      Autjo- When you say they "gave you a hard time" about the waterproof camera's and hand sanitizer what happened?  Why would those things be such a big deal at the airport if they were checked?  I'm assuming they eventually let you pass but what suggestions do you have for getting the camera's past them easily without them making a huge deal about them?

      Ummmm.... I took real starfish, but they were all wrapped up in boxes and DH grabbed that suitcase and basically ran to the exit so it wouldn't get searched. The bag that did get searched had OOT junk and they gave me a super hard time over the waterproof cameras and hand sanitizer. So yeah, I'm guessing that they totally would have confiscated the starfish if they had found them. Probably better to not take them with you. Maybe ask your WC where you could buy them in town when you get there...

          Oh no! I had been seeing so many threads with shells that I didn't really think it was strictly enforced. I bought so many sand dollars and turned them into beautiful ornaments since we're getting married. I am so frustrated.

              I had receipts and a note that said all of the junk was for my wedding, but for some reason they didn't believe me. They said there was no way that the cameras cost me $6 and the hand sanitizer cost $1 for 3. So strange. They called over a supervisor and talked for almost 15 minutes. While I sat there, DH grabbed all of the other luggage and got it out of customs as quickly as possible. But then, they let me go with no reason other than a snide remark about me making up costs.

              I love love love giving ornaments for Christmas time weddings. I would say make it as hard as possible to find them. Like wrap them, put them in a sealed box, put that box in your luggage. The stuff that I had packaged like that, they didn't go through.

                    How much did they quote you for the rooftop? That sounds amazing and would be an awesome experience away from the resort. It's within walking distance,right?
