Can we bring liquor in our suitcases flying from the US?
Yeah you can bring it in your *checked* bags...But I am sure it would be cheaper In MX! There is a liquor store across the street and Walmart there as well.
It is normally cheaper in mexico.
WalMart usually is 10-20% cheaper than any US liquor store and sometimes Duty Free has some pretty good deals. If you just "bring" liquor in without a Duty FREE receipt you might pay a duty or, if you find a thirty customs guy, face confiscation.....
I know a while back we couldn't get Fireball in Cancun, so we would check a half gallon from the US so that we had some for Chinos and others on the Boobs Cruise. Anyone know if fireball is available?
I was just wondering. Can you buy Fireball in MX?
Thought I heard that the resort had it now. I used to bring in Incinerator (91 proof) stuff... I also bring a couple of AIWC.
We bought fireball in Feb at the liquor store across the street from the resort. Think we paid 600 pesos or about $35 for 1L
Yepp you can. Just dont buy it in the resort crazy expensive buy it across the street
You are allowed to bring 2 L in to MX if you can't find it MX
Greg, it's actually 3L "If you are bringing alcohol into Mexico from the U.S., you are allowed to bring up to three liters of liquor or beer and six liters of wine per adult."
Your best bet is to confirm your airport has a duty free, then you can buy it in the airport and carry it on the plane with you instead of weighing down your checked bag. My wife and I normally bring a combination of JD fire, Jagermister, and Fireball bottles. All of these are cheaper/same price in Liter bottles at the states airport departure than they are at the liquor stores (at home and in Mexico) and the duty free on the Mexican side.
Thats right My Rumple bottles are three pounds a piece, I was thinking of when I come back and bring Tequila
So I think each type of liquor may be different. And too often people assume Mexico or duty free will be cheaper.
For example, we did a price compare on our favorite grey goose vodka.
We were able to get a 750 ml bottle in our local pa state store for $27 on sale normally $32.
At the philly airport duty free store it was $39 for a liter. Slightly more expensive even when accounting for the larger bottle.
At Mexico airport duty free store it was mid 40’s.
And at Walmart it wasn’t available.
And across the street it was $40 something for absolut which was just ridiculous.
At the resort in November I was quoted $70something.
End result is if I was getting a common bottle that they have at Mexico Walmart then maybe it is cheaper but don’t assume Mexico or even duty free is always cheaper.
The resort has Fireball now, but they consider it a premium liquor. Lol!
I usually bring a large bottle of Fireball for the cruise in my checked bag. I had one break once. Luckily it wasn’t too bad of a mess. Now I buy and just transfer it to a plastic bottle.
When went in September Fireball is there but is a top shelf item only.
Honestly, duty free is the way to go. That way the alcohol is not taking any needed space in your checked bag. You each get three liters and in the grand scheme of things, you’re only talking about a few bucks difference either way. We always stock up on Crown, Fireball, cognac, and a couple bottles of wine at the duty free. We like to keep the room stocked in case of company. You know southern hospitality and all that.
