Preparing for your trip
When preparing for your trip, it is important you bring the essentials. Consider packing comfortable clothes and shoes, sunscreen, bug spray (if you plan to be outdoors), more than one bathing suit, and a evening outfit if you plan to have a night on the town. It is advised that you do no bring expensive jewelry, food or water. "It's been asked, "Should we pack water?" The answer, "No!" Water is plentiful, and chances are, your hotel has a purified water system. If not, they provide bottles of water. Otherwise, you can buy bottles of water just about everywhere for 1/10th of what a bottle of Evian costs at home. For Evian lovers, it's available here too, just a little more expensive than nationally bottled water."
