Keep Your Documents & Money Safe
A money belt and passport pouch can save your holiday! They're great ways to keep important documents on you. They are light & inexpensive and a great idea when travelling. It is also a great idea to have copies of your travel documents. Leave one with a family member and one with yourself, should the unfortunate event of a lost/stolen travel document happens.
Dress like the Locals
For those venturing out of the resort and into local communities, it's safer to blend in than to stick out. Besides, who would want to look like a tacky tourist anyway?!
Sure, you want to be prepared for everything during your trip. Hauling of those bags can get a bit taxing though. Try to limit yourself to one pack. Be sensible of what you'll bring. Take plenty of items that you can mix and match. Leave any unnecessary accessories at home. When you're traveling, less is more.
Keep the Cash
When possible, avoid changing money at the airport. You get a much better rate at a bank, or your hotel!
