Questions about flying to and from the Dominican Republic
Had a quick question about when you spent the night at Santiago airport in dominican republic about a year ago, as I am planning to do the same thing this evening and came across your blog, Santiago Airport Hotel.
After you got to the airport, were you able to check in for the flight and go through security and wait at terminal, or did you have to site outside the counters until check in time. Wifi by any chance at the airport?
STI is a funny airport, set up for the tropics. Most all of the waiting areas — besides being at the gates themselves — are outside. There is a dining area on the second floor though that you can wait in as well though. It has free WIFI. The check in booths are also on the exterior of the airport proper. There are a lot of people around, it is just like a normal airport, only half of it is in the open air.
