6. Don't Forget to Plan for the Weather

Even if your main goal is to see primarily indoor attractions, you'll probably find yourself doing plenty of walking outdoors to get to them. Be sure to plan for the weather. Sunscreen is a must, and bug spray is highly recommended since mosquitoes love the muggy climate. Consider bringing an umbrella for protection against the rain and sun alike, although if you're packing light, you can easily pick one up as you travel. Although there are plenty of places to buy food and drink, carrying a reusable water bottle can save you some money and ensure you stay hydrated. Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes, too.
