Should I use sunscreen to tan? and if so, what is SPF?

Since the island is located near the equator, there is a high chance of careless “taners” ending up with damaged skin. We recommend choosing your sunscreen’s SPF depending on how long you plan on staying in the sun. As a rule of thumb, 1 SPF = 1 minute of sun before needing to re-apply cream.

What should I pack for my Caribbean vacation?

Apart from sunscreen, there are a few other items we consider essential for anyone traveling to the Caribbean this September:

  • Your most colorful bathing suite
  • Some sandals
  • Mosquito spray
  • Body lotion
  • A good book for the beach
  • Your camera, so the memories last forever
  • Sunglasses
  • Your coolest hat
  • Some cash, since not all locations accept credit cards

Sosua, in the Dominican Republic, offers a huge variety of different types people. For one, you have the locals: friendly, warm-blooded, and generous.
