Time allow to get through Immigration and Custom for flight

I am flying from San Francisco to Puerto Maldonado via LAN

SFO – LIM 10:45pm (day before) – 07:05am (next day)

LIM - CUZ 9:00am – 10:20am

CUZ – PEM 11:25am – 12:20pm

Is the schedule above too tight for Lima Immigration and Custom and check in again for the next flight? How much time do I need to allow in order to catch the next flight?

Thank you!

It's very tight. Would not take much of a delay to miss either connection. We landed lim 4:30am and were at our next gate to cuz in about 60min. But we had no lines anywhere. others have said it took much longer. And the connection in Cuz is tight in any airport. no tome if there is a delay. Are your plans in PEN flexible or will it cause a big problem if you get there late? Have you checked how often there are flights to PEM if you miss yours to see how late you'd be?
