We are leaving for Barbados in a few days, and going for 10 weeks. We made the decision to bring our beach chairs and leave them with friends for next year. It cost 10 U.S. to rent a chair that you cannot move and it cost $20 to bring down the chairs. So in my opinion because we are on the beach everyday, it makes more sense to pay to bring them, even if we bring that back with us, we are still saving money. A bit of a pain but well worth it.
