What is it like to arrive in PV in the middle of the night?

We arrive at 3 am, and was wondering if we will still have to deal with the timeshare gauntlet. Or is it nice and quiet, and quicker to get though? This will be the fifth time to PV for my husband and I, but first time during the night. Feeling a bit nervous about it, and hope it will all go over smoothly

It should be quiet... we never arrived in the midle of the night, but have taken an AeroMexico night flight with a stop in Mexico City arriving in PV at 730 am. There were a only a few people in customs and a few timeshare sharks when we arrived, much quicker and quieter than arriving during the day or late afternoon.

Most of the timeshare OPC's get off work around 10 p.m.

Should definitely be more quiet.

I've come in at midnight and 1am before...airport is dead. Bare minimum of staffing, and nobody in the tank. Just a handful of taxi drivers around.

You gotta love those Canadian charters! Anything to make it difficult.

We arrived late evening (10pm or so) once - it was quiet, and quick and easy through Immigration, and then we were all waved through Customs, with no real check or the red/green light thing.

We arrived at 8pm and no other planes in site so the place was dead. I pressed the button and got a red light but the young man told me to just "GO". There were more taxi drivers than time share guys.
