      Great list, Paula! Thanks for posting.

      One note, make a photocopy of your passport and driver license to carry with you and scan/email another copy to yourself. That way, if you loses these documentations, you'll have some form of proof and will be easier to get the replacements.

          Make sure you have everything for your dress. I managed to forget a slip and my dress was see through. With quick thinking a slip was made for me.......

            Here is the packing list from my website:

            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
            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.
