Sometimes, there is no hard and fast rule. I wouldn't risk going over the 5 kilo limit myself.

Diva:

I wonder how you will get on with Thomson? Are you travelling down and checking in the day before?

Sorry to butt in - Yes we are doing day before check-in Bellagio.

I did it last year when we went to Mexico and it worked really well. Nice to get rid of all the bags before heading off the the hotel for the night.

I expect Diva will be along later to confirm this too. She is probably out 'Cuban Shopping' :)

When we left Santa Clara airport on 15th Sept they weighed some peoples hand luggage but not others. The people in front of us had to pay 20 pesos per kilo over. Ours were not weighed but we only had 3 bags of hand luggage for 5 people so they probably guessed we would be under.

bellagio, as rosentim said we are checking in the day before.

We should be OK, we are both going to be over I think in hand luggage. The thing is if we are caught we are both prepared to put hands up and pay up.

This being said a lot will be around our bodies , just in case.

You joke , but yes that sort of thing, wear layers of clothes, pockets are full of camera, purse and the like. Heavy stuff that then gets put in bag at security.
