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
Santa Cruz airport is open 24 hours a day, so you will be able to spend the night inside the enclosure if you have a flight early in the morning or if your flight is delayed.
Where to rest: Benches do not have armrests, but they are made of metal and are not very comfortable. The second floor of the terminals, where the boarding areas are, is usually quieter. Another option (by paying or through a credit card that provides the service) is to enter one of the VIP lounges, where you can access more amenities and privacy. Some of them are even open 24 hours a day. The closest hotels are found inside the city, but in many cases it is possible to arrange a transfer in advance.
Baggage: There is a luggage storage office in the Domestic Arrivals area.
Eating and drinking: Eateries close at night.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: Currency exchange bureaus, ATMs.
In the city centre you can find several hotels, some of which offer courtesy transfers for their guests.
