Help - How much time do we need to transfer flights in San Jose

Input would be greatly appreciated, as I am in a panic!!!!!! We have a flight from Quepos to San Jose and then San Jose to the states. We only have 1 hour in San Jose to get to state bound flight. Is this enough time or should I change our flights from Quepos to San Jose. I am planning this trip for 10 of us and I have been the planner. I think I really messed up. It is one thing to mess up on your own travel, but a totally different feeling messing up on your friends. Please let me know ASAP, as if necessary I need to change our flights. We are leaving in 2 1/2 weeks. PLEASE HELP

Thank you in advance

No! One hour is not enough time. Sorry, this can be a common error so don't beat yourself up, just get it changed.

Couple questions? What domestic airline are you using? Sansa or Nature Air?
AND what time is your International Flight?

Nature Air is say 45 mins from SJO, Sansa is at SJO, but still a ways to the International termninal.

Allow a minumum of 2 hours and more like 3 hours is becoming the norm.

And it may even be that you need to spend your final night in SJ.

Thank you so much for your information. We are flying Sansa and our homebound flights are continental and delta. Our home bound flights are at 12:30pm. and our flight arrives in San Jose at 11:25. Please keep your fingers crossed that I can change these flights.

Thank you so much

Just responded to your previous post and see that you're coming soon! In the off season and with the weather patterns, you'll need the earlier flight so repost and let us know if you're able to change that flight. Sansa's pretty good about it if the flight is avail but with a passenger capacity of 12 on the Sansa flight, your group just about takes up all the seats. Another option is if they'll refund your money ... try to charter a private plane to take you back to San Jose. With a group that size, it's a good option. If you'd like some charter contacts, please repost or email. Lisa in Manuel Antonio
