Happy Hump Day!! I am officially 1 day away from my trip to Playa del Carmen for one of my bestie’s bachelorette party weekend. I haven’t been to the beach in Mexico since two years ago for my baby sister’s big 1-8. The beach is my favorite place to be and I am excited to finally be back.

I wanted to do a pre-trip post to tell you all about where I am going, how I prepare for my trips, and my packing essentials.

We are staying at the most amazing looking AirBnB from Friday to Sunday. I have never stayed at an AirBnB in Mexico, but I am super excited about it. It’s a condo right on the beach front and the complex has a pool. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 4 beds; perfect for a bachelorette weekend!

My favorite part of staying in an AirBnB is probably how cheap the stay is, but also the easiness of being in a prime location while still feeling like you are at home.

The condo is right by the beach so I plan to take full advantage of that. Running and laying on the beach are my favorite things to do when I am in a beach town.

The weather is not looking too good for my first day there, but I am prepared for any kind of weather Mother Nature has for us!

My packing list for my Playa trip will include:

  • Passport
  • One-piece and Bikini
  • Cover-Ups
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Camera
  • Go-Pro
  • Backpack
  • External Battery Packs
  • Shorts
  • Lightweight Shirts and Tank Tops
  • One Pair of Jeans
  • Dresses
  • Sandals, Flats, and Sneakers
  • Heels
  • Sweater
  • Rain Poncho
  • Travel Umbrella
  • Water Shoes
  • Necessities (toiletries, etc.)

The weather is supposed to be rainy on Friday then partly cloudy the rest of the time we are there. I want to be prepared for anything.

Going through Pinterest I found a few outfits that I would like to mimic on my trip.

Packing is going to be an adventure. I have to pack tonight since I will be leaving tomorrow morning SUPER early. Thankfully, I am spending today at a conference that happens to be close to an outlet mall. I plan on stopping by for anything else I might need (or want lol).

Follow along with my Playa del Carmen adventures on Snapchat and Instagram! I will also be going LIVE tonight at 10 PM CT on Instagram to go through my packing essentials for my beach trip.
