1. salt and pepper shakers
resorts don't always have them, and for the amount you'll use over a week, not worth buying
2. complete pancake mix (only needs water)
makes a nice hearty breakfast when you tire of local cereals, can reheat them in toaster oven easily
3. sugar and coffee
only size sugar available at supermarket was 2 kilo bag. overkill! The maids got lots of supplies from us! Local coffee is great, but if you want it on the 1st morning, go shopping on arrival or bring it from home.
Couldn't find it in any of 3 grocery stores in Mazatlan. Easy to mix with any brand of ketchup and lemon for awesome cocktail sauce when getting local shrimp.
