What I have learned

Thank you to everyone on here...I hardly needed to ask a question since most of you already had them answered thru the search function. I have learned:

1) It will rain....all day every day

2) The streets are filled will drug smugglers who will kill me shortly after I land

3) Use neither pesos or dollars but ancient spanish doubloons are widely accepted

4) Thimble jelly fish will kill me seconds after contact

5) Never tip...the resort staff are all independtly wealthy and do their job because they love us so much...if you must tip the maids love american coins neatly stacked in a row.

Did I miss anything? Thanks again!

Yes. Chairs. There are no chairs on the beach nor at the pool. Bring your own.

Also, bring your own towel because Mexico doesn't have towels.

The food will kill you.

What did I miss?

You have to wait more than five minutes to get a drink

Take an empty suitcase because the people at the airport will steal all your things

Brush your teeth with only bottled water. As stated above swallow a little water, instant death!

Don't bother organising time for housekeeping and turn down as staff turn up whenever they want!
