We will depart SJO at 12:35PM and land in FLL on 8/1/17 at 5:35PM. We are switching airlines to catch a return flight to TPA. How much time do we need in between to get our luggage from baggage claim, checked back in and through security?
Flight from GCM set to arrive in FLL at 3:55 PM. Flight from FLL to DEN is schedule to depart at 5:05 PM. All flights are on Southwest and we will not be checking any bags. Is this 1hr 10 min layover doable?

It's risky, but not impossible. If you miss your connection Southwest will rebook you.

Thanks ZAP, I forgot to mention these are separate tickets, but both Southwest if that makes any difference.
Please Help!!! Booked a Jet Blue flight from Santa Dominican SDQ to FLL on 6/24 arriving at 6:09AM. Considering booking a flight to IAH on Spirit that departs at 7:20AM. Is 1 hour and 11 minutes enough time to make this connection with a carry on? Will I have to go though security again? How far are the terminal's from each other?

Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and go through security. I don't think that's enough time.
Booked a nonstop domestic Southwest flight to FLL on 9/2 arriving at 9:20AM. Considering booking a flight to EYW on Silver that departs at 10:40AM. Is 1 hour and 20 minutes enough time to make this connection with a carry on? I assume that I may have to go though security again to get to Silver.
Yes, you will have to go through security again to get to Silver. That is enough time with no checked bags if the Southwest flight is on-time.
8/6 2017 arriving 7 p.m with Norwegian (CPH) Terminal 4 and with departure Jetblue 8.56 terminal 3. It seems that a new connection has been made betw. Term4 and T3? will this limit the security check to one??. Is the transfertime enough, only handbaggage??
It should be barely possible. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, walk to T3 and go through security.
Hi, I'm planning to book my flights right now, I'm wondering if 1hr 2min layover in FLL is enough time to clear immigration and get to my gate? My first flight from SJO to FLL arrives at 6:02am, 1 hr 2min layover, second flight departure is 7:04am. Please help me on this!
With the early morning arrival it's possible but still a bit risky. I'm guessing that both flights are on Spirit?
We are arriving with Southwest from Havana at 3:45pm, next flight to BWI is at 6:05pm also with Southwest. Is there sufficient time to clear immigration and customs and recheck bags?
Yes, that should be enough time. The hard part will be getting from Terminal 4 where you arrive to the far end of Terminal 1 where you depart, but I'm sure Southwest has something set up for these connections.
