      Hi Sandra, I see that you are getting married at the Barcelo in Mayan Riviera. I had read a post somewhere (will search for it) that said someone bought maracas right at the hotel and they even painted/engraved the bride/groom names and date. just a thought. lots less to pack..this is what I plan do as we are having our wedding at the Barcelo in January as well.
      75 booked!!! WHOOOP WHOOOPP!!!

          20 pairs...as in 40 individual maracas? I bought my Maracas in Mexico (30 of them) and they filled up 2 shopping bags to the top. I think 40 full-size maracas would fill up one carry on sized bag...with a few more that might have to go in another bag.

              I paid $1 USD each at the shops in Playa del Carmen. Most shops sold them for $1.50 USD each but if you go to the shops that aren't on the main strip or further down towards the end you'll find cheaper sellers or ones that are willing to bargain. Unfortunately I don't know if you'll need anything for customs...you might have to declare them since you are bringing them back in a large quantity. Sorry but I can't help there...hopefully someone else can!

                I didnt read any posts so im not sure if someone already said this but
                Oriental trading co. Party supplies, crafts, party decorations, toys: Oriental Trading has some for 14.99 a dozen. they are wooden and not plastic! I think they have a few more options like that too that maybe a little cheaper as well.
                Good luck!!

                oh i also wanted to tell you these are painted fiesta colors and chill's in such on them. they come in assorted colors such as yellow red blue and green. Good luck to you again!!

                  I've been looking for the bigger size ones, plain so I can paint them our wedding colors as well! Haven't been able to find anything!! Searched all over google...they have the mini ones @ OTC, but all the reviews saythey dont make very much noise...I was thinking it'd be fun to use them @ the reception instead of clinking knives on your glass for a kiss....can anyone come up with a cute saying I can attach to the maracas (assuming I find some-ha!)
                  Thanks! :)

                      If you buy them at your destination they are not only cheaper but you don't have to worry about packing them....BTW, what are your wedding colors
