    If you are coming for an international flight be sure to grab something to eat before you get to the departure area... the prices are unbelievable! (U$ 5 for a bottle of water is the least of it!)

    To hire a car as you leave customs area and enter the spot for rental cars go to the CMV desk and order a car. They will go to all the major hotels and can charge it to the hotel. Great cars.

    In the domestic flights section I could only get 10 minutes of free internet. The airport is nice and clean. The personnel is efficient. At the café you can get juices, quiche, coffee

    Snacks are slightly cheaper on the domestic gate side compared to international. However they only open the doors to connect the two portions at certain times of the day. Wifi is only free for 10mins.

    No wifi anywhere in the airport, and the VIP lounges are $50USD per person for four hours. One of the bars has computers with internet access. Also, free shots of Pisco sour throughout airport.

    Try Pikeos, a much better option than 4D. It has a much better service and It's usually not as full. The ambience is nice and the food is excellent! Beware that the portions are big.

    There are no gate announcements for departures/arrivals. There are screens placed throughout the terminal with departure information. You will hear this approximately 2 dozen times while you're here.

    Pro tip: how to skip the emigration line for USD$7. If emigration line is long - grab a blank immigration form, fill out only the bottom part and go to the short "caja" lane, pay $7 'fine' and voila

    If you cannot call a taxi cab company by phone and you are not willing to pay the prices of the Remises within the airport, and you have to take Taxi Green, hire them in their kiosk and pay there.

    Taxis at terminal charge you 30$ for a 5$ ride. Instead take a left when you leave terminal then follow path that turns right until you go through a gate. On Elmer Faucett are lots of taxis waiting!

    Best way to go downtown is getting outside the airport walking, and getting a cab outside. You can bargain your trip to the historic center and get it for 30 soles.

    Don't buy alcohol here if you are traveling to the US and have a layover in Panama, as that airport controls liquids at the gate (read: they want to sell you the alcohol themselves)
