    When you're leaving, take half an hour of your time before boarding to take a massage by the blind (!) (and not the 'normal') masseurs and masseuses! It was the best massage I ever had!

    For food the best option is the restaurant at Waterfront Hotel right in front of the airport. They offer buffet dinner for 700php - worth the money and nice ambiance. A la carte menu also available.

    If you want to take home some of Cebu's lechon, you can have your favorite lechon resto deliver it at the airport, or, for convenience, just buy it the lechon store just outside the departure entrance

    Go for Ayers when buying Cebu Lechon.It tastes better and located just at the entrance of the Departure Area. But I strongly suggest the next time to buy the Lechon Belly in Parkmall.The best in Cebu.

    Bringing home some lechon? They have Zubuchon and Ayer's at the airport but you might want to get some from Rico's. It's not in the airport but the nearest branch is just a block from the airport.

    To save on meals, there is a PAL canteen on the left side of the airport, or if u want u can eat on the other canteen near PAL cargo, food is awesome. If u hav excess bagage, go to PAL cargo, cheap

    Buy your pasalubong in malls/at the market before going to the airport. Buying pasalubong in the airport will cost you twice (even more) as much.

    Very pleasant airport with good cafes and stores selling Cebu specialities, even lechon! So have no fear if you forgot to buy roscillos, otap etc. you can get them here!

    Change has come. Fast internet connection is already working ( globe and smart ) and more shops already in the pre-departure area like Bench, Jollibee, Island Souvenirs and such. 😊

    As of Feb 2016, the queues here (from the initial inspection/x-ray line, to the check-in lanes, to the boarding gates) have become extra long and take longer than usual. Come early.

    If ur waiting for a connecting flight best place to wait it out is just across the road at the Waterfront Hotel where u can have free wifi in the lobby while u have coffee or a shake.

    Make sure you carry enough change to pay airport tax of 750 pesos and the lines are long. They don't accept cards or foreign currency other than USD. Coffee bean has wonderful cakes do try them!!

    Tip from Javalava Manila Tours. Didn't have enough lechon Cebu? There's Ayer's Lechon located across the entrance of the departure hall. There's also Zubuchon inside the boarding lounge. Enjoy!

    There is a storage on the 1 floor between domestic and international terminal - very helpful when you have long connection. Free wifi is available. Duty free zone is tiny - two stores and one cafe.

    The place is modern and nice. The air-conditioning system is great. The Toilets are clean. Overall, the place is a lot better than Naia International Airport

    Long taxi queue? Take the yellow multicab & drop at Savemore shopping center or @ the foot of the new or old bridge then get a taxi from there. Recommended only for light travellers & arrived daytime.

    This place have a good selection of food shops. From snacks to meals, coffee, and juices. The souvenir shops are a little bit expensive & few choices... But for last minute shopping it's okay.

    Backpackers: If you spend the night for an early flight, they won't let you pass the security. Go around for a bit til you get close to the quiet staff area, do some floor-camping and good night!

    There's a luggage counter on the left side of the departure area. This is very helpful to those who have in between flights and wish to stroll around the city before checking in for their next flight.

    If the arrival pick up area is jam packed (like most of the time), tell your pick up to fetch you at the departure area. Just walk across the street of the arrival area and go up the ramp.

    Since they renovated the airport, all the local eateries serving Filipino fares have disappeared leaving commercial establishments like dunkin donuts and Zubuchon. Eat breakfast at your hotel instead

    When you arrive here and need a cab to a hotel in the city, just take the yellow (!) metercabs! Those are the cheapest. Don't listen to the people with the ride offers.

    Immigration quite strict for first timers. Be prepared for a lot of questioning. If you're employed, bring your company ID with you. Those who've traveled enough, can vouch for a first time companion

    If you find the food inside the airport too pricey, there's this clean carenderia just behind mr. Liempo. Yes, it's in that building behind mr. Liempo you have to go down. Food is okay and affordable

    Flying with PAL? Always ask for a window seat. Always refer these seats as ROW A & F or for their A320, ROW AC or HK for their A330 or A340 & ROW A & K for their B747. Enjoy the view!

    Wifi no qorking for me, I'll try later near the gate (thank god for the SUN prepaid card). The international airport fee is P550 pp. so if you are leaving the country save some cash for it.
