    Certain airlines put restrictions on excess baggage (extra peices of luggage or luggage that is overweight) during certain heavily trafficed months. Continental Airlines to Mexico and the caribbean does this fairliy often. But other airlines do it as well - if you plan on bringing heavy bags or extra boxes/suitcases etc. please check ahead of time so you don't get denied at the airport!

    Continental Airlines: http://www.continent....e/embargo.aspx
    Restricted (they will accept 1 peice of extra luggage I think) During following Dates to Cabo:

    November 15, 2006 - January 15, 2007
    March 30, 2007 - April 11, 2007
    June 4, 2007 - August 31, 2007

    This is a pretty big chunk of the year and it starts next week - so make sure your airline isn't doing the same for the high season (now)!

    It's just go to know ahead of time...

          Sarah - I think in may you should be safe. The key is really just to ask the airline before you buy your tickets. Or of course you can ask your TA...
