There is a huge chess board, a pier, apparently the taco place in the Grand section is hard to find and maybe the mini golf course for a few ideas.

Cee Cee,

 

GORGEOUS PICTURES!

 

Is David one of the Palace photographers or he was hired outside?

 

Thanks,

Hey guys,

 

Once more thing for the bag that I read about...Aloe! Most people get a list a little bit of a burn and most forget Aloe.

 

Love the body wash idea...and I think I will hit up the dollar store for some small loafa's too!

 

Thanks!

I don't think I'm doing OOT bags for my guests, but something I thought was a great idea to include in them was an emergency kit... pepto, immodium, hangover meds, hand sanitizer, etc. Because we'll likely have a small number of guests, we're thinking of other options like cigars (our friends and FI love them), necklaces, sarongs, etc. That's if we have a small number. If the actual guest list expands, then we'll adjust it.

  • Newsletter

  • Sunblock
  • Cheap Sunglasses (like the kiddy ones from the $1 store)
  • Gum
  • Body Wash (they only have soap in the rooms and a lot of people like body wash)
  • Safety Pins
  • Squirt Gun or Bubble Gun

 

Stuff like that. I haven't shopped for any of it, so I'm sure it'd get pricey, but I'm just keepin' track of ideas for when I'm ready to go shopping. What are you putting in yours?

I'm doing the same thing - I'll keep everything seperate until we get there and then I'll assemble them before we meet up later that night. 

 

What contents did you put in your bag?

Hi ladies,

I am interested in booking a group excursion for my guests and I during our stay (to some of the Mayan Ruins) - does anyone know if we can reserve this in advance? Or how we go about this?

Good Morning!

 

I have a question about American money - I've heard conflicting information about taking it with us.  We have always taken American money with us and that is how we pay for anything we buy, for excursions and for tipping etc.  I've now heard that they do not want us to use American money and that we should take Peso's with us?

 

Does anyone have any more information on this? 

 

Thanks!

Angela

I've heard that you can only make reservations upon arrival, but check with your WC. If you're planning to take an entire group, they might make an exception.

I was just there a few weeks ago and we definitely tipped with US money without any problem. Also, most of the other items you could probably charge to your room and use a CC to pay for it if you want (but watch out, most CCs charge a 3% internaitonal fee).

Maybe have them look out for an iguana? I saw about 15 when I was there for 2 days!  There's also a VIP beach area, a rock climbing wall...

 

It might also be fun to have 'em look for certain things about people (which could vary, but if you keep it general and kind of silly, it could be fun)... like look for a worker whose name starts with J or a super sunburnt guest... I don't know, stuff like that maybe?

    • 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.
