Packing Checklist

We’re avid travelers and always rely on packing checklists to make sure we don’t forget anything when we travel. If you like to travel light, we have laundry services available and you’ll probably be spending most of your time in a swimming suit anyway while you’re here.

We provide snorkeling masks at the resort, but recently purchased one of these full-face masks while we were in the States, and every guest we’ve lent it to has loved it! But please note that if you like to free dive, regular snorkel masks are best.
