I'm a US citizen and resident who will be traveling in Mexico later this month. The first half of the trip will be in a luxury rental in a beach town; the second half will be an "adventure travel" tour on sea kayaks in the Sea of Cortez. I'm flying in and out of Mexico from different airports.
I'd like to have my laptop computer with me for the first half of the trip, but not the second - I don't want it to get wet, don't want the weight, and we'll be off the grid anyway.
Would it be reasonable to ship it back to my home address? Are there customs issues I need to be aware of?
There are one or two similar questions, but don't seem to address high-value items like a laptop computer. And I would of course leave multiple backups of the data behind.
