Why bother, you can buy all of those items down here and save yourself the trouble of lugging them around. The XM radio won't be a problem.

Actually, LJ, none of those items should be a problem, nor should you need to pay duty on them. You can purchase most, if not all, there - although not necessarily the brands you want - but they will run you quite a bit more and who wants to spend vacation time shopping? The other option is to make your list and let Simon shop for you and have it all waiting there for you. Still more expensive, but does save lots of time. Simon's service is great!

Enjoy your trip! smile

LJ, we had room in our luggage to carry some breakfast and snack food items and had no problem with it. I even carried the ready to bake chocolate chip cookies...which smelled great baking...and cheeses in a small insulated bag. We didn't have to shop for those items after getting there and it was there when we were! It was an easy way for us to have some of the things we knew that we wanted. We were staying close to town and grocery shopped there, too, but often had to go to several stores to find what we needed/wanted and sometimes made do with what we found. No one complained! Have fun.
