A friend of mine went to DR a year ago and said all she brought was a large carry-on (small rolling suitcase)and that fit ALL her stuff for the week...(bathing suits, a couple sundresses, pair of shorts, couple tank tops, pair of flip flops, pair of nice sandals, toiletries etc).
I find this hard to believe but she said she was basically in her bathing suit the whole time since it's soo hot!!! This has made me re-think my packing list and I'm wondering if there are other "light" packers out there that can confirm this for me -
maybe I'm just not realizing how HOT it's going to be!!! :):) I do tend to overpack though - but if I can get away with not checking any luggage that'd be awesome!
