What to have in mind before going to the Caribbean (Colombia)

Posted by SeaAdviser on November 22, 2019

We all dream or have ever dreamed on going to the warm and idyllic Caribbean to enjoy of the sun, the beach, the sand, the great weather that this part of the world has almost all year-round, whether it is vacations, honey moon, with friends or a solo-trip, it does not matter how much time you are thinking of spending there.

In order for you to enjoy it and make the most out of it, I am going to give you 7 advises you have to have in mind, or well in your suit case before you flight over there. Let’s get started:

First of all, it is very important to pack your sunblock, it is definitely something you can not forget, the Caribbean weather is very, very sunny and you could get burned if you expose yourself under the sun without protection. The Caribbean is a perfect place to get tan, nevertheless you need to use an appropriated sun-block, not every sun-block in the market is good for you, it depends on your PH, you need to get the one that fits best for you, and it all comes down to your skin’s PH.

Hot and wet are the best two words to describe Caribbean’s weather, to make sure you enjoy its weather and sunny days at its best, I strongly recommend you to take comfortable clothe, take your shorts, t-shirts, tanks, short-sleeves shirts, sandals, open shoes and anything like that, it does not necessarily mean you have to use it all day long, but if you can, it is ok, and people normally do so. However, if you desire to change your look (some times you will have to) to go out party, dinner at a fancy restaurant, you could take your guayabera and light pants for the evening.

Summer is humid, that mean that it is a season in which people tend to drink more water than usual due to higher temperatures. The Caribbean is just like that, but worse, I don’t intend to scare you, but that’s the true, so, one of the best things you could do, is to take a bottle of water and keep it all day with you, you will need it, you will sweat a lot and you will tend to dehydrate.

For your next vacations in the Caribbean, you would need to take your sun glasses, sun is very shiny in the Caribbean and you would like to be able to walk all over around without being bothered by the sun lights on your face and eyes.

Last but not least, you would need to take a hat or cap, it is recommendable to protect your face from the sun lights, since they tend to be dangerous for the skin, and our skin face is a very sensitive one. A good hat or cap should help you be covered and protected while your trip.
