What to Pack

Be sure to pack a waterproof Bluetooth speaker, bug spray, sunscreen, headache medicine, stomach medicine, feminine products, shaving cream/razors, and all necessities– the hotel’s gift shop are VERY expensive.

Airline Mileage

If you have a Delta Skymiles number, please provide it to us. If you have an AAdvantage number, please login to your itinerary and add this number online. We want to be sure that you’re getting credited for mileage for this trip!

Verify your Itinerary & Room Category

Please locate your original travel documents by searching for emails from Just Book It Travel. Give your travel documents a second set of eyes and if you would like to upgrade your room category, please let us know as soon as possible. It is your vacation!

Flight Seats

Please login directly to the airliner ( or ( by clicking “Manage My Trips” and using the confirmation number found on your original booking confirmation to change your seats or coordinate seating arrangements near your friends and family. If you are interested in upgrading to Comfort Plus or First Class, please let us know as soon as possible.

Flight Times & Flight Alerts

Airlines are constantly changing their flight schedules to meet changing demands. It is possible that your originally booked flight time has changed. When you login to the airliner, please setup text or email alerts so that you are aware of any time or gate changes.

Included Airport Transportation

Shared transfers are included in all Mexico all-inclusive destinations. If you would prefer to upgrade to private transfers, please let us know as soon as possible. If you booked your flight separately, please send us your flight confirmation and itinerary so that we can arrange your included transfers. If this is not received, you may be responsible for securing a taxi.

Restaurant Dress Code

Most of the luxury all-inclusive resorts have a ‘casual elegance’ or ‘formal’ evening dress code at certain restaurants. We like to think of it as ‘Vegas Nights’. This requires men to wear long pants, collar and/or polo shirts. T-shirts, tank tops, shorts, beach sandals, and flip flops are typically not allowed at certain dinner restaurants. Dress codes for restaurants are posted on our hotel's websites or on the resort’s website. 

Check In Time

Check-In time is usually 3:00 pm, but if you arrive before check-in,  you can use the complementary luggage service to store your luggage and gain immediate access to all of the resort’s pools, beaches, restaurants and other amenities right away. We recommend packing beach clothes in your carry-on luggage so that you can head straight to the beach! Our best advice is to be very nice at check-in and ask if they can accommodate an earlier room, but it’s never a guarantee!

Check Out Time

Check out time is usually 12:00 pm. If your flight departs later, you can arrange to have your luggage stored and spend as much time as possible beside the sea, soaking up the sun. Make sure that you check-out on time to prevent any extra charges. Some hotels offer a so-called "Late Check-Out" subject to availability, so you can keep your room longer, however, additional charges may apply. Please check on this directly with the hotel.


Gratuity/Tips are not required, but highly recommended. We recommend guests to support the local economy by tipping, as wages in Mexico are relatively low. We recommend $1 per drink, $5 at dinner, and $5 per night for maid service. Feel free to be as generous as you’d like and give what’s on your heart at all times. Keep an eye out on the exchange rate when tipping in Pesos - $20 Pesos is NOT $20. (If you leave the resort, please use standard U.S. tipping guidelines - 20% at restaurants)

Brides & Grooms of destination weddings -  be sure to tip your local wedding planner(s) 😊


The Mexican Peso is the legal currency in Mexico but most merchants accept U.S. Dollars, and major credit cards, i.e. VISA®, MasterCard® and some also accept American Express®. Small shops will only accept cash (USD or Pesos) Most hotels have an ATM inside the resort. Check the current exchange rate here. We recommend that if you plan to convert cash, check with your local banking institution as sometimes the airport can include convenience charges for currency conversion. Also, currency conversion is not a requirement – we’ve never experienced USD rejection!

Safe Deposit Boxes

Most resorts have safe deposit boxes in each room. We recommend storing passports, computers, jewelry, cash, and wallets in these secure areas. 

Wifi Coverage and Internet Access

Complimentary unlimited WIFI is available throughout the property. 

Cell Phone Coverage 

Contact your service provider and provide them with your dates of travel and destination. Most providers are allowing unlimited data and phone calls, but you have to call them and initiate the request or you’ll be charged.

Special Needs

If you have any special needs or special requests, please let us know. If it is something that you’ll need upon arrival, we can connect you with a concierge.

Medical Staff

Each resort has an on-site clinic for medical emergencies. Be sure to travel with your health insurance card in the event of travel emergencies. 


Feel free to book your spa appointment upon arrival. Ask about any specials as well!


Ask us about excursion suggestions, we are happy to help!
