My wife and I and about 8 other people will be showing up at Banana Beach on Jan 3 for a week. I will be fishing every day except one for at least 1/2 day. Mostly full days. I am a bartering kind of fool and want to see if anyone does in kind. What kind of supplies can I bring to trade for trips, tips and ???? other goodies while enjoying this paradise? Especially you fishing guys, can we work out a deal for a suitcase full of lures, etc? There's a Bass Pro shop just down the road in Nashville from me. Please let me know. Also, Kentucky has some awful good bourbon. How much booze can I bring in per person?

San Pedro is not much on bartering. Customs agents will be suspicious to find anything beyond what your trip will require and could start your vacation badly.

Gone fishing!!

I agree with Bill's answer. You run the very real risk of having your suitcases, etc., searched as you go through customs once arriving.

The fishing guides have pretty much everything they need and I don't know of a single guide that barters... cash is the only mode of payment that I know of on the island.

However, if you insist on going with the supplies you mentioned, be prepared to have it all confiscated at the airport.

Okay, Nuff said. I guess that's out, but if I didn't ask I wouldn't know. You're right about the prices, I was amazed and that's why I went from 2 days of fishing to almost every day.
Thanks, y'all
