Airfare to San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Honduras’ industrial city, San Pedro Sula is also the gateway to the plentiful Caribbean coastline, including the much-lauded islands of Utila and Roatan, where diving and snorkeling are must-do attractions. Cigars are made here, and an inexpensive gift for smokers back home.
Airfare to San Pedro Sula will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates.
Also consider flights into Tegucigalpa, Honduras. To get between the cities, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines. Although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.
Another possible money-saving tip is to look for flights that go through San Jose, Costa Rica, or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.
Finally, consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. TACA de Honduras is the national airline. However, American Airlines, Copa Airlines and other airlines also stop in San Pedro Sula.
The most expensive air tickets to San Pedro Sula are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.
Summary of Money Saving Tips:
- Fly mid-week
- Book your holiday during the off-peak season
- Consider flying into Tegucigalpa and traveling overland to San Pedro Sula via train or bus
- Look for flights that go through large cities, with many flights
- Check out carriers besides the national airline – they may undercut the monopolistic competition
