Domestic to International Transfer- my luggage?

Hi! Me & my family are leaving in about a month to go to Cancun for my wedding. We are flying from SFO to Denver then have an hour & half layover in Denver before departing for Cancun (all flights are Airtran or Airtran operated by SW). I have read that in some cases passengers need to re-check their luggage in order for it to make it to their international destination- or is just returning not leaving? Anyone know anything about this?

I'm also assuming we will need to go through some sort of customs security check at Denver? It would be great to know if we do- I don't want to stock up on water & snacks for the flights in SFO only to have to throw them away at Denver if we need to go through security again. Muchos Gracias!!! =)

If all booked on one locator, your luggage will be checked thru from SFO to Cancun. You will go thru Customs and US Immigration on your return trip FROM Mexico. You will need your passport for check-inat SFO, and you might have to show it before boarding in DEN. It has been handled in different ways, and check-in for your second flight will sometimes depend on airline.
