    Beach Clothes and accessories

    If you plan on walking on the beach, there are some areas that may have rocks or build-up of turtle grass.
  • Swimming Suit
  • Swimming Trunk
  • Goggles
  • Snorkel, Fins and Mask
    Mayan Beach Garden has snorkeling equipment for rent, but if you are not an average size, or to assure the best fit, you may want to bring your own
  • Diving equipment
  • Lycra wet suit
    We recommend light-weight wetsuits for snorkeling, not because the water is cool, but because you can get severely sunburned snorkeling all day! It's the best protection.
  • Beach Towel(we gave small lightweight ones)


First Aid, Hygiene Supplies and Sundries

  • Mild pain-killers such as Ibuprofen or aspirin
  • Prescriptions
  • Band aids
  • Anti-bacterial cream
  • Antacid
  • Pepto-bismal

  • Razor
  • Comb

  • Small amount of toilet paper
    This may seem odd, but many public toilets in Mexico do not supply toilet paper. Mexicans are used to this and bring their own. It's always a good idea to come prepared with a small amount to use as you travel around.
