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 wink.gif )... 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..

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
