Getting to Bonaire:
Bonaire to Costa Rica

July 22nd I will travel from Bonaire to San Jose, Costa Rica
BT members warned me for a to short connection time in Miami. I found this alternative.
I never flew DAE or Lacsa. Never been to Bogota.
Any comments are highly appreciated.

I would choose Curacao to Costa Rica on AA via MIA.

Thank you Ann.
AA was my First choice, and I actually bought my tickets there.
AA sold me a ticket with a connection time of 90 minutes in Miami.
When I booked the ticket, they asked a minimum connection of 80 minutes
Luckily, some of the BT members warned me that there is a very big chance that 90 minutes are not enough to clear customs, get my luggage, check my luggage and catch the plane
I contacted AA. They said now 95 minutes is a minimum.
So they changed my flights, resulting in a 07:35 departure in Curacao.
That would mean that we will have to overnight with my family in Curacao, which incurs extra cost. And we will have a lay-over of 8 hours in Miami.
Of course I already booked my tickets (10:35) with Insel air to catch the flight of AA from CUR to MIA which was supposed to leave at 15:25.
These tickets are obsolete now too; changing the tickets costs almost as much as buying new ones.
So I looked into alternatives and came up with the above one.
