The Packing List: Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena, Colombia is a gem of a place situated on the Caribbean coast! It will surely delight you but making sure you pack just the right items will make the trip even more enjoyable! No matter what time of year you’re going, be sure to pack lightweight dresses, comfortable sandals, sun protection products like hats and sunscreen, a bathing suit, shorts, and a jean jacket for the evenings! While there are beaches there, you may not be spending everyday there so be sure to pack a variety of items that would work for both the boat / beach and walking around town. In today’s post, I’m highlighting some of the items I packed and / or think would be a great option!

What I think is great about this group of products is that they would really be perfect for anyone heading to a warm weather destination! So, if you are headed to the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Brazil, the Bahamas, Miami, etc., be sure to give it a look!
