Windspree Vacation Homes St John USVI

Pack for Your Caribbean Vacation

So you’ve rented out a gorgeous and private Virgin Island villa from Windspree Vacation Homes, booked your flight, rented a car, and mapped out your plans for your St. John vacation. Now all that’s left to do is pack. Packing for your vacation incorrectly or insufficiently can make or break your vacation, so let the helpful staff from Windspree take it from here with some helpful advice:

  • Travel documents: This is one of the most important things to remember! Be sure to have all of your travel documents such as passports, other identification, and airline tickets organized and in one place before you leave for your vacation. You may be able to buy flip flops or a camera if you forget yours, but you won’t be able to buy a new passport if you forget it -- and while U.S. citizens do not need a passport to travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands, a very popular activity is to take a day boat trip to the neighboring British Virgin Islands, just a few miles across the channel.
  • Weather appropriate clothing: Although it’s more than likely that you’ll have nothing but good weather and sunshine during your stay in the Caribbean, be sure to check the forecast to stay ahead of any oncoming storms or lower temperatures. Bring a cool weather outfit like jeans and a sweater to supplement your shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, sun dresses, and flip flops. The cool tradewinds make the evenings perfect for a layer, as does boating on the open water.
  • Proper sun protection: You’ll be spending the majority of your vacation having fun in the sun, so be sure to bring SPF lotions and lip balm, sunglasses, sarongs, scarves, and a hat to protect you from UV rays.
  • Beach accessories: Pack a collapsible beach bag, your iPod, a good book, and a camera to document your incredible Caribbean vacation.
