We weren't sure how long the storm would affect air travel and decided that we would have more options if we returned to the US. Plus, we would be able to get internet access and have more research opportunities.
Our flight took off on time from Camaguey and landed 90 minutes later. We had flown JetBlue, which we found out had no reciprocity with any other airlines. We could wait for the next day to see if we could get a flight home or arrange our own travel at our own expense. Since the storm was predicted to get worse the next day, we decided to arrange our own travel.
We found a flight on another airline to SFO but it departed from MIA. Now, how to get to MIA. Fortunately, there was a TriRail train between the 2 airports. It was convenient.
Take the free shuttle from FLL to the train station.
Buy your ticket from the machines or wait in line to purchase from the station agent.
The ride took 45 minutes and cost $3.75/person. The train stops at MIA and the MIA mover carries passengers to the terminal.
