Errors in geography 

The episode supposedly takes place in the U.S. Virgin Islands, but during the end scene when the car is parachuting out of the plane, below we see a flat, almost barren landscape. Nothing at all what a tropical island looks like.

Factual errors

Early in the episode, MacGyver says that Catlin is untouchable and can't be arrested. While this would be true in other parts of the Caribbean, since the episode takes place in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Catlin could easily be arrested by federal law enforcement (FBI or U.S. Marshals), as it the Virgin Islands are still part of the United States.

One can't pick a door lock one handed; two prongs (one in each hand) are needed to manipulate the lock's tumbler to get it to open.

When MacGyver was trying to defeat the laser barrier in Catlin's room he uses a plastic tube. But as soon as he put one end of plastic tube into a laser hole it should have broken the electric beam and triggered the alarm. But it didn't.
