In Transit thru POS airport

Any recent experience with immigration and customs at the POS airport? I am flying thru POS and just wondering what the process is like between landing and making my way to my connecting flight's gate.

Hi, is your connecting flight with the same airline?
If it is with the same airline then after disembarking you go to the transfer desk where they will check your boarding pass, etc after which you stand in line to take an elevator up to the departure hall. Once you are in the departure hall you will have to go through security again.
Hope this helps.

Perhaps too late for your trip. I've been through three times in the past two weeks. My main challenge is staying "transit" and not ending up at immigration and customs with no way back. (Time consuming.) My strategy is to stay in the plane until someone escorts me onto the right path. I know this makes me sound like a Kettle (though I've been to 155 countries), but it beats a missed connection to a three-times-a-week flight.
