Any recommendations on airlines that fly from Belize to Puerto Rico without having to go back up to the States first?

I have done the BZ / San Juan trip. Miami has an in-transit 'lounge' where you are not technically in the states. It's very small, screaming kids, no food, vending machines at best,if you are American as I am it is deplorable.
It does save a bunch of time and paperwork though.
Go to Miami--spend a few days--then go to Puerto Rico
It's a cool place--Rin Con is my favorite. San Juan sucks unless you like Kingston.

I don't think the US has transit lounges any more anywhere - I believe everybody needs to do the full immigration thing.

I agree Diane, haven't seen a transit lounge since around 9/11. Houston does some type of transit for your luggage but if you land in the US you must go through immigration and be finger printed and photographed (non-US citizens.)

Believe Copa has nonstop flights from Panama City, Panama, to San Juan, Puerto Rico. You can fly from BZE to Panama via San Salvador on TACA. Don't know why you'd need to fly to San Josť, Costa Rica (though it's always great to visit COSTA Rica).

My bad; misread the thread; exhausting day or maybe I need glasses!
Thanks for correcting me, Lan.

Thanks all. Oddly enough, it turns out to be faster, cheaper and easier to go up to the US and then back down to Puerto Rico, so I guess that's what I'll be doing.
