My Jamaica packing list
Thanks for stopping by our blog, Carnivalista Lifestyle, our blog where we help busy, professional women discover new cultures, attract what they want, love themselves and be comfortable in their own skin. It’s your girl Esha here and today I’m back with a video that I shot back in 2019 about my Jamaica packing list.
In case you’re thinking, “Wait. 2019?” Allow me to explain. I shot this with the the intention of sharing it in early 2020 as promotional video for our Eat, Dance, Travel: Jamaica 2020 trip, but then Coronavirus happened and the world shut down.
And here we are!
Although Jamaica Carnival is not one of our done-for-you travel experiences, we still have others to choose from. Click here to visit our website.
Check out the video and then the packing list is below that. Enjoy!
Here’s what I mentioned in the video (not affiliate links):
- Tilly and the Buttons Stretch book – click here to see it on Amazon
- McCalls M4979 pattern – no longer in print but you can find it on Etsy. I hacked the pattern using the waistband from the Tilly and the Buttons book mentioned above.
- McCalls M7755 romper pattern – no longer in print but you can find it on Amazon
- Sew Hayley Jane fabric subscription box service
- Breaking the pattern book – click here to see it on Amazon
Here’s your Jamaica packing list for a beach vacay:
- Sunscreen – don’t make the mistake of purchasing this when you arrive! It can be quite expensive in the Caribbean.
- Sun hat
- Swim suit
- Beach towel – check with your hotel or rental provider. Most will provide beach towels for you.
- Sunglasses – don’t forget your sunnies to protect your eyes!
- Flip flops and beach shoes – depending on the beach, you might want to purchase beach shoes to protect your feet. They are very inexpensive if you buy them at home and take them with you.
- Beach cover up – an essential so you can walk around the pool or beach to grab your next drink!
- A small amount of cash – if you’re not at a beach on an all-inclusive resort, you might want to bring a small amount of cash with you for drinks, coconot water (yum) and anything else that catches your eye
- Beach bag – make sure it’s packable and lightweight so you don’t add unnecessary weight to your luggage
