SJD Airport Overview
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Los Cabos International Airport.
What to expect
Los Cabos Airport (code: SJD) consists of three terminals with four concourses. The airport’s current configuration has Terminal 1 serving all domestic operations and some international. Terminal 2 serves International flights only. Terminal 3 is reportedly under renovation with plans to join it to a fourth terminal. The airport features a decent selection of eateries and shops on both sides of security. All of these services are closed down overnight, so plan accordingly. WiFi is available, and there are reportedly plenty of outlets for charging mobile devices. Additional comfort can be found through fee-based access to one of the airport’s first-class lounges. See Airport Lounges in the guide below.
Where to Sleep
We do not yet have any sleep-related airport reviews. For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels located near the airport. Please see Airport Hotels in the guide below or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.
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.
