        pack something that converts a 3 prong plug for a 2 prong outlet if you have any 3 prong things to plug in. many of our outlets were 2 prong. I was told all the outlets were like that in mexico, but one in our room had 3 prongs.

        is sunscreen on your list?

        i enjoyed having a cd of music for the room.

        also, call your banks/ credit card companies before you go to tell them you will be out of the country. they might think it's suspicious activity & block your cards.

        oops, i just realized you are going to jamaica. maybe someone else knows if the outlets need converters there.

              Just a few small things you might want to bring

              makeup remover
              Books/magazines to read on the plane or the beach
              Purse/Small bag to bring with you on excusrions
              Bottle for water (Some resorts give bottles, others just give cups, personally, I like to keep good water in my room to brush my teeth with)

              Good luck! Have fun! Enjoy every minute of it!

                    Not sure if you are doing a sand ceremony or not, but don't forget your stuff for that.
