Accessories, Necessities, and Garments: What to Pack for Loreto

One day you’re going to wake up and discover you’re on your way to Loreto and wonder what to pack for the trip. The first thing that will come to mind is how to evoke the spirit a dream Mexican vacation through wardrobe. Brainstorming looks and browsing online stores cover-ups, and sun dresses fills up your spare time leading up to the trip.  Today I am going to provide suggestions on what to pack for Loreto Mexico which will include accessories, necessities, and garments. 

During a recent vacation I made the trip to Mexico and stayed at the Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto resort. This trip marked my second experience with the property so I had an idea of what I needed which saved on overweight baggage fees.  During 4 day trips I typically pack 2-3 swim suites.  Since Loreto has the perfect balance of land and sea activities I suggest packing multifunctional pieces.  When shopping for bathing suits or 2- piece sets I go for items that I can wear with one of my many maxi skirts, under a maxi dress, or with shorts.  On one excursion hosted by Villa del Palmar, we went from a boat ride to an island, and concluded with shopping trip in town.  It was very convenient to slip on a vibrant maxi skirt over my houndstooth bathing suit and become a part of the colorful canvas which is the town of Loreto Mexico.

Packing solid color dresses that can be dressed up with accessories such as anchor chains, bracelets, chandelier earrings, and bangles.  I particularly like the long flowy cotton/ spandex maxi dresses sold at Old Navy.  The brand sells these dresses year-round and comes out with their new models at the first of the year.  Since I travels o frequently, I tend to stock up once a year in preparation for my unknown adventures at that tend to take place later on in the year.  Lastly, if you are like me and take advantage of hotel gyms then I would suggest packing workout clothing and sneakers for small hikes.
Warm days lead to cool nights so I recommend bring a light sweater and/or windbreaker.  I typically create a travelers first aid kit which includes quick fixes for minor vacation related challenges. 

Things such as sunblock, Aloe Vera gel for burn, Neosporin for bites, Cortizone for rashes, baby wipes, Band-Aids, Advil, tide stick, and alcohol pads.  Additionally, I packed a late tote for shopping and 2 large, 2 small Ziploc bags for wet swim suits, seashells, and other items that need to be separated from your clothing. 

During my time at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto I spent a lot of time taking pictures of the scenic views around the property and beyond.  The sleepy tourist town just beyond the resort required little fuss as far as styling goes.  Everyone appeared to have transitioned from the beach to the market and back.  Regardless of what you pack I suggest spending more time relaxing than anything else.  There is no dress code for a stress free vacation.
