if you are going to mexico you shouldn't need bug spray, in dominican/cuba you will

 

i always bring a pair of socks & hoodie for back at the room, i always get the chills if i'm sunburned and the A/C is on in the room.

 

i love the idea of bringing ice tea singles for the water, half way through the week i'm always looking for something else to drink besides water, pop, juice or booze. ice tea is perfect.

 

for hangovers & stomach problems (indigestion, nausea, diarrhea) bring Po Chai pills

they work wonders!!! best money spent!

1. Different sizes of safety pins
2. scissors and sewing kit...the small portable kit
3. Mini First Aid Kit. It contains band aids, neosporan, burn cream, tylenol, etc. We also take Liquid Imodium and Emetrol.
4. Bug Repellant. Those little gnats will getcha at sunset in most tropical regions.
5. "Wine Away" red wine stain remover, very small portable spray bottle. It's Magic!!!!
6. Small bottle of Fabreze
7. Extra Hair Pins
8. Altoids
9. Super Glue
10. Handkerchiefs for the guys. Classier for dabbing their brows due to tropical humidity/heat
So that's what's in our bag of tricks. Hope it helps.
thanks for posting...its good to here from someone who deals with A LOT of brides/situations :)

For my "chub rubs" I always pack Vaseline. Thin layer on my thighs works great under dress, shorts, whatever! Plus Vaseline is great to use on my lips at night (sun is always drying my lips out) AND if you really have some foot damage from sand, walking rub vaseline on your feet and cover with socks over night.

Speaking of Vaseline, I just ordered something called Body Glide (I'm pretty sure I read about it on here) that is supposed to be fantastic for chub rub, blisters, etc. Anyone else use this product? It got great reviews on amazon.

Body Glide is the best! Use it on your feet too if you are going for a hike or anything. It rocks!

I wish I had remembered to pack a few small sharpie markers. It was on my list, but I forgot them. blush2.gif They were going to be for people to write their names on their cups from us. Oh well... they managed.

I haven't had to pack my bag quite yet but have a review about BODY GLIDE! It's amazing! I used it during my Running Clinic and my instructor told us about the great benefits for Chub Rub...I've also used it on my feet with new shoes...NO BLISTERS! You can pick it up at any Running Room location!

I stayed in Higuey city (40 minutes SW of PC and inland). It was hot and within 3 days I had a heat rash under my arms. I bought Body Glide and the next 2 times in the city, I never had a problem :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
