TPP 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 Cadete FAP Guillermo del Castillo Paredes Airport.
What to Expect
The small terminal at Tarapoto Airport (code: TPP) serves domestic routes. Plan ahead for snacks and entertainment as we are unable to confirm any shops or eateries. WiFi is available inside the airport lounge, which economy class passengers can pay to enter. See Airport Lounges in the 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 the Airport Hotels section below for locations or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours. Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021. To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.

Taxis are readily available for hire in the ground transportation area. There are no meters, so negotiate a fare with the driver before starting your journey. If travelling 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!
