visitors to the Caribbean are uncertain as to exactly what they should
take along with them to their tropical vacation destination. Most
seasoned travelers to the islands heartily recommend that a person pack
anything and everything that they think they might possibly need -- and
then take half of the items out of their luggage and leave those at home!
This is usually sound advice, in that the climate during much of the year
it is hot and humid, and many of the items that would be needed elsewhere,
aren't necessary on the islands.
Below is a check list that you can use to remind yourself what you may want to take, not necessarily what you will need. You can print out this page and use it to check off the items as you pack them in your luggage.
You also might try doing what I have found works well for me. As you think of something that you want to take along with you on your trip get it right then and put it somewhere with all the other items you plan to pack. (I use the bed in our guest bedroom as a place to assemble everything I plan to take with me.) Continue gathering things as you think of them. Once you are confident that you have everything set aside, check all the items against the list below.
Then, you are ready to pack your bags! Good luck!

I recently received the following in an e-mail, which I believe you will find interesting...
Hey Jamaica Jim!
|I accessed David's site
and I was impressed! He has created something that's easy to use,
can be saved for your use later and can be easily printed out to have a
hard copy to use in checking off items as they are packed. Nice!
I suggest that you go to
David's site yourself and try it out. One caveat, don't "check" the
boxes on line ... that will cause the entry to have a strikethrough, like
High Fives, David! And, a big tip of "Jamaica Jim's Tilley Hat" to you for you unique contribution to travelers everywhere!
