At various times through loch or circumstance I’ve had to sleep at airports on my travels. As I consider my routing this winter for my upcoming fourth winter in sunny Mexico I know for sure that Victoria International is not on the list.
Why? This is most decidedly NOT a 24 hour airport. There are no flights either landing or taking of between midnight and six and the Starbucks doesn’t open until 5 a.m.
Previously, I’ve flown out of Vancouver or Victoria to Guadalajara and I had better departure times and arrival times at the other end. This year, going more or less directly to San Miquel de Allende is a completely different story. This year I’m heading to Leon and then getting a shuttle from Leon to SMA about an hour and 45 minutes away! Just a bit trickier…
However,I DO know one thing for certain. I will not be flying out of Victoria. The flight is too early, there are two stops and the arrival time in Leon is not convenient.
Last year, I spent the night in the Mothers’room because the airport security guard took pity on me when he found out I was doing an all nighter!
Not recommended. Hard, plastic uncomfortable couch. All I can say is I was extremely tired by the time I got there and I fortunately have maintained the very useful traveling ability to sleep almost anywhere. I put on my sleep mask and zone out.
The updated plan this year is to go nt Victoria Clipper to Seattle and fly our of Seattle after perhaps a day in Seattle. Mi gusto the Emerald City!
