    Has anyone shipped their OOT supplies to EDR? I asked Monica about this and she said that I can ship it directly to her. Did anyone get charged extra for this? Did you get your package when you arrived? I'm a bit nervous b/c we have a LOT of stuff to ship - maybe two boxes worth and we don't want to worry about packing all of this stuff in our suitcases.

      I wanted to ship my stuff, but when I asked Valeria, she suggested not doing it. I guess I didn't really ask why, so I just packed everything.

        I want to ship becuase we had that problem with the stuff stolen out of our luggage. I am trying to figure what would be the best company to ship with.

          I was just going to ship via FedEx. Monica told me that we have to understand that if items get damaged during the shipping or customs check process, that the hotel is not liable.....but it's FedEx.....it should be ok, right?

            I have always heard shipping to Mexico was not a very good idea. Gets lost. Items get stolen. Broken. etc. etc.
            BUT, if you do ship. Please let us know how it goes. I would be very interested in knowing how everything turned out! I think I will have 3 boxes of wedding stuff, not including my dress or luggage. Ugh!!! Don't even want to think about how I'm going to do it!!!

                I just spoke to an international FedEx representative and told her what we wanted to ship. She said that she wouldn't do it and advised to take our stuff on the plane. She said that Mexico is very, very picky and one item (especially toiletries or medication or stuff made in China) could cause the whole package to get returned. On top of that, the rates to ship it could be as high as $200 and that's not including the customs taxes and fees. She also said that even if it did make it through customs, it could be delayed days or even weeks.
