Shipping formula & diapers to hotel?

We are heading to San Juan with our 4 month old. She drinks premixed special formula so buying it there is not an option. We wouldn't have to worry about crazy shipping costs because we would have them shipped directly from the company and we have a deal. I can't imagine packing a whole extra suitcase for them but is that what people do?

They sell baby formula and disposable diapers in Puerto Rico. Is your baby on a special diet?

Premixed liquid formulas are sold in pharmacies (CVS, Walgreens etc. ) And supermarkets, unless it is a very special one of a kind formula. Same with disposable diapers.

Call a pharmacy near your hotel and inquire to see if they have the specific formula you need. There are Walgreens in every other corner, so you should be able to find one easily. Bring some with you just in case. Otherwise, call your hotel to find out what would be the best way of arranging for this shipment.

Diapers you can find anywhere, but bring some for the first couple of days.

Jennifer. The USPS delivers to PR. Shipping costs are the same as the states. UPS and FedEx are higher. You would need to contact the Concierge at the hotel you are staying at for shipping addresses..
