Ramón Villeda Morales International Airport is also known as San Pedro Sula International Airport and is the busiest and most popular airport in Honduras. When booking a trip to Honduras, use Skyscanner's cheapest month search tool for the best deals on flights, no matter the season. The on-page information and additional links help travellers plan the most budget-friendly and fun experience in Honduras.
Best Times to Book a Flight to Honduras
Flights are cheapest when booking two to three months out from the preferred travel dates to the Caribbean, and direct flights are available when travelling via major U.S. international airport hubs. The cheapest travel times for flights are either early morning or late evening, but travellers can save even more by booking during the rainy season, from May through November. However, the weather is a big consideration, especially when planning outdoor activities in coastal cities. Be cautious when travelling in September or October, as this is hurricane season, and the country is susceptible to mudslides and heavy periods of rain.
