      Thanks for posting this!! I only realized recently that you may be asked for receipts, so I have begun to gather all of mine in one envelope. Thanks for getting the word out and clarifying things!

            Did I also read somewhere regarding bringing a laptop? Do you have to pay a custom tax on that too since it's obviously over $300?

              Thanks for the info! I have been wondering that. Has anyone taken food for their OOT bags or as favors?

                We were in Cancun April 23rd and my husband had his laptop as a carry on. They ran it through the x-ray machine and did not say anything about it. I think that laptops are acceptable. They are more concerned about items that are still in their original boxes and look like they can be sold in Mexico. If it is personal items you should be ok unless you get a real jerk who wants to give you a hard time. The people we encountered were really nice both in customs and in immigration. They also did not say a thing about all the food and stuff I had in my luggage for my OOT bags. I had stuff for about 12 bags and it included cookies, crackers, gum, propel, first aid items, ect. I took everything out of their original boxes and just packed it plastic bags. I also took the tags off the OOT bags so that they did not look like I was going to resell them. Not sure if that was necessary.

                  I was thinking of mailing a couple of boxes of the items for my OOT bags and reception ahead of time to our villas so we wouldn't have to worry about customs. Has anyone done this and have some advice?

                  THank you!

                    Glad this thread popped up! Since there are 6 of us traveling down there together on the same flight (FMIL, FFIL, FBIL and his gf) we are lucky because we can just split everything up between the suitcases, plus we only have 15 OOT bags to make.

                    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

                    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
