What should I pack when moving to Coban?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Coban to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Coban, it's important to pack clothing suitable for a tropical climate, including lightweight, breathable fabrics, rain gear, and sturdy footwear for outdoor activities. Don't forget your swimsuit for the beautiful waterfalls and hot springs. Pack a good quality sunscreen, insect repellent, and any necessary prescription medications. It's also recommended to bring a Spanish-English dictionary or phrasebook, as English is not widely spoken. A reliable water bottle is essential, as tap water is not safe to drink. Pack your important documents such as passport, visa, driver's license, and any necessary medical records. If you plan on driving, an international driving permit might be necessary. Electronics like your smartphone, laptop, or tablet can be useful, but remember to bring appropriate chargers and adapters for the different electrical outlets. If you're planning on cooking, you might want to bring some of your favorite spices or food items that may not be available locally. Lastly, bring personal items that will make your new place feel like home, such as photos, favorite books, or small decor items," explained one expat living in Coban, Guatemala.
