So, I’m going to spend a week at a resort somewhere in the vicinity of the mayan riviera in Mexico next week. I don’t know exactly where - a friend set it all up. He’s decided to take all of the people who have been important to him down there for a week, to celebrate his birthday. While he’s been a good friend for almost 20 years, oddly enough I don’t know a single other one of his friends. Heh. A week in Mexico with a bunch of people I don’t know. Ought to be fun.
But, I almost never take trips that last more than three days, and I haven’t been to Mexico in almost 20 years.
What should I take?
I’m a light traveller - if it won’t fit into one carry-on, it’s not goin’. Although it’s February, I’m thinking I can probably not worry about taking any real cold weather jacket. Jeans, T-shirts, shorts, swimming trunks, gimme cap, sneakers (are they still called that?) and loafers make up the apparel manifest. Can you imagine any need for a dress shirt or dress pants? I do need to take a prescription drug with me, but I’ll check out the ins-and-outs of that with the Mexican Consulate here.
Does anybody have any tricks, tips or mentions of other necessary items they’d care to offer?
