"Pack light" Puerto Vallarta Packing List Tip by donforse

Puerto Vallarta What to Pack: 18 reviews and 11 photos

Luggage and bags: Bring a backpack! Puerto Vallarta has lots of outdoor activities and you will need sunblock, insect repellent, cameras, towels, etc. Much easier if you have a small backback or handbag.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sandals for the beach, also comfortable shoes for activities that involve walking/hiking.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Insect repellent is a must. Also lots of sunblock and aloe.

Miscellaneous: If you go in the summer, like we did, don't pack anything with sleeves or any long pants. Most of the time will be spent wearing only shorts or a bathing suit due to the opressive heat.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
