Either of you stay at the Ritz?
Stayed at the Ritz end of Feb. They do charge you $25 for a fridge per day. Anything else you want to know?

Have a trip planned for a couple of days. Outrageous resort fees plus $25 a day for microwave and fridge is crazy!
Any issue bringing in cooked vaccum packed meat? Won't have any labels..

Meat shouldn't be a problem in normal quantities.

Don't see much info about car rentals. With free parking at hotels and the cheap rates, I would pay the same price for a few day rental as I'd pay for a two way taxi trip from the airport to the hotel.
I'm aware of the "international license fee" so if be paying like an extra $20
Are there any mandatory insurances or hidden fees that would be forced on me at the counter? Currently have a reservation at Alamo.

I didn't rent a car, so not familiar. But keep in mind that they drive on the left side. Also, depending if you wanna do a lot of your own exploring or not, most jet ski, boat tours etc. Pick you up from hotel, and the buses on the main roads are like $2.
