I first made it there in 2005 and thought I was in a homeless shelter. I couldn’t believe it. I went there again in 2007 and the place had undergone a sweet remodeling. – robbiesqp
TGU 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 Tegucigalpa’s Toncontín International Airport.

Where to Sleep
This airport closes nightly, after the day’s last flight until 6:00AM, so overnight stays are not possible. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service for a fee. 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.
