It’s hard to pick your favorite perk about staying at a beachfront hotel in Playa del Carmen, but immediate beach access tops the list. In just a hop, skip and jump, your happy feet will be surrounded by soft sand as you behold one of the most gorgeous coastlines on the planet.
The better prepared you are beforehand, the longer you can enjoy relaxing, reading, swimming, paddle boarding and snorkeling at the beach! The following tips can help you and your family pack for a day at the beach. And you won’t have to worry about staying comfortable, hydrated or well-fed!
How to Pack Your Beach Bag For a Day at the Beach
The beach bag. Bring a beach bag that can accommodate your essentials.While any canvas or washable tote will do, we recommend mesh bags because they expand to an impressive size. The right bag will hold just about everything you need.
Sun protection. There’s no shortage of sun when you stay in a beachfront hotel, so take proper precautions. Even with a hat, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen (no less than SPF 30), you’ll still have a tan that will impress family, friends and co-workers back home. We also recommend wearing light, breathable cotton clothing (or packing it), so you can cover up when your body has had enough sun, but you haven’t had enough of the beach.
Water and snacks. You’d be amazed by how many calories you can burn and how thirsty you’ll get at the beach. Pack plenty of water and healthy snacks — perhaps some fresh tropical fruit from your enhancement basket or a takeout lunch from a nearby restaurant.
The Extras. Only you know the extras you’ll need in terms of balls, books, snorkeling gear, etc. Use the beach section of this list and customize it for your entire family.
