Properly Packing for Your Puerto Vallarta Vacations

LIFESTYLE | Published on 14/07/2018

Whether you’re a world traveler or a first-time guest to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, it’s important to use a travel checklist to make sure you have all the essential items in your suitcase before boarding the plane. Puerto Vallarta vacations are unique to different travelers. Some travel for destination weddings, some for memorable family vacations, some to explore the various natural and cultural wonders of the world, and others for a variety of unique reasons. No matter what brings you to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the magic and hospitality at Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta will make you want to stay. Use these tips for travelers to ensure your suitcase is properly packed and you’ve come prepared to enjoy the beauty of Mexico.

Before packing, choose an ideal suitcase for vacation. If you’re coming down for five days or less, a good option is to just pack a carry-on bag with room for the essential items in your suitcase. By opting not to check a bag, you can skip baggage claim and have less to carry. You’ll even save money as most major airlines now charge a checked bag fee. Choosing the ideal suitcase for vacation also means making sure you have enough room for all the items you’ll pick up during your stay. Larger suitcases are better for Puerto Vallarta vacations that last a week or more because they hold all that you need and provide extra room for souvenirs. 

The ideal suitcase for vacation is one with a hard shell. This will hold up better when being handled at the airport and protects your valuables as you travel to Puerto Vallarta. Another of the best tips for travelers suggests choosing a brightly colored bag, which makes it easy to spot at baggage claim. Before flying, you should also make sure your bag has your name, phone number, and email address on it so if it ever gets lost in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico or in any of the other destinations along the way, it can easily be returned to you. For those who plan to travel to Puerto Vallarta, including the name of the resort where you are staying, such as Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta, is also a great way to ensure your bag gets where it needs to go in case it is misplaced or accidentally picked up by other travelers. With the resorts name, you’ll be easier to locate while your away. 

Travel tips also address how to properly pack your bag so that your belongings are protected and arrive the way you want them. Rolling clothes instead of folding them can save room and mean fewer wrinkles when you arrive at your destination in Mexico. Other smart travel tips include putting a piece of plastic wrap underneath the lids of certain beauty products to help prevent leaks or to place them inside a tightly sealed ziplock bag so that in the event they open during travel, they don’t soak your clothes in hard to wash out oils, sunscreens, or make-up. For women, putting a straw on a necklace chain keeps it from tangling in your bag, while some packing tips also advise using smaller travel bags to organize toiletries or shoes.

To plan what clothes to pack, a travel checklist makes sure you have a variety of options without overpacking. Create a list of what outfits you’ll need and what outfits you can rewear, especially if you plan on spending most of the day in a swimsuit. Match the amount of clothes you bring with the number of days you’ll be in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Remember, laundry services at Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta are always available, which means you can bring only your favorites and save room for the countless items you’ll want to purchase during your Puerto Vallarta vacations. 

When you travel to Puerto Vallarta, pack lightweight clothes to stay cool in the heat. Depending on what Puerto Vallarta activities you want to try, bring clothes that can get muddy when you go ATVing or zip lining in the jungle. One of the most popular tips for travelers is to bring at least one pair of comfortable walking shoes to spend the day exploring the city or the mountains before returning to Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta and one pair of sandals for dining at the resort.

On your travel checklist, make sure to include a book for relaxing in the sun. Sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen to protect your skin and eyes under the Mexican sun, in addition to a bathing suit that will make you feel spectacular on your Puerto Vallarta vacations. One of the most helpful packing tips is to make sure items you want during travel, like sunglasses, are packed where you can easily access them, but where they won’t get broken. Make sure your travel checklist also includes the everyday items you could easily forget, such as chargers, toothbrushes, razors, and socks. If you take medications, pack them in their proper packaging with labels, and of course, don’t leave home without your passport securely stowed in an easy to access pocket.

Having the essential items in your suitcase means you’ll be able to enjoy your vacations as you travel to Puerto Vallarta. Using these travel tips will help you feel more prepared even if you’ve been to the stunning destination in Mexico before. If you forget something, the staff at Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta is always around to help make sure you have everything you need to enjoy the adventures Puerto Vallarta has to offer, keeping your Mexico vacations relaxing and worry free.
