Customs issues?

Recommended Posts

Hi! Sorry if this question has been answered already - I'm new!

 

I was thinking that I would just pack the mini bottles of sunscreen and other beauty products for my OOT stuff in my suitcase, but I'm worried that the Customs in Cabo will see all the bottles and think I'm trying to start a beauty supply store or import/export business!! (I know that not every bag gets searched, but I've got the type of luck that always makes the red light turn on when you push the customs button.)

 

How do other brides get stuff down there?

 

Thanks!

I think that I'm just going to mail mine ahead of time to the resort... :)

I'm gonna go ahead and make all of my OOT bags and mail one box to the Resort...

I was curious about this too. I'd really like to do my own silk flowers for centerpieces, but I have no clue how to get them down there without crushing them in boxes, etc... Suggestions on this would be great....

we were brining down stuff for 60 people and i was def. worried about the stuff going through customs...what i did was split the stuff between bags and had some go in my mom and dads bag...i wasnt worried about the OOT bags but was mainly worried about the many bottle of sunscreen i had...

 

also, it is a little bit of a clusterfuck (excuse my french) there...so we got all clustered right before the button(you have to press it-get red and you get checked, green-you go through)....as soon as steve pushed green, i pushed him through with ALL the bags with the stuff in it. that way if i pushed red, they would only search my small bags with out anything in it.

 

if steve had pressed red, and i pressed red (which wouldn't happen) i would have left the stuff with my parents right behind us in line.

never would have thought of that!

to be honestwith you girls though i'm not overly concerned...if i get questioned about it i'm just gonna be honest and say i'm giving them to my wedding guests...i mean i'll have my wedding dress right there, ya know?


i think it would be different if you had like 3000 bottles of sunscreen or something hehe but 40 or 50 i don't think would raise *too* many eyebrows, especially if they know you're going down there to get married.

I brought 70 mini laterns in two packed boxes. Customs could tell I was a bride because I was holding my wedding dress bag. We told them they were wedding favors and described them. No problems at all! I think they are used to brides bringing stuff. I ended up taking about 20 lanterns back home and no problems again.

 

Good luck!

FYI gals, if you are bringing any lotion, gel, or cream-type items for your OOT bags, if you pack them in your carry-on's you are only allowed ONE quart-size zip-loc style clear baggie with bottles/containers sized 3.4oz or less, per person.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
