Leave photocopies of your passport with a friend back home....

 

Take the numbers to call in case you lose your passport...

 

Calling card, if needed, for emergency calls back to the states (typically cheaper than having international calling added to a cell phone)...

 

Write down a list of the credit card numbers and CS numbers for any cards they plan to take with them in case their wallet is lost/stolen...

 

Number for the US Embassy in Mexico in case of emergency (natural disasters, etc...)...

Good ones, Maria. I included all the emg. numbers in a welcome portfolio in the OOT bags...if you have the time it's helpful to guests.

 

In addition to what you both have, I suggested guests bring:

 

hat

addresses in case they want to send postcards

comfortable shoes

single dollars for tipping

insect repellant

dramamine

extra batteries for cameras/ipods/etc. (they get costly oot)

 

That's all I can think of for now.

Great ideas! I thought of another thing. Its not really something to pack, but something to do. Call you CC companies & bank & let them know you will be in Mexico so they don't put a stop on your credit cards.

Aare electrical outlets the same in mexico as in the US? I can't remember ever using an outlet when I've been there. My camera battery is recharged by being plugged in. Are there usually outlets in the hotel?

 

What types of insects are your trying to repell? Mosquitos? I could see them being a problem in the jungle. They shouldn't be an issue on the beach right?

This is what I have on my website now:

 

Packing List

Things to bring

water shoes- the beach can be rocky

camera

underwater camera if you plan to snorkel or scuba dive

passport!!!!!

travel agent's phone number incase there is a problem

medication for head aches or stomach pain

sunscreen

hat

 

snorkel equipment: If you plan on doing a lot of snorkeling, having your own is very nice. The hotel has some you can use, but only for an hour at a time. There is a dive shop 2 miles away where you can rent equipment. You can get a set for $25 on amazon.com.

 

bottle opener

sunglasses

swimsuits

hat

dramamine if you get motion sickness

single ones for tipping or buying bottled water/beer when away from the hotel

calling card if you plan on making phone calls

extra batteries for cameras, etc.

camera charger & extra memory cards (for digital cameras)

 

outlet adaptor, if your plugs are 3 prong. The outlets in Mexico are like the 2-prong outlets in the US.

 

insect repellant

comfortable shoes

addresses if you plan on sending postcards

 

Things to do

Make a copy of your passport to leave with someone back home incase your passport is lost or stolen.

Leave the phone numbers & last 4 digits for your credit cards with someone so they can cancel them if they are lost or stolen.

 

Call your credit card companies and inform them you will be in Mexico so they do not freeze your account due to suspicious activity.

 

Inform your bank you will be in Mexico, if you plan on using your ATM card. You can ask them to temporarily raise the max on how much you can withdraw per day.

 

 

I didn't include the emergency numbers b/c I'll put them in the OOT bags. I might look them up & post them on the website too.

Not sure if its in your oot bags or anything, but we ALWAYS bring Aloe Vera gel. If you get a sunburn, it's a lifesaver... although not many people seem to bring it with them. Better to be safe than sorry! wink.gif

I always get burnt too. I wrote it on my list for OOT bags. If I don't end up buying any, I'll add it to the list.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
