Nice Airport

by web-administrator (March, 2016)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review by Profe Mark) The airport is modern, clean, everyone is friendly, and security line took me 30 seconds. Waiting to check in for Intl flight took 30 minutes. Taxis at lower level (baggage claim) are expensive compared to going upstairs to the departure level where people are dropped off. I suggest finding a taxi there. Compared to MIA this airport is a breeze to get around. The currency exchange booth was changing pesos to dollars at a high rate compared to other airports. Change your currency here.

Bring your own food!

by zilzal (June, 2012)

Reason for Stay: Weather/airline delay
Where: Airside
Pros: Not so crowded, laid back atmosphere, free wifi
Cons: Far from city, ancient infrastructure, not much choice of food

Vultures circling around the landfills surrounding the airport might close the airspace for several hours in the morning or evening. If you are waiting for an international flight and are caught in this situation after you pass through security and immigration, you will find absolutely nowhere to eat! I can't imagine sleeping in this airport overnight...As far as I know, there are no overnight flights, so the airport must close after the last flight lands... International arrivals is chaos. Lines are long to go through customs and immigration. Having said that, for domestic flights, it's not a bad experience...

Reason for Stay: Checking in and had to wait
Where: Landside and Airside

This is a farely not modern airport. It still has old customs, check in and secuity machines. THe waiting area is also uncomfortable.
