Packing lightly will help your get through Honduras customs much faster. Try to bring light colored, lightweight-cotton clothing to help you stay cool. Remember to bring the basics such as hats or sunglasses, sandals, and your swimsuit, a few necessary items available at the resorts gift shop that you may require are sunscreen, tanning lotions and a variety of mosquito repellent. A small backpack or beach bag would be a good item to have if you plan to take any inland tours. You might also consider a water bottle, binoculars, sturdy walking shoes or lightweight hiking boots and a pair of long pants.

Please inform the hotel upon reserving of any special dietary requirements or allergies to be best prepared to service you during your stay.
