Do homework before traveling
On June 24, my fiance and I boarded a Lacsa Airlines flight to Costa Rica. Edgar, a permanent U.S. resident and a citizen of Nicaragua, traveled with his Nicaraguan passport and I with my U.S. passport. Upon our arrival in Costa Rica, Edgar was informed that he could not enter the country without a visa, a policy that applies only to Nicaraguans and to no other Central Americans. Within five minutes, he was whisked away by airport security, leaving me alone in a foreign country.
