We can’t stress enough how important research is when it comes to planning an island vacation. Sure, you may have done research to find out what island would be the best to visit for your needs, but there’s more to vacationing than simply booking your ticket.
It’s easy to think you won’t need much on an island, but once you’re at your destination you might realize you weren’t exactly prepared. To make sure your vacation goes without a hitch make sure you have your plans ready for your entire stay — from the car rental to any restaurant reservations you may need if you’d like to try out some of the island’s best. Once you know where you’re going, figure out what you’ll need; perhaps the restaurant has a certain dress code, and other places you plan to visit might require a certain attire as well (for instance, covering shoulders, knees, and toes in a church). Here are a few other tips to follow before you leave on your vacation.
