7 Things Every Woman NEEDS To Pack For A Vacation In Punta Cana

January 5, 2018 by Kiarra Lyles
shefinds | Fashion

Ever since yesterday’s “Bomb Cyclone,” which brought 70mph winds, freezing temperatures, and over a foot of snow to the Northeast, we’ve been daydreaming of escaping to the Caribbean for a tropical getaway. In fact, many travelers strategically plan their tropical vacations during the winter, trading in the frigid, cold weather for warm breezes, palm trees, and turquoise blue water.

According to Business Insider, the Dominican Republic ranks #2 in the 25 best Carribean islands–and it’s not hard to see why! The island is beautiful, boasting gorgeous beaches, delicious food, amazing music, and a rich, vibrant culture. Punta Cana is one of the best resort towns in the Dominican Republic and it’s also really affordable, too! “Many travelers are able to book a weeklong trip that includes airfare, lodging, meals and some resort activities, for much less than $1,000 per person in the shoulder seasons,” U.S. News & World Report reports.

If you are planning a trip to Punta Cana soon, here’s what you want you’ll want to pack:

1. A Flowy Sun Dress

ASOS Tropical Print Strappy Back Midi Dress ($20)

According to U.S. News & World Report, the average temperature in Punta Cana is around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, so you will want to dress accordingly. A flowy dress, whether it be a mini, midi or maxi, will keep you looking stylish and feeling comfortable while touring. Plus, it makes for an excellent option if you’ll be having a night on the town while you’re there.


2. A Fedora

J-Crew Wide-Brim Straw Hat ($55)

A fedora is key while on a tropical vacation to keep the sun out your eyes and keep you from getting sunburned. A classic fedora tops off almost any outfit, whether you’re wearing a dress or shorts and a t-shirt.


3. A Statement One-Piece

Aerie Cross-Front One Piece Swimsuit ($34.96)

Bikinis are great but the one-piece, or monokini, has really been on trend recently. Make a statement poolside or at the beach for with a stylish cut-out or halter one-piece bathing suit.


4. A Multi-Purpose Sarong

Dotti Pareo Sarong Cover-Up ($24)

A sarong is key for any tropical getaway! They can be used as a beach cover-up, can be transformed into various dress styles, or worn as a head wrap.


5. A Casual Pair Of Sandals

Steve Madden Miley Wedge Sandal ($49.99) 

One of the biggest packing mistakes is packing too many shoes. Go from day to night, beach or town, in a pair of sandals that are both stylish and comfortable.


6. A Beach Bag

Merona Tote Handbag ($29.99) 

This might be one of the most important items to remember to bring on a tropical vacation. Punta Cana is filled with resorts with private beach access, so you’ll want to make sure to bring a beach bag large enough to hold the essentials like sunscreen, towels, a cover-up, and sunglasses.


7. Wide-Leg Pants

Charlotte Russe Lace-Up Gauze Palazzo Pants ($11.99) 

Wide-leg pants, palazzo pants, linen pants–or whatever you call them–just make sure you bring a pair! These loose-fitting pants will keep you cool and comfortable and can be worn with almost everything!
