What should I pack when moving to Puerto Cortes?

Answer this Question

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

"When moving to Puerto Cortes, it's important to pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the tropical climate. Include a variety of short-sleeved shirts, shorts, and lightweight pants. Don't forget to pack a good amount of swimwear as the city is known for its beautiful beaches. Also, pack a sturdy pair of sandals for the beach and comfortable walking shoes for exploring the city. A hat, sunglasses, and a high SPF sunscreen are essential to protect yourself from the intense sun. In terms of toiletries, it's advisable to bring any specific brands you prefer, as they may not be available locally. This includes items like shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, and any prescription medications you may need. Pack a basic first aid kit with band-aids, antiseptic wipes, and over-the-counter medication for common ailments like headaches and stomach issues. Bring along your important documents such as passport, driver's license, and any necessary visas or work permits. It's also a good idea to have copies of these documents in case of loss or theft. If you plan on cooking, consider packing some of your favorite spices or condiments, as they may be hard to find in Honduras. Don't forget to pack your electronics like your phone, laptop, and their chargers. An international power adapter might also be necessary. Lastly, pack some entertainment items like books, a deck of cards, or portable games to keep you occupied during downtime," wrote a member who made the move to Puerto Cortes, Honduras.
