Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Tarapoto Airport.

WiFi is available inside the airport lounge, which economy class passengers can pay to enter. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for location and access information.

Where to Sleep

This airport closes nightly, after the day’s last flight until 7:00AM, so overnight stays are not possible. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer free shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.

Taxis are readily available for hire in the ground transportation area of the airport. There are no meters, so negotiate a fare with the driver before starting your journey. If traveling light and on a super-tight budget, mototaxis are another option. Although cheaper and more widely available than regular taxis, mototaxis are not for the faint of heart, so bring a little extra courage with you for your trip!
