"Cameras" Cabo San Lucas Packing List Tip by themayocynic

Cabo San Lucas What to Pack: 16 reviews and 12 photos

Photo Equipment: Only one photography camera and one video camera per person. I had my digital camera, a lomo and two holgas. I got pulled over, my bags searched and questioned. If my holgas weren't obvious "toy" cameras (The airport official commented,"Oh, not too expensive, this one" when the back of my holga came off), I think I would have been there for a little longer. Plus, because we were travelling with friends who wanted me to take their engagement photos there, I had a lot of film (the limit was 12, I had 15). Airport official didn't like that either. Always check for any limits on things you may be bringing a lot of. I'm not a professional photographer. Professionals have their own list of limits. I don't think four disposable cameras would have been any problem though. In the end, I got lectured about how he's going to "respect" my $300 tourist allowance or whatever it's called and was let go.
