For me that's a bit of a tough one...in Mexico, it's so friggin' hot during the day that the ice melts quickly, diluting your drink...and I like my drinks cold and frosty! On the flipside, it's something else to haul around and keep track of...we didn't take any type of insulated container either trip to Mexico. I just asked my FI if he would ever consider taking something and he said no. But, we're the type to get up early, have breakfast and leave the resort to do an excursion for a good part of the day. Maybe if you tend to hang around the resort and drink most of the day, it would be more useful.
The other thing I enjoy is being able to try something different every time you spin around on the resort. Coffee drinks, blended drinks, beer...it's just a great time to experiment! I don't like to be wasteful, but if I don't finish a drink because it's past its' prime or I don't really care for it, that's ok.

But, my fiance thinks it is a crazy idea...waste of space and doesn't think our guests will use them. I don't agree...thoughts? I have been to all inclusives before and I know they give you drinks in small plastic glasses and having a tumbler is more convenient. He hasn't been to an all inclusive.
Advice? I don't want to give them if my guests aren't going to use them.Thanks!
