So, if your room doesn't have a safe what does one do with their valuables such as cameras, iPods, cash,traveler checks, etc... when just hanging around town or snorkeling?

I'm concerned about keeping all my eggs in one basket(backpack) and something happening to it?


Thanks!

Pat

Most hotels have safes. Ask them if they would allow you to store those things there......

I agree with clover, most resorts have office safes. Of course, since there is absolutely no place to wear any valuables on the caye, you might also want to consider leaving them at home.

I'd carry my camera everywhere, you never know when that one shot will appear. Leave the iPod at home, take cash with and not leave it anywhere. eek

Agreed. The advice on the board was great before our most recent trip. We carried small wallets with us on our bodies at all times, and our cameras were always arouns our necks. Touristy, yes. safe, oh, yeah!

Don't forget to copy your passports and keep them separate from the rest of your luggage!!

I took color photocopies of our passports with us. Anyplace we cashed a TC they were fine with the copies. Left the passports in room/hotel safe.

One other way, is to travel, using a Pelican Case, by the way we are the largest Distributer in the South East USA.
The case is guarenteed for life, and is 100% waterproof, hard shell, and 2 places to put real locks on with stainless steel protectors to keep from breaking.. I travel with a Model 1560,which has wheels, and pull up handle, big enough to carry most of my stuff, and can lock it up in the room when out. Have no problem with this size as carry-on, so far. They make over 30 sizes, from small enough to fit digital cameras, to very large to put diving equipment in. I sell a lot to the Military and aerospace, since it protects all. Go on and contact me by my e-mail address.
Use the e-mail under my name or contact me, if interested. I works for me, and love it.

Actually, I do have a couple of Pelican cases. What about when snorkeling, where do you keep all your cash, passports, etc...?

some hotels will keep your stuff at the front desk or in the hotel safe. write down what you give them & have them sign it. CYA.

and, when getting around, don't forget to keep your money & stuff dry in ZIPLOCS!!!

Pat, I keep them locked up in my luggage, which is a Pelican 1560 case. Hard for someone to walk out of a room with your big case, and not be noticed.
Sweet Jane, try a Pelican mini case. good for life.
1010 to a 1060 Pelican case.
We have in stock, as well as all other Pelican Cases. That is my business.
