The Puerto Jimenez Airport is small, to say the least. It consists of an open air waiting area with ticketing offices for the two commercial airlines that fly in and out, Sansa and Nature Air. There are also clean restrooms and a small snack stand that also sells souvenirs. There is only one gravel runway that serves for both departing and arriving flights. Charter flights also run out of this airport. There is a grocery store within walking distance and a charter office as well. Locals also use the runway as a path to get through town. You can walk into town from the airport but there are also taxis waiting for flights to arrive if you don’t feel like walking. As with the rest of the small, domestic airports in the country, there’s not much security but you still feel safe.
