When you wait for 13 hours on a plane to cross the puddle you have to be patient. Especially if you are a smoker like me. I have already noticed on more than one occasion that the bad vice creates a special craving that makes sleep difficult and when you smoke the first cigarette when you reach the destination the craving disappears, the slump comes suddenly and you would fall asleep then supported on any lamppost .
For travel to the Mexican region of Baja California Sur We moved from Barcelona to Madrid by AVE and then got on an Aeromexico plane that left us at the brand new Benito Juarez International Airport in Mexico City. The next day we had a new stopover that would leave us at the San José airport in Los Cabos and for this reason we booked a hotel in advance near the airport.
Mexico DF airport facilities are modern with natural light based on holes in the structure, large television screens in the waiting areas and multiple areas where you can charge your electronic devices. We miss the use of Wi-Fi for free for passengers as in other airports. All the connections we found were protected or paid.
We were surprised that from Madrid the Aeromexico agents could not check the bags directly to San José, our final destination whose scale we made with the same company. However, on the way back they had no problem doing it.
Once we had our backpacks on our back we headed to the outside area of the airport and, after hitting tobacco addiction, we set out to look for signs of the hotel that we had booked in advance.
Hotels near the airport have their own office in the terminal to make the transfer to the hotel itself. We found ours, Ramada, and in a few minutes we climbed into the mono volume that left us at the doors of the hotel.
We had booked the room through Booking for the price of 60 euros. However, at reception they had proof of the price in pesos and when making the conversion, and some commission, finally the rate ended up around 70 euros. We were tired after the long trip and we didn't want to start an argument that we knew was not going to get anywhere and we headed to the room to leave the backpacks. It was a double room with large beds, a false window built in the wall and a spacious bathroom. Enough for one night waiting for the next flight. Breakfast was included in the price and in the morning we discovered that it was generous and with multiple options to choose from including a grill area to taste.
