    Default Help! What do I Pack?

    I cannot believe it. I have picked up a stinking cold from some disease ridden git at work and I leave the UK for Cabarete on Friday.

    Does anyone think that I will need to pack any warmish clothing i.e. sweatshirt etc. as I do not know what the nightime temperatures are like and the last thing I want to do is end up being cold with a cold?!?!

    Sorry if I sound like a dunce but I have never been anywhere like this before, in fact I haven't left the UK for 12 years.

    I personally have never needed different clothing for the evenings, maybe it is because i work outside in the UK all year round so i handle it a bit better.

    It wont hurt to take one item i suppose, but dont forget the temperature in the DR in the evening is as good as our best days have been recently + very humid.

    Have a good time (I will be arriving just as you leave, maybe we will pass in the airport)

    P.S - Where in the Uk are you from?

    You won't need a sweatshirt or anything like that. Nights aren't much different to days temperature-wise IMO. In the evenings I wear sleeveless tops or strappy vests and have no problems.

    Don't forget to write a trip report when you get back and let us know what you got up to.

    ...........as soon as you start doing some merengue dancing or bachata you could almost wish for the colder UK nights (but not too strong a wish!)

    I would suggest you bring a light sweater. While the temperatures are unlikely to fall below 25C, it can get chilly at night. And night time rains are common, so it is always good to bring some cover.
