Rohan Myers, 39, confessed to carrying more than 6.5 pounds of the drug concealed in long-legged compression pants he was wearing under his clothes.
Officials became suspicious after the Caribbean Airlines crew member landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport from Montego Bay, Jamaica, last month.
Myers reportedly became "very nervous" and started sweating when customs officials searched his luggage and asked about a pair of athletic compression pants in one bag.
"I have cocaine on me, I'm supposed to take it to the hotel," Myers confessed as he was escorted off to be searched, reported The Sun Sentinel.
Authorities then discovered four packages of the drug that had been duct-taped to his thighs and ankles.
