it is fresh and dries quickly.

Although most of your time will be spent on the beach, night time in Punta Cana is one of the most exclusive and intimate moments to enjoy with your partner. Don’t forget to bring different cocktail-hour outfits for the hotel’s events at night. It’s important to also have light jackets or scarves with you since the temperatures can drop slightly at night.

Keep a bit of space in your suitcase for sportswear if you plan on doing excursions or using the gym or other sports facilities offered by most hotels in Punta Cana, such as Lopesan Costa Bávaro.


There are a number of necessary items that you can’t leave out of your suitcase in order to fully enjoy your experience in Punta Cana.

Given that the main attraction in the area is paradisiacal beaches, one of the essentials that shouldn’t be missing in your suitcase is sunscreen. Sun exposure will be prolonged both while you’re on the sand when sunbathing or walking around, as well as when you’re in the ocean-going for a swim. Therefore, it’s important to wear high protection sunscreen, even if it seems like the sun isn’t burning your skin because of the cool breeze.

Those who love to read will also have to bring a book, to which you can add games or anything else that inspires you to disconnect and enjoy your partner and the environment. In this regard, you don’t need to bring materials for aquatic activities such as snorkeling, diving, etc. Most hotels and resorts offer this service and you will also find numerous places to buy and rent them in the area.

Finally, for your holidays in Punta Cana, it’s important to bring a medical kit. Although you will be traveling with medical insurance, small setbacks may arise and with this basic kit, you can avoid long waits at the doctor or having to find pharmacies that are on duty at night. In addition to the normal recommendations of paracetamol, ibuprofen, analgesics, and anti-inflammatory medications, it’s important to add a mosquito repellent to your list. Due to the humid climate in the area, mosquitos are prevalent, especially at dawn and dusk, and having some repellent on you will allow you to fully immerse yourself in the moment without any worries.
