Want to take on a camper trip in the Dominican Republic?
Are you planning a campervan trip in the Dominican Republic?
The sunny paradise that is the country may be different from what you are used to. The high temperatures, the extroverted culture and the diversity of landscapes, from beaches to cities, mountains and rivers. This can make it difficult to pack the right gear. To make sure you pack a suitcase full of the right things, we’ve put together a quick guide of what to bring.
Lightweight, breathable clothing
The Dominican Republic has warm temperatures year-round, so it’s important that you bring breathable clothing. Also, be sure to bring light clothing as it saves a lot of space. Think cool t-shirts, dresses, skirts, blouses, etc. But don’t forget to bring a hoodie or cardigan at night to be comfortable.
Sneakers, water shoes and flip-flops
If you come it is advisable to bring different types of footwear. Flip-flops are fine for going to the beach, but if you plan to hike, sneakers or walking shoes are a must, and water shoes can come in handy if you’re visiting a waterfall or doing water sports.
Sunglasses, a hat, beach bag and shoulder bag will make camping easier.
Sunscreen and after-sun lotion
Keep in mind that the sun can be very strong. It is very important to bring sunscreen, especially if your skin is not used to the sun. Also, don’t forget to bring your sun lotion to take care of your skin after a long day in the sun.
There may be mosquitoes in some places on the island. Normally, in the rainy season, mosquitoes may bite at night. To avoid this, apply mosquito repellent before the sun goes down.
Carry soft luggage bags. They fit better in luggage components, save space and are less likely to damage the camper.
Books, games and toys, for example, are the best allies. Especially if you are traveling with children. The journeys to the next destination can take several hours. So equipping your children with entertainment will keep both you and the kids happy.
Chargers and spare batteries
In most situations, your motorhome or camper van can be plugged into power outlets at RV campgrounds and campgrounds. But if you want to get off the beaten path, it’s useful to carry some spare batteries and power banks.
