Large freezer bags come in handy, use as protection for the e-readers on the beach.

Take plenty of your own sun cream as I've heard it's extortionate over in dr. Also I take a strip plug with four or five sockets. Means u can have more than one thing plugged into the same socket at once and only one travel adaptor needed.

You might want to consider the following:

Sunscreen

Single and five dollar bills for tipping

Glade spray

Closed toe shoes for men

Long pants for men

Collared shirts for men

Small first aid kit

Pepto and/or amodium

Photocopy passports and keep separate

Leave the bling at home

Older clothes if you are considering the dune buggies

Enjoy the country and the people

Hats

Sunglasses

Like the other mentioned - lots of sunscreen!

Extra pampers if you have babies

wipes, if you have children, for quick cleanups

I like to take a few of my own towels just in case

flip flops & nice sandals for the nice dinners

dresses are the best for eating out because you can just throw them over your bathing suit - no need to take forever to get ready

I like to bring my own shampoo, body wash, etc.

You can get Nexxus & some other nice brands in the trial sizes

razors for the men & women with shave cream - just in case! (again, you can get these in trial sizes and disposable)

Don't forget that if you don't end up using them you can always leave them for the people at the hotel. I'm sure they'd appreciate it! :)

I would suggest bugspray....we really did use it in the evening. We did not have any issue toward the beach but threre were some bugs at the center of the complex (Gran Bahia) and also noticed them during the show.

Never an issue at the Ambar pool or on the beach.
