Posting baby food to the hotel


I was wondering if any parents of infants had ever posted baby food parcels over to their destination hotel prior to traveling to save on baggage weight?

We are going to Grand Sirenis Mayan Beach Hotel in Mexico in June with a 10mth old.

Any advice or experience on the matter (or on the hotel itself) greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't. What if it gets delayed or lost? You would only need to pay the excess baggage 1 way.

You can buy baby food there. Just take a taxi to the nearby Walmart or Chedrow (sp?) market.

We also would buy it there, except there are so many vegetable options to be able to mash them up, we never needed to buy any anyway. Lots of options for little ones, veggies, pasta, rice, etc.

Although you've already made your decision (and a smart one, IMHO), I'd add that the Mexican postal service is notoriously bad .... and I mean REALLY bad. Courier/private delivery services (e.g. Fed Ex) are more reliable but horrifically expensive.
