Arrival And Departure Frequently asked Questions
Your next stop is Customs. If you have two bags or less you can usually just walk on through. For those with more than two bags there is an area where you must push a button. if after pushing the button, the light turns green, proceed on through Customs. If the light turns red, you will have your luggage examined. (note: Customs can check any bag or individual they desire.)
After passing through Customs, take the stairs on the right which will bring you to the airport exit (note: there is a conveyer belt on your right-hand side to transport heavy pieces of luggage upstairs). Have your baggage claim tags ready because the baggage handlers at the top of the stairs will often ask to see them (you should have received the tags from the airline during check-in: they are normally stapled onto your ticket envelope).
Finally, you can step out into the light of Costa Rica. The whole process should take less than a half an hour.
