Spending the night at the airport

San Salvador airport is open 24 hours a day and is a safe place where to spend the night if you have a flight early in the morning and you do not want to go to a hotel.

Where to rest: The security staff will only allow you to remain in the main hall of the terminal. There are not many benches here, so it is recommended to have a sleeping bag in case you have to lay on the floor.
