    Dzs of places including Pricesmart selling security camera systems, really hot item here nowadays, doubt confiscation is an issue, taxation would be my concern.

    Aduanas took them away from the traveler. Maybe the person couldn’t pay the duty, I don’t know. I’m still slightly surprised that people think it’s worthwhile to schlepp crap from America than to buy in Nicaragua. The sticker price is only the beginning.

    Likely did not declare it, can bring in up to $500 worth of stuff new in box every 6 months I believe it is, have your receipts and story in order.

    They put a stamp in the back of your passport, no big deal.

    Well that was fascinating

    About 5 acres of containers - A cacophony of activity as Jamaicans, North africans, Nigerians et al were stuffing containers.

    In one it was piled to the top and the back door was open and a ladder placed as a fellow stuffed one more suitcase as (assumed) his wife commanded on.

    Our fellow showed up (late) and directed us to his holding container - It was stuffed with fridges, bikes, treadmills, Tube TVs, flat TVs, drywall steps, Dewalt tools, mitresaws et all.

    A bargaining session proceeded where a price was agreed upon (2 of our boxes were oversized)

    He commented he was the lightest skinned man there.

    Everything was placed and a receipt was written.

    The box should leave Wed.

    I assume he has an in with Aduna as all of this can not get in, at the price he charges, without that line.

    He said he sent down a Nissan Versa last year for $2K US all fees in with the shipping.

    It all is under my BIL's celdula.
