Spending the night at the airport

The airport's terminals remain open 24 hours a day, so you will be able to spend the night inside the enclosure if you have a connecting flight early in the morning. However, the facilities are a little basic. Make sure to have a sleeping mask and earplugs or headphones for a better rest.

Where to rest: The airport's benches are uncomfortable, so your best bet will be to lay on the floor. To that end, it is best to have blankets or a sleeping bag. Inside the main building, there is also a VIP lounge with more amenities, but this closes at night. On the other hand, there are a few hotels in the surroundings.

Baggage: There are no lockers nor left luggage services.

Eating and drinking: Commercial stores close at night.

Wi-Fi: Free access.
