What to Bring

The following are recommended items to pack in your luggage:

What to Bring to ISDLightweight material shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, bathing suits and sandals are the standard – certainly for during the day. Light pants and jackets are recommended for the evenings.  People tend to dress a little less casually to go out for dinner or to bars, clubs or casinos, but it is recommended to have a nice set of clothing for going out in the evening, especially for the themed nightly events. A light rain jacket (and/or umbrella) is useful to have in the event of rain showers. If you plan to participate in adventure activities, such as horseback riding, a pair of runners/sneakers will definitely be useful to have.
