There are three reasons to pack carefully for your trip to Playa del Carmen — to look great, feel great and conserve luggage space. Fortunately, most clothes you’ll need have a “less is more” attitude: shorts, tank tops, swimsuits, flip-flops and sexy sun dresses. However, based on the activities you’re interested in, you may want to bring a few extra items as well.
Here’s advice on what to bring. Remember to use key pieces in several outfit combinations, so you don’t bring more than you need. Just think, if you get it all into a single carry-on, there are no extra airline fees, no worries about lost luggage and your vacation begins the instant you deboard the plane!
During the day. It’s all about cool, casual and comfortable. Most people wear shorts, tank tops or short-sleeved shirts and comfortable shoes while they walk around the main streets. This is the time to take advantage of nearby excursions.
For Adventures: If you’re exploring Ancient Mayan sites or bird watching in the jungle, wear socks and comfortable hiking shoes to protect your feet. Bring a hat as the sunshine is potent, even during the rainy season.
Speaking of the rainy season, which is June through November, pack a small umbrella to protect yourself from sudden afternoon rain bursts.
On the beach. From bikinis to one-piece swim suits and swimming trunks, you’ll see it all here in Playa del Carmen. Pack whatever beachwear makes you comfortable, and remember that the same sarong you use by day can be fashioned into a halter dress by night. Don’t forget a hat, sunglasses and coverup for sun protection.
At night. Have at least one dressy outfit for any upscale restaurants and clubs you’ll visit at night. Have a jacket on hand as nights can be cool.
