Transit time in Miami including Immigration??

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will returning from San Jose, Costa Rica connecting through Miami for a flight to Boston. American Airlines for all flights. I have read that immigration and customs can take quite a bit of time (we are both US citizens if that makes any difference) and then collecting luggage to be re-checked to Boston.

We have a choice of a 1 hour 30 minute layover or almost 3 hours. Can we do the 1 1/2 hours or should we play it safe and go for the 3??
