Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
Arica airport is small and has limited facilities, so you will not find many things to do while you wait for your flight.
Where to rest: The terminal does not provide many comfortable spots where to rest, so it is best to have a sleeping bag or blankets in case you have to lay on the floor. The closest accommodations, on the other hand, are located in the city centre.
Baggage: There are no luggage storage offices inside the enclosure.
Eating and drinking: Commercial stores are closed at night. Have a drink and some snacks ready in advance.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, baby changing facilities.
There are no hotels inside the enclosure, but you can find several accommodations in the city, among them:
Phuqata SurfCamp (5.9 km/3.7 miles)
Alojamientos Vilca Salinas (10.9 km/6.8 miles)
Playa Chinchorro (12 km/7.5 miles)
El Jardín de Arenita (12 km/7.5 miles)
