December 2005 - I had the opportunity to study in the Galapagos for several months and flew in and out of this airport. Everyone at the airport is easygoing and friendly- the stereotypical islander mentality. There are only 2-3 flights in and out everyday so it is hard to miss your flight. If you must stay overnight, accomodations are inexpensive and you can always sleep on the beach (frowned upon, just stay out of sight)The sea lions leave you alone for the most part if you were there first. From the airport to the furthest point through town is a 20 min walk max, so there are plenty of options if you don't want to sleep in the totally empty airport overnight...
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.
