Another Mexico customs question

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I just had what I thought was a fantastic idea and a way to save money on decor, and then just as quickly wondered whether it would even be remotely possible.


I know that one of the items not allowed through customs are plants/flowers/seeds. (Although I haven't yet been able to locate the exact Mexico customs laws about this.) But to what extent does this include branches and preserved items?


I found this fantastic site (nettletonhollow.com) that uses the most amazing and unique looking branches, etc. Check these out:


ramshead pods

grapewood branches

Would any of these be allowed through?? I think the ramshead might not be, as it's a pod that likely still has seeds inside...but the others? Would even manzanita branches be allowed? Can't find the precise list of what is and isn't okay...

keep in mind that the rule is not just for things that might have seeds, its also because sometimes there are bugs in things that you cant see, and thats another reason they are cautious about that.

Thanks, Maura. I did think about that...I got my bio degree with a specialization in botany. (You'd think I'd know where to look for this info!) But this stuff is all preserved to the Nth! So that's why I'm curious about more precise regulations.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
