TSA Pre Check

Does anyone know if SJD accommodates TSA Pre Check? just wondering if it's worth it? If there's no separate line then I would guess not. Our last trip to Cabo was in May 2011 and the lines to get checked in we're CRAZY LONG. They searched everything inch by inch by hand....we almost missed our flight out even though we were there 3 hours early. We swore we would never check bags for Cabo again but alas we are checking a bag this time again since we are traveling with our 2 year old. I'm just wondering what to expect when we fly out of Cabo this time around. Thanks.

TSA is a US government agency and Pre-Check does not work in Cabo. It also does not affect any inspection of checked luggage anywhere. It is very good for getting back thru security if you have to catch a connecting flight after customs on your way home.

We love it. Keep shoes on, don't take liquids out, keep computer in bag. And never a line.

Have you been in the new Terminal 2 yet? Are you flying Alaska Airlines?

Yes we are flying Alaska as we did last time but have not been in the new terminal yet. I just remember it was such a nightmare getting out of that airport in 2011.

They don't hand check your bags anymore in the new terminal and it is so much nicer! They really speed you right through now.
