    I you're parking in Long Term Parking, try to park on the northernmost end of the 2nd level. It will put you right at the walkway to the terminal. Avoid the creepy shuttle on the 5th level.

    For the least amount of walking from long term parking, go to level 2 an hang a right as far as you can go towards the walkway.

    Aeropuerto grandisimo, si vas a transbordar toma tu siguiente vuelo con vario tiempo de diferencia

    Not a fan of the "Immediate Unloading ONLY" for picking up for guests... You either have to keep circling or just sit in the SHORT TERM PARKING till your party is ready for pick-up.
