Hi! 🙂  Did you ever get an answer on this or end up shipping anything to Mexico?  I’m trying to find out the same thing now to ship wedding favors and such.



Smiles to you 🙂

@ItsAForeverThing:  I was looking into this resort for a vacation, not a Destination Wedding. But I read A LOT of reviews on tripadvisor.com about theft from their hotel rooms. From locked suitecases and locked safes. So I don’t know if I would trust them to hold on to anything. Hopefully someone on here has a real experience with them that ended better.

@yellowshoe:  When were you reading these reviews?  I was recently looking on tripadvisor for this location and didn’t see any mention of theft.

@ReyDar64:  I’d suggest checking with your hotel, as they should have some suggestions.  When we looked into this for Cabo, we realized that we couldn’t really guarantee that items would arrive on time and not get stuck in customs or there could be additional charges/duties that would need to be paid to be cleared to get them to your hotel.  Some hotels won’t hold the items, so double check with your hotel first and ask how much it would be if they will hold your items.  I have heard some bad stories about what has happened when brides tried to mail items, so we didn’t do this.  Instead, the items went in the suitcases, but customs stopped them at the airport and everyone had to explain the situation (that the items weren’t being sold in their country and were favors and such) and then they cleared the luggage.  Items like candles and certain decorations can just be purchased when you arrive at your destination.  Good luck!

Here are some tips that will help you:

My advice is to ship you items 2 weeks before the needed delivery date at the resort. Consider the delivery date as a couple of days prior to your arrival at the resort.

There are 3 ways to ship your boxes:

1. Taking them in your luggage:  Each country has a list of allowed articles that can be imported as personal luggage.  Basically your contents must make sense with the lenght of your trip. For example it wouldn’t make sense to take 23 towels in a 5 day trip.  

2. Send them through FedEx, DHL or UPS (International Courier Companies): My advice is to use these companies only if you are shipping paper made products.  If you shipment has a total value of more than $1,000 usd, then most probably you will be requested to have an import license in Mexico (or any given country). There are other “sensitive” products for customs. I’m listing them beneath.

3. Use a Logistics company and/or Customs Broker: These companies take care of all the logistics from USA up to the delivery at the event site. Also, a Logistics company can advice you what is the best way to take your products.

Sensitive Products considered by customs:

Candles, Food (including snacks), Natural Finish Wood, Flowers, Wine and Spirits, First Aid Kit (including any kind of medicines), Repellent, Sea shells.

Have a nice day!!
