Water Activities – Since the Yucatan is conveniently located on Mexico’s beautiful Caribbean coast, you can imagine the abundance of water activities offered. Whether you go snorkeling, sport fishing, kayaking, jet-skiing, scuba diving, or whale watching, it’s important to dress comfortably. You’ll want to wear a comfortable swimsuit, flip-flops or sandals, light-weight shorts, and a t-shirt, sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen. Bringing along a travel towel, water bottle, and beach bag would also be a good idea.
Exploring the Town – Merida is one of many stunning colonial towns that can be found in the Yucatan. Since you won’t be right on the beach you’ll likely be missing some of the refreshing sea breezes so make sure to dress light. Ladies, this would be a great time to wear your favorite, airy dress or skirt. Shorts and a t-shirt are also comfortable options and the more might-weight the better. Many might find the cobblestone streets to be slightly annoying to walk on in sandals so a pair of walking shoes might be a good idea. Stay protected from the sun with sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses.
Jungle Adventures – There are plenty of exciting excursions to go on in the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula such as cenote swimming and wildlife spotting. Longer clothes or bug spray will be essential to keeping mosquitoes away. A sturdy pair of walking shoes will help you explore more comfortably. In the case that you plan to visit a waterfall or cenote don’t forget to bring a swimsuit and a travel towel.
