seems like you picked a pretty nice place!

Packing advice is

http://gomexico.about.com/cs/familyv...cking_list.htm

I would make sure you bring a couple of waterproof disposable cameras

water slippers sunscreen and a good pair of sunglasses with a neck strap
Make sure you bring a supply of dollar bills to tip with.
You may want to pick up snorkels and masks before you go down so you have
your own stuff. I would not bother buying fins myself.

if you do go snorkeling I usually wear a white t shirt to avoid getting a
sunburned back!

I believe it is South of Cancun in Riviera Maya and was told the resort is
very nice.

I highly recommend lots of strong waterproof sunblock, at least 15,
and some good aloe-based burn lotion or gel. I'm rather light-skinned
and I ruined my first trip to the Carribean by getting very sunburned
the first day.


Yes Im very light skinned as well and don't tan easily.....so am VERY
aware of preparing for the sun. Like you I don't want to ruin my
vacation down there.

I will most certainly have sun block, lip balm, hats, sun glasses.
But what should I use to cover back of my neck? Ideas on that?

Also some beach socks or old sneakers since there can be coral in the
swimming areas.


Can you please explain what water shoes are? I already have Tevo
sandals. Will those work?

Any more ideas on other practical stuff to pack? Im starting an excel
list of stuff.

Thanks Wayne. Well I just picked it out of this air basically. I sure
didn't do much research. I was running out of time to book something
as my nephew only has a 6 week span of time to go somewhere as he will
be starting college in late July.

Anyway....I just "went for it". LOL

sunburned back!


Good idea on wearing a white Tshirt while snorkeling.

Straws

In Mexico the straws are paper and very small
This sounds like a stupid idea I know but 99 cents for a pack of straws sure
helps the Pina Colada go down.

People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did, but
people will never forget how you made them feel.

An insulated water bottle. Things will get warm really fast, so you
want something big and insulated to put water, soda, etc in.

Some kind of hat or head covering.

Athletic shoes, I have met lots of people on beach vacations who don't
take athletic shoes, and then decide they want to play hard court
volleyball, or some other sport, and don't have any real shoes. If you
have cloth (not leather) that you don't mind getting wet, those are good
for all kinds of stuff.

Incredible!

Is this true? I should take some straws with me?
