Yeah, this time of year, it's always good to keep up to date on flight status and have a Plan B..... or even Plan C or D.

And if your flight is delayed coming into Costa Rica, do be patient if you have hired transportation. They are doing the best that they can considering the demand. Relax and have a nice cup of Costa Rican coffee! Outside SJO, at the end of the terminal, there is a nice little restaurant - Malinche. You can get a bite to eat, some coffee or a fruit "refresco natural" and sit out side and watch the world go by. Bring the phone number of your transportation and buy a SIM card at the ICE kiosk before leaving the terminal and you will be all set.

Will the Sim card work in all type of cell phone? And how much is it?

The SIM card will work in (almost) any phone that is unlocked and takes a SIM card. For iphones, it can be trimmed to fit. If you arrive with an unlocked phone, just hand it over and the person at the ICE desk will take care of everything for you. The SIM card has varying prices, depending on the amount of minutes you think you will need and is very reasonable. Something like 80 minutes for $10 or so.

I was at Malinche day before yesterday waiting for friends on a dalayed flight - decent food, reasonable prices. A kolbi cim cask is 1000c - about 2 bucks. Not sure how many minutes I got but I have made at least a dozen phone calls and more text messages than that and I am still good. They will send you a message if you are running low.
