To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on Acapulco Airport.
What to Expect

- The available restaurants such as Subway etc. and the VIP Lounge close at 10:30pm and reopen at 6:00am so plan ahead and by food before they close or pack your own food.

Where to Sleep
