All to go into one good sized back-pack
So far it is:
(in order of importance)
1. Passport
2. Some U.S. cash and rest to rely on CC card or Debit
3. 4 changes of clothes - 1 pant, shorts/t-shirts / long sleeve shirt / floppy hat (or cap coz I don't think I have one)
4. Sun screen
5. Some kind of insect repellent (recommendations should I buy this there?)
6. Swim suit
7. Towel
8. Rope for hanging wet clothes
9. Snorkel
10. Goggles
11. Thin sheets (blanket maybe)
12. Mag light
13. Wash cloth
14. Zip lock bags and maybe a small tupperware
15. Digital camera
16. Laptop (maybe)
17. Spare glasses
18. Toothbrush etc...

My big nightmare is getting turned back at the airport for not having some kind of shots (vaccines) or malaria pills or something, so please let me know of anything I am missing.

Don't worry about shots/pills - no requirements for air travel. Do you have room for your fins? Where are you staying? There is probably no need for blanket/sleeping bag. I would buy insect spray where you live (the kind with high % of Deet & read the warnings) then store it in a small ziplock baggie. Don't forget a hat/cap, sandals & small flashlight. Toothbrush & paste (Well, it wasn't on your list!) Did you decide on CC or AC? Wherever you go, have a blast!
Please write a trip report for us when you return.

Thanks for putting me right on the shots. I don't know if I will have room for fins or not.

I am staying at Pedros, but might do some backpacking off of AC and so wanted to be prepared.

Cap and hat is a really good idea, and I will probably wear sandals on the way down.

Why the small flashlight btw? I hadn't thought of that one...

Also, I am down there for a month, so I am going to stay on AC for a week then head down to Caulker and take it from there. Why not? I guess...

Are you checking the backpack or carrying it on?

If carrying on, you won't be allowed the sunscreen, insect repellent or toothpaste unless the containers are 3 oz. or less.

Newfoundlanders are the only people in heaven who want to go home.

Nah, I will check it in. Probably throw it in a plastic bag.

I will carry a smaller "day pack" on the plane with me. It can have electronics, books (if any) and maybe some snacks...

The flashlight is great for walking the beach at night. It gets dark early, and a lot of the area does not have lights. Also comes in handy when the power goes off. We take a mini-maglite. Fits in a pocket.
