Stylish Mama's Tropical Vacation Packing List

Updated: Mar 18, 2019

I am looking forward to our upcoming trip to the US Virgin Islands (St. Thomas), Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Grand Turk, but packing for a vacation seems the most difficult aspect of the whole thing.

I have googled multiple packing lists but never found one complete, yet concise enough to help me get organised for a 1-2 week long tropical vacation, so I made one! This works whether you are getting away from the kids or taking them along. It has just enough for multiple outfits each day but not over pack. Everything fits in one checked suitcase. You are on vacation with lots to do and no time for laundry. If you have a toddler with you, it will get messy and you will need to change clothes. If no kids, even better, enjoy wearing multiple outfits for all the stops on your itinerary. I wear items from this list for the trip to my destination. This makes my suitcase a little lighter.

Hope you find this helpful. Happy packing!

6 swimsuits 5 Swim cover ups (I suggest a pair of stylish sheer or linen pants, a kaftan style, a kimono style, 2 scarves) Jean shorts (You can pair them with t-shirt for day wear or wear with your bathing suit)
