When is the best time to fly to San Pedro Sula?

Even though San Pedro Sula enjoys a tropical savanna climate with an average yearly temperature of around 30C degrees, the main consideration when planning a flight to San Pedro Sula is avoiding travel during the rainy season, which can be a major inconvenience and can make travel less appealing. The rainy season runs from May to November in the interior of the country, and September to January along the northern coast, however, if you are travelling on a budget this will be the best time to find cheap flights to San Pedro Sula.  If the rain doesn’t put you off visiting San Pedro Sula during these months, travellers can enjoy the energy and excitement of The Feri Juniana Festival which hosts a programme of live musical performances, food, drink and parades at the end of June.

The best, driest weather is often found during February and March, which is when crowds, airfare and room prices are at their highest. December and January are also busy months especially around the Christmas and New Year Period.

Taking a flight to San Pedro Sula at the very beginning of or tail end of rainy season can see lower prices, fewer visitors, and not as much rain.

City overview

San Pedro Sula is the second largest city in Honduras, which makes it a natural gateway to other parts of the country, as well as other destinations in Central America. While many people use the city as a hub to travel elsewhere in western Honduras, there are several attractions in and around San Pedro Sula worth checking out. Anyone planning on doing any souvenir shopping while in Honduras will have the best chance of scoring something great at the bustling Mercado Guamilito. This large, enclosed market is a great place to find leather goods, silver jewellery, and Honduran handicrafts. The food stalls in the market are a good place for a quick, filling, cheap meal.

Outdoor enthusiasts will want to plan a day trip from San Pedro Sula to Cusco National Park, about a two to three hour trip outside of the city.

The park is also a good spot for birdwatchers, with almost 300 different species in residence. Another worthwhile day trip from San Pedro Sula is to Pulhapanzak Falls, the highest waterfall in Honduras.

In the city, a few other sites to note include the cathedral, and the Museo de Antropología e Historia de San Pedro Sula. This comprehensive museum of the history and culture of the region is full of interesting exhibits and artefacts to explore. There is also a gift shop and cafeteria on site.
