    Can you take alcohol down to Mexico?? We are staying in a non AI resort so we thought if we could we'd take a bottle of wine with us just to make sure we have something that is good and inexpensive to drink in the room on our first night there...

    I know you can bring something like 2 liters back into the country but I've never thought about taking alcohol into Mexico...

    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

    I know you can check in wine because we brought some back from Napa after our wedding. You can't take it on board with you though, it has to be checked.

      I remember Edyta saying that she and Terry brought Champagne to Cabo with them to celebrate.

        K. I'm thinking if we put it in our luggage then we should be ok. But then again, it's red wine - what if it breaks? lol, that would be a story to tell...

            We brought a bottle of champagne back from a wedding in mexico that was right on the texas border. My grandma declaired it when we crossed the border & had to pay tax on it.

              Do we have to declare it? Hmmm, I hate customs - I always feel guilty! lol

                I know Jaime already left but you can bring 3 liters of alcohol or wine in your luggage to Mexico.. I would just advise to use bubble plastic and a bag just in case!!!

                    Thanks Mora - we have a bottle of champagne we've been saving, and I've been thinking about bringing it with us!
