First trip to Caribbean

Hi, I've been lurking on here for a couple of months now, doing research for my honeymoon May 16-22. Anyone else going in May? My husband and I are staying at the British Colonial Hilton and have already booked Sandy Toes and Blue Lagoon! So excited!

I'm getting together the last few items that we need for the trip, and I am wondering about safety/security items. Would you all recommend things like waterproof cases for phones and ID/money/room keys? I've looked at a couple of options, like Witz, but I'm not sure what to get. Do we need a hidden travel belt when walking around downtown or Cable Beach? Anything else that are must-bring items?

The Witz cases are a great accessory to bring along. I own the "Keep-It Safe" model. It's 2.7" wide, 4.3" high and 1.3" deep. It's the perfect size for room cards, keys, and some cash!! It sell for around $8 in many sporting good stores or at the Witz web site.


Also, bring sunscreen lotion as it's very expensive down there. Also hats to prevent headburn as the Sun is quite intense in May in the Bahamas.

You don't need a travel belt. Just keep your cash in a secure place on the front of you :-)
