Yes there is, there is an outside area after you go through passport control.

Trouble is they will take your lighter off you if they find it. Someone usually manages to sneak one through though so it gets passed around. This is a CV law If you ask why they just say Regulations. Think staff do not know why either.

Haha didn't know that. Of course I suppose you can't take lighters on the plane. The trials of being a smoker ;-)

There is a small kiosk adjoining the open air smoking area, the lady in the kiosk will pass round a few lighters. Everyone on our flight had their lighters taken and there are non on sale inside the airport.

Taxis seemd plentiful out side the airport, no idea on the price to the Riu, but its a 15/20 minute drive.
