Failing to Pack Important Medications
Common Mistakes in Caribbean Travel
Mark Kahler, licensed to About.com

One-bag carry-on packing is important for budget travelers who want to cut out baggage fees. Since many Caribbean visitors arrive by air, the strategy is sound.

But don't take the advice so seriously that you fail to pack essential medications, everything from a hard-to-fill prescription to your favorite brand of over-the-counter health product. Such items will be difficult to replace in many parts of the Caribbean, and when they can be replaced, you'll frequently pay a much heftier price than what is charged back home.
