    Hello there!

    I am thinking about getting some of those slip on type "aqua shoe" thingies I know I've read about somewhere for our OOT bags. From what I have heard, the beach at our resort (the Royal PDC Mexico), though lovely, is a bit rough in the water. I thought something that our guests would never think to bring themselves, would be a nice OOT addition.

    Is there a product that pads the tootsies from rocks/shells that can be worn into the water?

    I'm in Canada, so a vendor that ships here would be ideal!

    Thanks everyone!

      Hmmm...the cheapest place I've ever seen water shoes is at either Walmart or Target ~ are any of those in Canada?

      During the late spring/summer season, they generally run from $4 to $6 a pair. During a good sale, I've seen em as low as 2 for $5. In some after-summer sales you can find em as low as $2 a piece. Don't know if this helps you any? Haven't really seen em for as cheap online. How many pairs do you need? That would be a terrific OOT bag gift that I'm sure your guests would love

        I am going to have to agree...Wal-Mart is probably going to be the cheapest route on this one. You may want to contact any of the websites you look at and see if they can give you a discount if you buy in bulk. I know sometimes it NEVER hurts to call and ask. What's the most they can say "no" so you should give it a shot, it's not hurting anything.

          My FI and I found some really nice water shoes at Canadian Tire this past weekend for $20 each. That might be on the expensive side but they look really durable and could probably double as regular shoes for going to places like Xel-Ha and Xcaret.

          I hope this helps!

            Sweet...thanks ladies.

            I'm going to check out Canadian Tire (didn't even think of them) and Walmart.

            I don't need many...only 12 pairs...so if I can find the cheaper ones, just for wading in the water or whatever...that would be excellent!

              Ya I got my water shoes from Canadian Tire a few years ago for tubing the Elora Gorge in ON. They did the trick and Im taking them to Jamaica with me.
              Good idea stuffing them in OOT bags!
