Packing light for hot destinations can be hard. Rather than over pack, follow my tips on how to pack light for your next getaway. I've become a pro over the years.
Fabric is key when packing for warm climates. Think 100% cotton, bamboo fibers or fabric that offers SPF. These fabrics are breathable so heat can escape the body.
Pack only one pair of pants or shorts that you can coordinate 2 or 3 tops with.
Pack only 3 shoes. Sneakers for working out or exploring, flip flops and a dressier sandal. Trust me, no need to bring 10 pairs of shoes.
Pack dresses. Dresses are the perfect piece of clothing for warm weather. You just throw on and go. Make sure one of the dresses you pack can be used as a beach cover up as well.
Packing cubes. I never pack without them. The packing cubes divide your clothing to keep everything organized and neat. I purchased mine on amazon. My favorite brand is Yeken.
Only pack 2 bathing suits. You don't need more than that.
The easiest way to pack light is to take enough clothing to last half of your trip. You can always wash your clothes at a local laundry service or in a sink.
I never leave home without the following; My reusable bag. They come in handy for shopping or used as a laundry bag. My bamboo shawl. It's perfect for cooler evenings and dresses up any outfit. A hat (make sure it's collapsible) and lastly a casual light weight sweater.
BONUS TIP: Roll your clothing (Don't fold) when packing. It offers you almost double the space in your suitcase.
Before I travel, I make copies of all credit cards, drivers license and passports just in case they go missing during travel.
I hope the above tips HELP you on your next adventure.
