Sleeping in Aeroparque Airport

Travellers report that airport staff are friendly and accommodating to overnight sleepers, with some reviewers noting that staff directed them to a floor just above the domestic boarding area as being the quietest spot for sleeping. Armrest-free seating can be found in gate areas, with International gates reportedly having the more comfortable seats. Floor sleepers, with travel mats and/or sleeping bags, tend to stretch out along the windows of the long gate area hallway. For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport.
