September is a great time of the year to visit the Caribbean. You can enjoy your vacation with the warmth of the tropical sun shining over countless sandy beaches. Keep reading if you want to learn about the hottest holiday getaways and the best, and safest, path to a quick tan!
What is the hottest place to visit this September?
Although the Caribbean is full of wonderful tropical destinations, one, in particular, stands out among the rest, namely, the Dominican Republic. Sosua, a little town located on the north coast of the island, is home to some of the most beautiful beaches we have come across. The tranquil sound of the ocean is the perfect complement to your mojito on the beach. If you’re looking to escape the winter this September, make sure Sosua is on your list.
Should I use sunscreen to tan? and if so, what is SPF?
Anyone absorbing the Dominican sun rays at noon should most definitely use skin protection. 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
- Your coolest hat
- Some cash, since not all locations accept credit cards
What kind of people will you encounter on a tropical island?
Sosua, in the Dominican Republic, offers a huge variety of different types people. For one, you have the locals: friendly, warm-blooded, and generous. Don’t be shy and strike up a conversation at the grocery shop counter. Dominicans are very social and charismatic. Then you have the foreigners: adventurous, sporty, and diverse. Many foreigners from all over the world live there because of the great surfing and kite-surfing conditions. You will find people speaking all types of languages.
