So the family is doing a trip to Costa Rica but I am flying solo to meet them. I am wondering about my options. The cheaper flight, by $140, has a stopover in Mexico for 5 and 7 hours there and back. The more expensive but direct route is only 4 hours each way. I am trying to decide if hitting Mexico for that short of a time is worthwhile. Anyone here with experience with the airport and local area? Is the extra time worth the lower cost or would I just be bored sitting around in another airport?
EDIT: Actually thinking this might be better in the Central American subforum. Any mods able to move it there for me?
