Visitors flying to Honduras have their choice of airports. The three most commonly used are: Toncontín International (TGU), outside Tegucigalpa (reputedly one of the most dangerous airports in the world, for its difficult runway); Ramón Villeda Morales International (SAP), southeast of San Pedro Sula; and Juan Manuel Gálvez International (RTB), on Roatán. All three are served by direct flights from other Central American capitals, as well as North American (namely Miami, Houston and Atlanta) and South American destinations. Airlines such as United ( and TACA ( ply these routes. In addition, SOSA ( operates flights between La Ceiba and Grand Cayman, from where you can connect to the UK and elsewhere in Europe.

You can enter Honduras by land from Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua. International services such as Tica Bus ( offer long-haul trips from other Central American cities, but you can also travel via slower, cheaper local transport. If you do come by local bus, you’ll have to disembark, cross the border on foot and change buses on the other side. The only sea routes to Honduras are from Belize.
