Hi everyone! Are we allowed to bring matches into Mexico? I know they said we can't bring sparklers, but I can't find anything about matches. Also, I assume bottles of aloe, hand sanitizer, etc. are okay to bring in (they're for my welcome bags). If anyone has any helpful info, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

I think as long as you pack the aloe/sanitizer in a checked bag, you should be good.  I've seen some suggestions to wait to assemble the bags until you're in Mexico, similar to wrapping presents.  TSA likes to go through them haha.  No clue on matches!

Great question!  I was wondering about sparklers and I think they would be super cute in pictures.  Could you buy them there?  I read somewhere else you just have to make sure you have receipts for everything and can't bring in over a certain $ amount of items.  If you are using a TA I would ask them.

There are travel websites that list all things prohibited in Mexico n how much of certain items you can bring I forget but you can use google to search

    Matches are only permitted in your carry on and limited to one pack per traveller. Aloe is fine to pack in your checked baggage... And sparklers are a total no-no.

    Does anyone know if you can have sparklers at your wedding in Mexico?

    Confirm with your resort but most are Ok with Sparklers. You can usually buy them from your wedding department at the resort as they are a prohibited item by the FAA for air travel. If not you can likely buy them at the local Walmart in Cancun.

    i am hoping that we can bring our own sparklers... i found a website where you can buy a pack of 10 for $1.00, and they are made differently than the ones you use during 4th of july etc... they are specifically for wedding photos - the way they burn, etc. my resort charges $2.00/sparkler!!!
