6. Clothes shopping
Planning your trip ahead of time means also having a general idea of what your wardrobe will be. While you may think that all you need are shorts and t-shirts, there are some other essential items you’ll need. Depending on the time of year you visit, you’ll want to also pack a rain jacket or poncho, a cardigan or maybe even a sweater/light jacket! I would also recommend packing jeans/longer shorts, especially if you plan on dining indoors or during the evening. And you can’t forget sturdy shoes, like sneakers or sandals that have good support, because you’ll be doing a lot of walking and flip-flops aren’t ideal!
