How to survive the flight to Playa del Carmen?
If you’re not prepared, traveling can be overwhelming. But there’s no need to hit the panic button just yet. Follow these handy tips and enjoy a stress-free start to your time in Playa del Carmen.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • A plane trip can be a pleasure if you carry the right gear. First things first, you’ll need basic toiletries, such as lip balm and hand cream, a clean pair of socks and a good book. Secondly, find room in your hand luggage for your mobile phone, a charger, your medications and perhaps a proper neck pillow as well. Lastly, and most importantly, don’t forget to take your passport, travel documents and some money.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Double-check that you don’t have sharp objects (like a pocket knife) hiding in one of the zippers of your carry-on luggage. Other restricted items include flammable or explosive goods, such as fuel and fireworks, and gels and liquids in containers larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your aim here is to make yourself as comfortable as possible. Layer yourself up in natural-fiber clothing and bring a pullover just in case you get cold. Go for a pair of well-fitting, flat shoes as it’s possible that your feet and ankles will swell a little during the journey. Leave the high heels and heavy boots in your checked luggage.
  • It’s likely you’ve heard about deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot condition caused by reduced mobility or inactivity. There are many ways to reduce your risk. Wear a pair of compression socks or tights, drink lots of water and remember to keep your legs and feet moving. Do a few laps of the cabin or perform some stretches in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Playa del Carmen?
Being prepared before you get to the airport will make your getaway to Playa del Carmen a piece of cake. Check out our handy tips for a stress-free journey past security:

  • First things first. Your passport and boarding pass will need to be shown to airport security personnel. Keep them handy so you don’t hold up the queue.
  • Next up, both you and your hand luggage must be X-rayed. To speed things up, remove anything that might set the alarms off. Items like your belt, coat and earphones will be required to go through the machine.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from technology. Your tablet, phone and any other electronic gadgets must also be sent through the scanner.
  • Traveling with a new perfume? As long as the volume is no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear zip-lock bag, it’s OK to bring with you in your carry-on baggage.
  • Slip-on shoes are a sensible footwear choice as you’re less likely to have to remove them when passing through security. Big boots and other heavy shoes are usually subjected to extra screening.
  • Sharp or pointed items are not allowed in the cabin. They’ll be confiscated at security, so pack them safely away in your checked bags.
