Miami Spring getaway ?

This is often considered the best season in Miami, temperature wise. Keep in mind March is the month most institutions have their Spring break. Prepare accordingly, whether you enjoy the festive youth ambiance or prefer more “grown-up” atmospheres. Whatever your choice, the below list is handy:

  • Sunscreen (SPF 15) – Two types of ultraviolet radiation, UVA and UVB, are responsible for skin damage, premature ageing, and eventually high risk of skin cancer. Sunscreens with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 15 are Ideal for long sunshine exposure, to protect your skin from UV radiations. UVB rays cause sunburn, while UVA rays are associated with leathering, wrinkling, and saggings, due to a deeper penetration in the skin.  
  • Swim Suit, and a cover-up – Some people might get jealous of your beach body at the hotel lobby.
  • Umbrella – Though designed to protect you from the rain, an umbrella is also considered the very first sunblock, great in preventing sunburn wrinkles and skin ageing.
  • Open-toe shoes – Sweaty feet? That’s probably because your feet can’t get enough air while inside your shoes. While in Miami, give your feet a break with open shoes.
  • Sandals – Like the open shoes, sandals are perfect for letting your feet breathe. Furthermore, some foot conditions like ingrown toenails heal faster when your feet are kept out of a tight and damp environment.  
  • Long-sleeve shirts. – Your arms are one of the most common areas exposed to the sun, and open water doesn’t provide enough direct sunlight protection. As you stay in the sun, your arms may become burned, and sunscreen may make both your hands and arms slick when trying to manage some other activities like fishing. That’s where long-sleeve shirts come handy.
  • Light sweater. – Great for traveling, lounging at the hotel or home, and parties in Miami beach. .
  • Closed-toe shoes. – Highly recommended for crowded indoor events. Ensure you wear the right size and your soles are comfortable, to prevent short term health issues like corns and nail problems, or long term ones like back and joint pain. Sneakers can do it for casual clubs, while dress shoes are ideal for formal places. Check out the dress code before you leave your location. 
  • Shorts – During daytime activities like shopping, sightseeing, and casual dining, you’ll want to wear shorts, jeans and flip flops almost anywhere around Miami.
  • Skirts – Any style or color is welcome, though Black, Hot Pink, White, Yellow And Light Pink are most common in Miami. You’ll very likely steal the spotlight when entering the club in a sexy set featuring gorgeous rhinestones throughout, a keyhole crop top, and matching mini skirt.
  • Lightweight long pants. – They pack well and are handy in rainy days. Go for good quality travel pants, made of quick drying, durable, easy to care for material. You’ll have to find a balance between color variety and style, though. Also, consider those that easily convert to shorts.

Summer time travel ?

Summer season is hot and humid, so your travel bag should contain the following:

  • UV protection clothing – Studies show that ordinary clothing only provides limited protection, equivalent to wearing an SPF5 sunscreen. In the summer time in Miami, UV protection clothing is handy.
  • Sunglasses – Somebody said “sunglasses, like red lipstick, change everything…”
  • Hat – Now, how about sunglasses, red lipstick…and a hat?…The latter will supplement or substitute your sunblock, while helping you look like a star in disguise… Well, if that’s what you fancy :-).  
  • Eco-friendly Mosquito repellent – The nature will thank you… So will your own health.
  • Sunscreen (SPF 30) – Useful even if you don’t get exposed to the sun for long periods. Saying It can get quite caliente in Miami during the summer days is an understatement.
  • Swim Suit, and a cover-up – Useful when you go back to the hotel.
  • Umbrella – Both protects you from the rain, and acts like a sunblock, preventing sunburn wrinkles and skin ageing.
  • Sandals – Your feet will thank you for having them breathe in Miami this season, especially if you are prone to ingrown toenails or sweaty feet. 
  • Shorts – You’ll find yourself walking longer distance than usual, just enjoying shopping, sightseeing, going back and forth in the water. That’s where shorts, jeans and flip flops will appear handy in Miami.
  • Skirts – Any style or color is welcome, though Black, Hot Pink, White, Yellow And Light Pink are most common in Miami. You’ll very likely steal the spotlight when entering the club in a sexy set featuring gorgeous rhinestones throughout, a keyhole crop top, and matching mini skirt.
  • Short and Long-sleeve shirts – Your arms are one of the most common areas exposed to the sun, and open water doesn’t provide enough direct sunlight protection.

That’s where long-sleeve shirts come handy. BonVoyageMiami recommend cotton for this season.
  • Light sweater – Most indoor activities, like restaurants have Air Conditioning. Don’t catch a cold in the summer.  

Travelling in the Fall?

Fall is usually considered the “off-season”, or the cheapest time of the year for travelling.

Your travel bag should contain the following:

  • Sunscreen (SPF 15) – For long sunbathing ultraviolet (UV) exposure. Two types of UV radiation, UVA and UVB, are responsible for skin damage, premature ageing, and eventually high risk of skin cancer. Sunscreens with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 15 are Ideal for long sunshine exposure, to protect your skin from UV radiations. UVB rays cause sunburn, while UVA rays are associated with leathering, wrinkling, and saggings, due to a deeper penetration in the skin. 
  • Umbrella – Yes, it can rain heavily here. Though designed to protect you from the rain, an umbrella is also considered the very first sunblock, great in preventing sunburn wrinkles and skin ageing.
