Sorry for all the questions! I do have some receipts, so hopefully that will help too!
No, it's just like an airport in the US, there are always people w/ carts in the baggage area wanting to help (aka getting tips for it). So you'll see a few guys walking around with huge carts, waive one down and tell him how many bags you have, slip him a tip and on you go.

I was wondering the same thing, I packed mine up and am planning to put them in my suitcase rather than in with the OOT stuff, I'm so scared there going to get taken sad.gif!

Hopefully it will be a breeze! I am taking about 70 starfish so I am not sure if I will keep them together and take the receipt or split them into several bags with others and if some don't make it oh well. smile41.gif

The $300 is the rule. Love that you girls are paying of the baggage dudes -smart! I'm saving my receipts and will stay below the $300 pricetag since I'll be buying the OOT stuff down there. My friend offered to buy and carry down my custom koozies and we'll bring the bags and other miscellaneous. If we go over, i will give some to my mother.. i assume the receipts will be ok since we share the same last name (i hope). If not, people will not be receiving bags, just contents in some cheapy MX baggie. By the time we are all in Mexico we probably will not care... hopefully i can get a beer the minute i get out of the airport!

Also, I figured it would be hard to say it was for our wedding with no wedding dress. So...I have 2 jcrew wedding dresses in my closest that I bought for $80. I'm going to take one of those with me so customs believes I'm getting married. Plus, I can leave the dress there and use it for my TTD. Think it will work?
I am confused. One person here said the customs $300 limit is only for bringing Mexican items to the US and not bringing US items to mexico. All i know is my dress bought in the USA is way over the $300 mark and i refuse to bring receipts of that. What should I do?
