Tegucigalpa Airport Car Hire

Airport Code: TGU

Get into the capital and largest city of Honduras with a cheap car rental from Tegucigalpa Toncontín International Airport.  Located just 6 km from the center of Tegucigalpa, Toncontín is a very nice and modern airport.  It offers frequent connections to major international airports in the United States, such as Miami, Atlanta, and Houston, as well as several convenient connections throughout the Americas.

Called one of the world's most dangerous airports due to its location in the mountains of Honduras, efforts to reroute the bulk of the country's international flights through the Soto Cano Airport in Comayagua were not successful because it is so far away from the major business center of Tegucigalpa.  In 2008 and 2009 a number of improvements were made to make landing in the airport safer for the large, international aircraft.  The Toncontín Airport is still the most convenient international gateway for business travelers to pick up their car hire in Tegucigalpa. 

The city of Tegucigalpa is sprawled out over the scenic mountains of Honduras.  Said to be set back 50 years by the devastating Hurricane Mitch in 1998, Tegucigalpa maintains a certain rural feel though it is a fully modern major city.  A 400 year history as a mining center has left the city with many an interesting old stone street, historic building, or beautiful colonial neighborhood, though these places are not so celebrated and easy to find unless you explore on your own by car rental.
