    I am putting a list of things to tell my guests to remember, and was wondering if there are things you guys can think of to include.
    So far I have:

    -Underwater camera
    -Water shoes (beach is rocky)
    -Sunscreen
    -$1.00 bills and small denominations
    -Long sleeves for evenings
    -Leave towels at home because resort provides them (don't waste the space)...

    Anything important that I am missing? I will be giving oot bags with all the goodies (tums, advil etc.)

              i can't think of anything (i think my bronchitis has made my brain stop working) but this thread reminded me of when my mom used to print out this travel check sheet everytime we'd go away, or when my sis and i went to sleepaway camp...everything from undies to bathing suits, sunblock to teddy bears (or lace teddies in this case )... it became a running joke in my family - maybe i'll do that for my guests ...

              sorry for hijacking!

                Here is the list from my website

                Things to bring

                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. You can also carry a copy with you or scan the documents and email them to yourself. Having a copy will make it easier to get a replacement if necessary.
                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.

                  These are great too...
                  One thing I am doing is with the information letter I am sending out before the trip, I am including a "contact card" with all of the resorts information, manager, phone numbers, travel agent and flight info., and applying a magnet to it to give to babysitters, house sitters, friends/relatives, grandparents etc..

                    That's such a great idea!
