On our last day in Costa Rica the taxi picked us up at 4:00 AM. We got to the airport at 4:30. When we got there we stood in line for about 15 to pay for our airport tax of $29 each. (everyone pays this). We could have prepaid the tax for $3.00 extra at the hotel in San Jose, but they were out of forms. After we filled out the form, we got in line to check in. My line was long as I had a soccer team in front of me that had several large boxes to check in. After check in, I had to go into another line to check my passport. After that, there was one more line to get through security. The line went fast. They didn’t check for liquids at this point. However, right before you boarded the plane, they checked your suitcase for liquids. The airport is not huge, so it wasn’t too far to the gate. When they called our zone we walked outside to get onto a bus that took us to our plane. More than one bus was filled to get people to it. Everyone boarded orderly and the plane left on time. I didn’t get home until 12:30 AM. I had arranged for the Super Shuttle to take me home. The ride is $35 and well worth it. I was lucky to be the first dropped off. I was glad to be home and very happy that I had made many good friends along the way. I was also glad that I didn't have to use any of the Imodium that the travel clinic recommend I take with me.
