I.C.E. (phone) store at SJO - what time does it close?

As per all the advice on Tripadvisor, I plan to purchase a prepaid SIM card upon arrival in Costa Rica. However, my flight is not scheduled to land until 9pm (this coming Saturday). Does anyone know how late the I.C.E. cell phone store is open at the San Jose Airport?

We arrived at SJO last Wednesday on Delta. For the first time the new secure passage where the incoming passengers don't come in contact with those departing was used. I am not sure if the new system is fully operational yet for all arrivals. But the reason I am telling you this is because if you indeed arrive that way you don't pass gate 6 anymore. I did however see an ICE counter in the baggage claim area. But I didn.t check it out. Good luck. raquel

Update to Times

I left SJO yesterday and asked the woman working at the desk about the hours. She said that for the busy holiday season, the ICE desks would be open till midnight. Not sure how long this will last as she made it sound like it was temporary - but probably till about New Years.

The secure corridors for incoming passengers are in operation - so you won't see Gate 6 - but she assured me there was an ICE desk in the baggae claim area.

How much are these prepaid sim cards for a 7 day vacation. Excellent idea, too made other countries wouldn't off them @ the airport.

TY in advance

Happy Travels!
