What to pack for Isla Contoy?
As the most important part of our Isla Contoy Travel Guide, a hat and sunglasses are more than helpful. Many tourists dream of the perfect tan, however it is important that you take care of your skin. Just walking along the coast can cause sunburn, so we recommend skin protection.
Carry cash with you, especially pesos are always useful. You don’t want to bring too much, but keep in mind that it’s easier to tip or buy souvenirs this way. In general, just in case of emergency, it is always good to carry some weights with you, just remember to keep them safe.
As if we had to remind you, don’t forget your swimsuit and a wetsuit, sandals or water shoes. A change of light clothes is always useful. Bringing your own towel and a few snacks can be a lifesaver, especially when traveling with kids.
Biodegradable reef-safe sunscreen and mosquito repellent they are essential. The government and locals are very serious about preserving their environment. Regular sunscreen and bug repellant seem to have too many chemicals that harm the reef in the long term. Showering before entering the water is recommended to remove any residue. We understand that a shower isn’t always available, so keep that in mind and be extra careful when buying biodegradable sunscreen.
