    Avoid exchanging currency here like the plague. One of the booths wanted to apply a 50% service fee when I tried to buy Chilean pesos!

    lounges are under construction.. and the temporary ones.. they are baaaaadd. you take service lifts to a canteen looking area and they have the most basic of chairs and foods and wines

    New renovations make this place feel like a shopping mall instead of an airport - in a good way! Little Mama does quick yet tasty pizza.

    I want to scream ever time I am forced to walk through the highest priced "duty free" stores to get to my gate. Worse than any Casino in Las Vegas!

    New International arrival, terminal 2, has an absurd corridor on exit door, to force people thru taxi booths. Terrible. If someone stops, it is a jam. Unbelievable.

    Give yourself plenty of time to walk to the gate. I was not impressed when landing I had to walk like half a mile around the airport to get out to immigration.

    With renovations all over, it's not always clear where to go, and to ask for directions can take a while since not everyone speak english, and the ones who do are not always kind. Be patient.

    Duty free is way overpriced and expensive. Stay away.

    If you are last minute shopping for Havaianas before your leave Rio - buy them outside the gates. Inside they are 50% more expensive and few variants.

    Of all big city airports that I've been, this one is, by far, the worst. They are trying to improve, and a lot of construction is going on. I hope that in the next couple of years they fix this

    Some boys that clean the shoes dont ask before they full your shoes with some shit. So i think they should be forbidden to bother the clients there. Some security please!

    Dear gringo, I'm sorry for this shitty AirPort. It's a shame that this could Be your first Experience in Brazil. We are better than this. I promise.

    The renovations are taking too long, can't believe an airport this big doesn't have places to charge cell phones. Limited food options. WiFi is free only for 60 minutes.

    One of the best airports I have been in Brazil. It's like a shopping centre. Beautiful, lots of shops, food, and wifi is free and fast

    No WiFi within this airport, and don't even try to exchange your money here, they'll rip you off. Bad and old airport

    Nothing inside the terminal to eat except a few extremely overpriced places. But they have free internet through the Mastercard wifi. Just have to login every 30 mins

    All banks/ATMs are grouped in one area of the terminal. Prepaid SIM cards not available for foreigners.

    Do not arrive too early for your flight ... You may be stuck ground-side, and the air-side options for entertaining yourself are even worse.
