There has been a lot of discussion here on Wetpixel about losing equipment while travelling through Puerto Rico's Luis MuÃ±oz Marin International Airport (SJU) in San Juan. We have received confirmation that thieves at the airport are continuing to target both topside and underwater camera gear in checked baggage. If you travel with expensive gear, please use caution when deciding on a route that goes through Puerto Rico. I myself decided some time ago that I will not fly through Puerto Rico again until the crime ring is caught.
Do you not have insurance?
I know it is not the same, but if you are carting around $20k worth of gear, surely you would have it?!
