Packing for the Dominican Republic

For me, packing for vacation is easy.  I’ve been lucky to go so many times over the years that I can be ready to go within an hour.  Here I hope is a guide for what you need to pack when going to an all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic.

Gentlemen – bring one pair of pants, two pairs of shorts and a few collared shirts (polos or button-ups).  3 – 4 bathing suits and t-shirts or tanks.  Sneakers, one pair of dress shoes and some kind of beach shoes.

Ladies – bring 3 – 4 bathing suits and cover-ups, 3 – 4 sundresses, 2 pairs of shorts or capris, a few tops.  Sneakers, flip flops and one pair of sandals.
