The next stage in vacation planning is packing your bags. If you are spending Christmas vacation in Cabo San Lucas, you will obviously want to take swimwear and sandals, but because it is the holiday season, pack a few nicer outfits for Christmas meals as well. You will have a better idea of what to pack if you plan your travels in advance. If you are going on an outdoor adventure, you will need strong shoes and clothes that can get muddy. Even if you are giving experiences as presents, you will probably pick up a few trinkets along the route, so make sure to allow enough room in your luggage so you can bring these souvenirs home.
