    Don't forget to pack this: (fill in the blank!)

    For all of you who are packing to head to Hedo in the near future, let us Hedo vets share packing tips!
    I will start. Be sure to pop by Walmart and pick up two " wrist coil with ring" keychains. You put your Hedo keycard on the keychain and can wear it on your wrist or ankle while doing water sports etc.
    It also makes it nice if you want to go to the gym, or dinner without taking a bag.

    No worries....and it is adaptable to each visit and visitor. I sometimes add or don't take certain items depending on my group needs and wants (But I am a serial over-packer of costumes, boots, wigs, accessories....lol)

    Lysol-first thing when I get in the room, I spray down in the air conditioner vent, doorknobs, light switches, remote control, bathroom surfaces. Hedo crud (sinus/respiratory illness) is a thing and I have not gotten it since I started bringing the Lysol. Better safe than sick on vacation.

    Insulated mug-keeps the beverages cold and minimizes the trips to the bar. I think the one I have now is 18 or 20 oz.

    Small bills (ones and fives) for tips going and coming from the resort or if you go off the resort. It seems that Jamaicans rarely have change! lol

    6. Tanlines gone or reduced & plenty of sunscreen packed-----check

    7. Ready to leave work and daily responsibilities behind———check!!!!!

    An inflatable water float. It's not as necessary as it used to be, but during months of high occupancy, floats can be in high demand for the beach. Scuba shack can blow them up for you
