Packing List Page
Your Caribbean Travel Check List
Often, 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!

Friends:

I recently received the following in an e-mail, which I believe you will find interesting...

Hey Jamaica Jim!

My name is David, I'm a young guy from Israel, and I've recently launched a web-project that I've been working on in my spare time during the last few months.

My web project is a travel checklist generator, that can work for any kind of trip/traveler, I've built it for fellow travelers around the world to enjoy, with the sole desire just to contribute to other travelers.

I've found your site after searching "travel checklist" on google - you are ranked #1!

And since google works in a way that gives related site links better rank in relevant searches - I'm contacting you in a request to include a link to my website in your checklist page, I'm sure your visitors will appreciate it as a nice addition to your Caribbean travel check list.

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 this when it is printed out  Just "edit" the entries you want included on your check list, delete those that don't apply, and you're good to go!

High Fives, David!  And, a big tip of "Jamaica Jim's Tilley Hat" to you for you unique contribution to travelers everywhere!
