I recommend Teva sandals shoes whether you will be walking in the city or spending the day on a boat. I wore my Tevas all over the St. Lucia Sandals resort.
I spent the week at the resort with my wife just walking uncomfortable everywhere. My Tevas were great on the boats and hiking the islands! And they did not take up much space in my suitcase!
Teva Sandles' Pros:
Teva sandals are good in hot weather so your feet catch the summer breezes The newer Teva styles have some arch support for added comfort Completely waterproof so you can even wear them in the water to protect your feet while launching your boat You can now get different styles - the traditional multi-colored cloth, black and a faux suede look great with shorts Teva shoes do not weigh much. Many adventure trips have weight limits on suitcases and these shoes add very little weight Teva sandals are excellent if you will be walking on large rocks like you find in Maine and Nova Scotia Very durable Teva Sandals' Cons:
Open toes! A stone or sand caught in your Teva shoes can cause a great deal of discomfort Tevas provide very limited ankle support for rugged terrain You cannot wear Tevas in the cold unless you are a sandal and socks person
