We are flying from Orlando through San Juan to St. Thomas. Questions. Will I have to go through customs in San Juan or St. Thomas? Do we claim our luggage in San Juan? Also, we have a three hour layover. I read some horror stories about customs in San Juan. Also, is there anywhere reasonable to get food in San Juan?

No customs unless you are NOT a U.S. citizen. I found San Juan airport to be easily manageable. With 3 hours you should have no problems.

With 3 hours, you probably won't be wanting to leave the airport. It is some fair distance from downtown San Juan. My experience is there is NO place in any airport for reasonable food. I usually ask local people who work in airports where their favorite place on the premises is to eat. Usually there is a local eatery that is a change from chain joints.

Flight changes in San Juan is just like any US airport.

Thanks for the replies. I don't care about food choices, I just know I will need to eat. Anything goes when we travel. Opt more so for convenience.
