Spending the night at the airport
A very busy airport throughout the day and the night, it is relatively small for the amount of passengers going through it. Beyond that, there are a lot of stuff to do and visit. It is noisy and pretty cold, so have earplugs and warm clothes if you are going to spend the night inside the enclosure.
Where to rest: There are not many places for resting, but you can find reclinable chairs next to the boarding gates of Terminal 3. Another option (by paying or through a credit card that provides the service) is to use one of the VIP lounges, most of which are open 24 hours a day. However, keep in mind that the maximum stay is usually 4 hours. SEE VIP LOUNGES In Terminal 1, on the other hand, there is a hotel, and another alternative is linked to terminals 1 and 3.
