It was funny, when they brought us a new shuttle van, we ALL put our seat belts on. And then laughed about it. (ps, it totally sucks to get in an accident in Mexico... we waited for about two hours in the dark... from 11pm to 1am...).

But when I got picked up from the resort to go home the next day (yes, that's right... booo). Anyway, when I got picked up I immediately buckled up and everyone looked at me like i was NUTS!!! i had to explain the story to them, at which point they too buckled up.

Yes is important to remember we need to use SB even in a taxy or a van, I have seen the most crazy people driving them!!! Glad you are safe!!!

I also would like to add that most other countries, the van / shuttle drivers drive crazy.. and I mean out of control crazy, so a seat belt is always a good thing. :-)

That is a good reminder!

 

And as I said in another post, there are thousand of transfer companies....some reliable others much less....that is why you also have diference in pricing! .....and many "cheap" companies subrent their vans and will put you in some without insurance. Believe it or not very few companies own more than 4 vans total in Cancun and Riviera Maya....many are just a third party renting from whoever.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
