Why risk it?

They have a kit at Bentley Luggage here in Canada that has a pack of them for all over the world, I think its 20$ or less. Much less than the cost to replace your camera, ipod, or straightener!

So straighteners can get fried even with a converter? My hairstylist is one of my best friends and he coming and is doing my and all the bridesmaids' hair. We are bringing our own curling irons and flat irons...what is the absolute safest way so they don't get fried?

 

So let me see if I have this straight: A converter switches the voltage, and an adapter just makes your plug fit their outlets?

Yea I'm a little concerned too Jackobelle. I"d like to know the answer to that too, because I know for sure Straighteners/curling irons etc will need to be used for the wedding day!!

Yes Jackobelle that's right :)

 

We didn't need adapters at the Sirenis last week but we needed converters. There was a 110v outlet in the bathroom (which didn't work well), all other outlets in our room were 220v.

My hairdresser's curling iron got fried even with the converter, my flat iron was fine (this was in Havana though)

We bought a package at best buy that had adapters for all over the world and a converter for $20. They're not expensive at all.

Oh no! Why would curling/flat irons get fried even with a converter? Does anyone know if you can buy 220V curling/flat irons here so they will be safe to use in Cuba?

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
