Next, Miami International Airport has really improved their security service. The last two times we've flown through MIA the security lines have been very short. One surprise: a security staff took out a hand magnifying glass to check my passport. Didn't see him do it for anyone else. Gosh, I get special treatment.
The hotel we spent our night in San Jose at had beautiful gardens and great rooms. As I expected though, the hotel was in suburban San Jose--no chance to get to the city center in the short time we were there. Oh well, that just means we need another trip to Costa Rica.
