This was out fourth trip to the DR and until now we had no problems at the Punta Cana Airport. I just want to share this experience with everyone so that they may know how to act if faced with a similar situation.
We (eight of us) were going through the metal detector and one of the security guards told me that he wanted to talk to me in five minutes. I thought nothing of it; but he actually hunted me down in the airport and asked to speak with me. He asked me to leave my family and go with him to talk. I did follow him to a point where I noticed that I did not see any security cameras, so I immediately stopped and returned to an area where I saw security cameras. He wanted me to follow him farther and I refused. This area I refer to is on the connection bridge between terminal one and terminal two (air conditioned and non-air-conditioned). There may be security cameras there; but I did not see any.
Anyway, he asked me how much money I had on me. I thought that was weird and threw out a figure. He told me that it was too much money to have and that he will have to investigate. I immediately asked to see his supervisor and said out-loud and he can not have any of my money.
The conversation immediately came to a close and I saw this security guard no more.
I realize that there are a million was to handle this situation; but this is what happened with me.
Once again, this was out fourth trip to the DR and until now we had no problems at the Punta Cana Airport. I just want to share this experience with everyone so that they may know how to act if faced with a similar situation. Hopefully you are not placed into a similar situation.
