Just returned from Roatan yesterday and had the surprise that my new Sony digital camera was gone. Stolen from my carry-on , at the Roatan Airport . I was told by an security person that I had to check my carry-on, which I did.
It's sad that the Roatan Airport employees are stealing from tourist's luggage.
I called Continental and hoping that they will reimburse the value of my stolen camera. What they cannot reimburse is the value of the hundreds of pictures taken on the island.
If you have to check you carry-on , remove all the expensive items and take them with you on the plane in a small bag. You will feel more safer this way.
