Don’t Forget To Pack Biodegradable Sunscreen

When I hear a mosquito buzzing near my ear right before sleep.You are coming to the beach so pack light! Flip-flops during the day and a pair of wedge sandals for a nice dinner out (stilettos = twisted ankles on cobblestone streets). You’ll feel most comfortable in loose, breathable clothing. Pack a couple of swimsuits and a sarong, which doubles as a beach blanket. In the cooler months from December to February, a light sweater for the evenings comes in handy. The majority of restaurants in Playa del Carmen have a casual dress code, but at some more elegant eateries, men are required to wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.
Don’t forget to pack biodegradable sunscreen. All sunscreens are luxury items here and are very expensive – some costing $500 pesos or almost $30 USD in the resort gift shops! Many of the parks in the area prohibit sunscreen that is not eco-friendly.
Another product we like to have around come dusk here in Playa del Carmen is Johnson’s Baby Creamy Oil with Aloe and Vitamin E. It works wonders as a mosquito repellent!
In the beach bag, old sheet and pillowcase packages (the plastic ones with zippers) are perfect for packing your sunscreen. We also throw in a wide paintbrush to dust the sand off our legs and feet after a day at the beach.
