"I'm so glad we brought <blank>"

Hey folks, my fiancee and I are making our way to RDC for our honeymoon this week. We're trying to simultaneously sort out the mass confusion of our wedding and finalize the details of the trip. In hopes of getting down to Mexico and avoiding going "DOH", does anyone have a particular item that is quintessential and/or a lifesaver to have along? We're looking for less than obvious things. We'd heard an insulated travel mug is an absolute must, for example.

Once of those travel candles in its own tin, especially this time of year, it can get rid of the musty smell in the room due to high humidity.

Congrats on the wedding. Don't worry about forgetting anything. There are plenty of shops in Bucerias for most anything you forget.

The most important thing I find to travel with is an open mind (and my wife).

Relax, don't sweat the small stuff (and most everything is small stuff) and have a great honeymoon.

Water shoes. The beach near RDC is soft sand, but if you visit another beach and it turns out to be rocky, you'll enjoy it a lot more with something to protect your feet.

Have a great honeymoon.

Don't forget the sunscreen, it is very expensive in Mexico.

I am so glad we brought.... Imodium! While we were never sick, we didn't even feel bad..... we had a little inconvenience, that might have kept us from having as much fun as we did!

Just like those old TV ads where the family went to Hawaii and then had to stay in the hotel room, we were free to enjoy, because we had the *cure* lol

flashlight, it is a lifesaver if the power is out at night. Used ours a few times, people were jealous.

I'm glad we brought tums, cell phone and charger (cell phone was used as an alarm clock. I also agree about the water shoes. I brought a pair strictly for this trip and wore them wheever we ventured into bucerias along the beach.
