Starfish @ Customs...

Recommended Posts

I talked to a customs official from Jamaica, and she informed me that I couldn't bring real ones there, either.  I found very real-looking fake starfish from the Christmas Tree Shoppe.  And they were CHEAP!  I think I'm going to leave the "Made in China" tags on them until I get them through customs so that I don't have any problems.

Thats the route Im going. I'm using the starfish/sanddollars to make a christmas tree ornament for the favors. I can't imagine going thru all that work and getting them confiscated at customs. I think I'm going to save the tags that said they were made in China and pack them with the favors. Just worried because I have to take the sticker off to pack the favovrs in there favor boxes:/

I think customs is a hit or miss. when we went to Cancun last month we thought they would stop look at our bags and ask us lots a questions. They only asked us if we had a sandwich! Sandwich?! really... no drugs, plants etc...but sandwich....smh!

I was jsut talking to a friend who cam back from a destination wedding and she mentioned the bride had starfish and they were so cute, but I never considered if they were real or fake, now I will have to ask her b/c I was considering doing the same thing

it is probably one of those things where it is illegal to bring starfish in, but the fact of the matter is customs is hit or miss, so there are probably more times than not you would just squeak past

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
