2. Do i need the Sea Safe lotion for jelly fish?

3. What is the best bug spray?

4. The trip to Cozumel worth it? i get sea sick, a little worried about that.

5. Is going to Akumal a "must"?

6. What are some "musts"?

1. Re: Lots of Questions for an October trip

I went to Playa in Oct 2 years ago - Loved the trip to Cozomel, I get REALLY motion sick but had the Dr prescribe motion sick patches and was completly fine for both the ferry ride and the snorkle trip. ( Did the same in May last year- no problems)

Only other answer I have is careful with the Debit Card- Banks pass on the fee Visa charges to convert currency. This is usually 2-3 % of transaction. Same to use an ATM in Mexico. We took some travelers cheques, but mostly cash. Make sure your hotel has an in room safe and it is no big deal. LOTS of ones! No large bills, it is hard to get change.
