SAN SALVADOR TRAVEL BASICS 101: THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

San Salvador, Bahamas

One PASSPORT IS REQUIRED
Two IF YOU FILL UP A SMALL SUITACSE, YOU PROBABLY PACKED TOO MUCH
Three DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY

Seriously, you can expect mid 80’s, partly cloudy weather during the day with clear skies and low 70’s weather at night. A couple pair of shorts, some short sleeve shirts, disposable tennis shoes or Teva-type sandals, swimsuit, 1 pair of jeans, 1 long sleeve shirt, underwear, a windbreaker, 2 beach towels, sheets and pillowcase is all you’ll really need. It is possible that we will encounter warm rain, so a poncho or waterproof windbreaker may be a good idea. There are a few occasions where a little dressing up is appropriate. Sun dresses, slacks, and dress shirts are considered formal attire in San Salvador. We will be on or near the beach every day so snorkeling is strongly encouraged.
