By planning an all-inclusive Caribbean vacation, you are saying yes to savouring a specially prepared slice of the Caribbean. All-inclusive resorts have everything that you will need for your stay. Your meals, activities, room service and so much more are included in your accommodation package. However, there are a few items that you can add to your travel checklist which will make your stay in the Caribbean ever more comfortable. Although you are on vacation, and looking to relax, consider packing the following technology, beauty and skin, lifestyle and clothing items.



When travelling to the Caribbean, there are a few technology items that you should not leave home without. At the top of the list are a tablet, earphones, waterproof Bluetooth speaker, travel adapter and a power bank.

Tablet: Apple 10.2-inch iPad

The worst thing that can happen when you’re on vacation is wishing that you had packed an item. The items on this list are often overlooked when people go on vacation. But this is a gentle reminder to pack a water bottle, re-suable straws, hand sanitizer, a travel umbrella, and a beach bag.

Water Bottle: Iron Flask Sports Water Bottle

Although your all-inclusive resort will provide water, you should take your water bottle with you. It will come in handy if you are going on a destination tour or taking a jog around the resort. An excellent option is the 14 oz. Iron Flash Sports Water Bottle.

Umbrella: Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella

Beach Wear: Billabong

Inflatable Pillow: Aeros Ultralight Pillow

A good inflatable pillow will not let you down. If you can find a sturdy pillow like the Aeros Ultralight Pillow, then you are set. Do not worry about this pillow taking up space in your bag. If you choose to pack it away when travelling, it can be easily deflated when not in use.

Towel Clips

Yes, towel clips for beach chairs. You will never truly understand the value of towel clips until you are at the beach, lounging on a beach chair and endured a battle with the wind. Beach clips are so versatile, they can be used to hang other heavy items like blankets and wet beach clothes.
