Shipping to Cabo

Recommended Posts

My WC advised me not to ship anything to Mexico(Puerto Vallarta, specifically). She said that more often than not, items don't arrive. I was a little bummed by this b/c we have lots of stuff to bring also. However, I think I would rather pay the extra luggage fee, and know that everything will arrive safely with me.

You'd be surprised how much you can fit without going over. None of ours came in over 50 pounds each, the closest came to 46. Another bonus about bringing stuff down is that you have an empty piece of luggage to stuff with souveniers on the way home :o)

I actually just shipped some boxes via fedex international today. It is pretty detailed all the forms you have to fill out. I spoke directly with a shipping broker in Cabo that deals with big shipments from the US to Mexico and he recommended Fedex or DHL for smaller event shipping. Everything should arrive within 4 days, go through customs review, and delivered to Mariana @ Dreams. I gave myself about 2 weeks for the stuff to get there.

I will keep you updated on my shipment. I just checked it and it is in transit to Los Cabos, cleared customs from Guadalajara. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

I'm thinking of shipping some stuff to the resort too! I did pick out smaller lanterns for centerpieces, but i'm sure i want to pack them with me! I hate lugging around suitcases and I'm worried if I check the suitcase filled with more fragile items, they may get broken. Its harder than I thought to plan a destination wedding!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
