How do I get my OOT bag goodies to Mexico?

Recommended Posts

I need your help! I don't have too many things but I am nervous they will get taken in customs upon our arrival. Should I just put everything in a bag and try to explain that it is my wedding?

 

I was told not to ship by my WC and it's too soon for that. Should I break it up among my family or just try to get it over myself?

Break it up between family and have receipts ready for everything. I think the limit is $300 worth of stuff per person? This has been covered in other thread, so you might find more info by searching.

Liz, I have 11 bags I'm distributing between my family and friends. That's the only way to go. You also don't want the Resort responsible for holding your stuff and mysteriously dissapearing!

 

Inside each bag I'm placing a list of what's in the bag and how many of each. Along with a note that it's for a wedding. I'm going to laminate it and leave it inside the bag on the top.

Since I work at the airport, I asked one of the TSA guys that screens bags in the ramp, and he suggested to not only do a list but write something begging/pleading to be gentle since it's for a wedding. He said he actually reads the notes and does put everything back neatly if they have to open it for whatever reason. lol Crazy huh?!

I'm also going to give a copy to whoerver is carrying it. That way they'll know what's in the bag and can explain themselves if they get stopped at arrival.

I appreciate it. I have shipped some to my mother, aunt, and everyone down the family tree. I am looking at trying to get 30 bags down there. Yikes. It should be fine. Thanks for your help!

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
