We traveled down to the DR a few weeks ago to do our wedding site visit and in the airport on the way home, I noticed a sign that said you were not allowed to have the following in your carry-ons:
Scissors (any size)
Creams (more than 3 ounces)
Liquids (more than 3 ounces)
I had tweezers and nail clippers in my bag but was still able to get through. But the following week I traveled to El Salvador for work and they inspected everyone's bag at the gate and took my tweezers, so I guess this must be some Central America/Caribbean restriction? Did anyone else have a problem with this??
