Packing List Guidelines


When packing for your Cancun vacation, be sure to prepare your checked luggage and carry-on luggage properly. This will help avoid delays at the airport and will make security check-in a breeze.

Packing List Guidelines
Know the 3-1-1 rule. This rule applies to CARRY ON luggage. You can have your liquids and gels in 3 ounce bottles (no bigger).  All of your 3 oz. bottles need to fit inside 1 Quart-size zip lock bag. Each traveler is allowed 1 zip lock per carry on luggage only.

Now that you know the 3-1-1 rule, let’s start packing!

First, check out our Packing List. Next, let’s prepare for the flight.  Here are some great travel tips:

1. Wear slip-on sandals that are easy off and on. This can save a ton of time while you remove and replace your shoes at the airport security.

2. Bring a word puzzle or book.  3 hours or more on a flight is a lot of time to kill.

3. Bring a travel pillow and blanket or jacket. The inside temp is difficult to control. On one flight I was freezing, and on the next I was sweating. Be prepared for both.

4. Wear layers. This way you can remove your jacket or sweater when you arrive to the much warmer climates of Mexico.

5. Bring earbuds to listen to the in-flight videos, weather & movies.
