Sleeping in Airports

Cuiaba Airport Guide

We looked around for a good half hour and the only ‘safe’ thing we decided on was sleeping in clear view, in the corner of the observation area, just near the police office. – jane_and_rosey

Where to Sleep

cuiaba airport guidePast travelers found the corner of the observation deck nearest to the airport police station to be the safest place in the airport to sleep. All seating has armrests, so have a travel mat or sleeping bag handy and be prepared to sleep on the floor!   The airport is noisy and busy at all hours of the night, so have a sleep mask and earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones handy to ensure a good night’s rest!  For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
