When you check in at San Juan Airport, (whether or not you already printed a boarding pass or not) -- you must have luggage screened by the USDA (United States Agriculture Dept.)-- it is about in the middle area across from check in desks (close to Continental) - they send the bags you will be checking thru a HUGE airline scanner. Then slap an approved sticker on each bag. Only took us a few minutes (but we did travel on Monday.) THEN you can proceed to self check-in kiosks or regualr line. If you get to desk and do not have stickers on--you must start over.
