1 hour connection in San Salvador (SAL)--any tips?

Jump to last reply

In February, we are flying to San Jose, Costa Rica with a connecting flight in San Salvador.

We only have 57 minutes to make our connecting flight. (We arrive at 7:33 am and leave at 8:30 am). Both flights are TACA.

Presumably, we'll have to clear immigration, collect our bags, clear customs, recheck our bags, and clear security and still get on the plane before it closes its doors.

Is this correct, and is it possible to manage this in such a short period of time? Any suggestions?
