What should I pack when moving to Contadora Island?

Answer this Question

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

"When moving to Contadora Island, it's essential to pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the tropical climate. Include items like shorts, t-shirts, and sundresses, as well as a light jacket or sweater for cooler evenings. Don't forget your swimwear, as the island is known for its beautiful beaches. Pack a good pair of walking shoes or sandals suitable for walking on the beach and exploring the island. Also, include a hat, sunglasses, and plenty of sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. Bring along your necessary toiletries, but keep in mind that many items can be purchased on the island. However, if you have specific brands you prefer, it might be a good idea to bring them with you. Remember to pack any prescription medications you need, along with a copy of your prescription. It's also a good idea to bring a basic first aid kit for minor injuries. If you plan on cooking, consider packing some non-perishable food items, as the selection on the island can be limited and more expensive. Don't forget your important documents, such as your passport, driver's license, and any necessary visas or permits. It's also a good idea to have copies of these documents in case they get lost. Lastly, pack entertainment items like books, games, or a laptop. While the island offers plenty to do, there may be times when you want to relax at home," remarked another expat who made the move to Contadora Island, Panama.
