 Spending the night at Cancun airport?

Cancun airport is open 24 hours a day. For this reason, passengers who have a connecting or early departure flight in the morning can plan to spend the night at one of the terminals.

 Where to rest?

In terminals 2 and 3 you will find padded seats but with armrests. In Terminal 2 there are some short benches without armrests. Being located in a touristic place, Cancun airport is usually very busy. This is why it is recommended to have earplugs or headphones at hand for a better rest. Within the previous two terminals, there are also some lounges in case you have a larger budget. Two of them are even open 24 hours a day. In addition, several hotels in the surrounding area operate shuttle services to and from the airport.

 Is there 24-hour left luggage service?

Lockers are available in Terminal 2, although it should be noted that they are small, and therefore not suitable for large pieces of luggage. The cost for 24 hours is approximately USD5.00.

 24-hour eating and drinking options

Most of the shops (except for some duty-free shops) and food places close at night.

 Is there free Wi-fi internet access?
