I actually really like this airport for international/international journeys or flying into Mexico, but sleeping there is another story. I arrived there about 7:30 am from a red eye flight. I got a little bit of sleep on the flight, but not much so I was pretty tired when I got there. I wasn't flying out until 9 pm so I basically had a whole day there. Every seat has an armwrest. I didn't want to have my eletronics stolen so I sleep on the floor using my laptop bag as a pillow. The other downside is it freezing cold. It made it even harder to sleep. Fortunetly I was never bothered by security or police once. The Wifi can only be used if you are an existing customer of the local DSL company. Another piss off is there is No ATM pass security on the international side. What the hell?
