Most of our participants travelled together and entered customs as a group. Apparently it overwhelmed the customs
officials who ended up confiscating most all the equipment putting it in lock-up. It took 3 days of negotiations
(using greenbacks) to get it back. That's why we had a late start for the island.
I happened to travel individually and although I had lots of questions during the customs inspection, I was allowed to
pass with everything in hand.
