Sarongs (Beach Wraps)

Recommended Posts

Hi Girls ,

 

I've researched the forum and couldn't find any info on these.  We are not doing a typical OOT Bag. Instead of out of town items, we are doing a more of a thank you welcome bag.


So we decided that all the guys (among other things) will get a hat with Jamaica on it, and for girls I wanted to get sarongs (beach wraps).  The only problem is that I am unable to find any in the stores or malls.  I found one store but they were at $20 CAD per one.  Having to buy 20, it's a bit much $ to spend.

 

Does anyone know a place in either Southern Ontario, Buffalo or Grove City PA where I could get them a bit cheaper.  I know I got them before in FL for a cheap, but that's a bit too far to drive from Toronto :)

 

The ones I found on the web are pricey too.  I'm hoping not to spend more then $5-$10 a piece.

 

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure about your travel plans, but if you haven't booked your flights yet I'd suggest going a day early and buying them in Jamaica. Not only will they be more authentic, but they will be a quarter of the price and you'll have much more variety to choose from. I personally think shopping in foreign markets is way more interesting than shopping in Canada :)

 

In Jamaica most resorts will arrange a taxi or driver to take you to a gated shopping area. The gates are meant to keep the local touts to a minimum so I recommend staying in there. You will have ample sarongs to choose from.

 

Hope that helps!

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
