Keep your valuables at Home!

I bought 16 luggage locks from this ebay seller. They were $36. I believe they have more.

 

I wanted combo locks so people don't have to keep track of a key. You can also change the combos. I think I'll make them all the same incase someone forgets it. Probably a number that is meaningful.

 

Good idea to have that little case for by the pool. I might just rig something up with my laptop lock. I've already spent too much on locks!

OH is terrible! People are slimballs. When I go to Carly's wedding in May, I am thinking of not bringing anything of value (my ring included) I'm just hearing way too many bad things like this happening.

Very cool safe. FI and I have a small safe in our house that we have keys for. We just went to get in it the other day but noticed both our keys are missing off our key rings. I paniced and freaked out. My sister has the same safe and oddly enough- same key. How dumb is that? It's like suitcase keys. Thankfully all our stuff was still in the safe, but I was scared it wasn't.

 

I like the idea of having a combo lock but hopefully I wouldn't forget it!

I am only taking my ring because it's my wedding. For future mexico trips (or anywhere we'd be swimming) I won't take it. I'll either wear a fake or another ring. I plan on getting a cute travel wedding ring. I already have fake earings I travel with. I don't take anything valuable on trips. Not worth the worrying. My camera is the only thing of value I take, but i keep it on me all the time. I'll have to lock it in my luggage when we go snorkeling. I'll remove the SD card first too so no one will get my pictures. I'd rather have a bunch of money stolen than pictures.

That's a good idea about the memory card! Thx, I will keep that in mind too when we go away!

i CANT leave all my valuables at home sad.gif my valuables is what i take the photos with.. but thank god for insurance right wink.gif

 

on a HAPPIER note and more positive. i had two friends of mine go down to the tulum area for their honeymooon and while they were riding around on a moped two guys on motorcycles rode by and snagged her purse and rode off. they chased after them through the city streets and the police saw them and chased after them all. the bandits rode into the jungle but the police conducted a man hunt and found them and returned the purse to my friends. luckily because all their passports and such were in their.

 

they were really impressed with how cooperative the police were and they were even interviewed by the mexican news stations.

 

so i guess not all plice are bad but ive heard many stories of robberies in the hotel rooms and i dont think i would quite trust those safes too much...

Yep, we brought our laptop with us to Mexico so we could hook it up for the reception and play music from it. BIG MISTAKE!

 

I wasn’t completely dumb though and I bought a laptop combination lock and attached it to the bed. The second day I knew someone was screwing with it because the numbers were not on 0-0-0-0 anymore and it was lose. SO I hid it up in the closet and covered the lock & laptop up with blankets. Never had anyone find it there but either the maids left our patio open or someone else tried to get in.

 

Please leave all valuables at home!!! It’s not worth it.

Is anyone else freaked about all the theft that goes on at the resorts in Mexico. I've been reading reviews on Tripadvisor about various Riu resorts in Mexico and there are several guests who have had things stolen from their room. It's not just money or jewelry, it's clothes, makeup....you name it. I would feel really bad if I my guests had items stolen from their room. It doesn't seem fair that they lock up all of their goods and padlock the closet but that may be the only guarantee that stuff doesn't go missing.

 

Should I stop reading the reviews and focus on the positives? I know people are more likely to complain than give a positive review.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
