Chinese Lanterns And/or Sparklers On Plane?

Recommended Posts

I am pretty sure sparklers are not allowed in check in baggage, but how about Chinese lanterns? I thought they are like giant candles? Anyone with any experience with this? Can you  buy sparklers in Mexico?

You are correct in that sparklers are not allowed. Depending on the fuel cartridge on your lanterns they may not be permitted either. Have you confirmed with your resort that Chinese flying wish lanterns are allowed? Most of Mexico have banned them due to fire hazards. I would double check with your WC for sure.

 

You can likely purchase your sparklers direct from your resort or make a trip to Walmart depending on your location.

thanks for the info- I hope Walmart would have them (in PV, mexico). My resort planner said they are allowed in Nuevo Vallarta - depending on the wind at the time

Hey!  Our wedding coordinator clarified that we cannot have any of the Chinese lanterns.  It's too bad because it would have been so pretty - however- I totally get the dangers so we are trying to think of an alternative. 

 

I like the sparklers - but I have not heard back from the WC if they are allowed.  I know that we'd have to forsure get them from a walmart in mexico.  I'm not 100% sure they carry the same kind we have here.

 

If anyone knows, please share!  :)

We are at the Grand Sunset Princess - June 2015. 

 

From what I understand several if not all resorts in the mayan Riviera have the same rule.  It's soooo pretty though!!! lol

 

I am going to be travelling to Mexico in October to do a site an inspection and I am also going to get familiar with the walmart near by to see what they have available.  I will update to let you know if I find any sparklers.

I'm glad I checked this thread! I just googled, and you're only allowed 1 bic lighter or matchbook in your check in as well.  I was thinking about getting custom matchbooks - good to know they wouldn't be allowed through

I think that's in your carry on- NOT in checked (none permitted). I am sure that's the new rule/ but I could be wrong.

Yes it's carry on! I don't know why I wrote checked in

I wanted to do custom matchbooks too but when I called United Airlines to see if we could put them in our checked baggage I was told it was not allowed.  Kind of a bummer because we are having a cigar station and will have sparklers.   ^_^

    • 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.
