Tips for Travel Planning

What to pack:

  • Cotton rather than synthetic clothing is recommended.
  • Winters are usually mild to warm, which calls for light clothing in the middle of the day, and a sweater or jacket for the evenings and early mornings when it can become quite cold.
  • An important item is comfortable walking shoes, which have been “worn-in”.
  • Swimsuits are required for public beaches and swimming pools.
  • When packing, remember to include binoculars, a sun-hat, sunglasses, sun block, bathing towel, moisturizer, lip-ice and mosquito repellents.
  • Include any personal medication that you might need to take. It is advisable to pack this medication in your hand luggage, which you always carry with you.
  • Camera equipment, lots of spare film, batteries and spare memory cards for the digital cameras are essential, as the opportunity to download photos is limited.
  • Electricity (250VAC) is available at most accommodations.

Passports & Visas:
The onus is upon the guest to ensure that passport and visas are valid for the countries visited. Passports must be valid for at least six (6) months after date of departure. Passports must have two (2) entirely open pages.
SUNBIRD TOURS, its staff and agents cannot be held liable for any visas, etc. not held by the guests, nor any costs involved for obtaining a visa.
