Tegucigalpa is the capital of and largest city in Honduras.
There are a number of bus international bus lines running to Tegus from other Central American capitals. These offer first class, very comfortable service at a reasonable price. A trip from Managua, San Salvador, or Guatemala City would cost between 20-40 USD. Ticabus, is the most affordable and frequented by backpackers.
Airlines offering international service to Tegus include:
Amercan Airlines (Miami)
Copa (San Jose, CR and Panama)
Avianca (formerly TACA) (Miami, San Salvador, Guatemala, and San Jose, CR)
Tegus has a very nice, modern airport, though there are few budget flights to the city. Possibly less expensive is to fly to San Pedro Sula to the north and closer to the resorts on the Caribbean coast and take a bus from there to Tegucigalpa via Hedman Alas, Transportes Viana or any one of many other less expensive operators. Taxis from the airport to downtown may be negotiated to ~L100 as of June 2009.
The football (soccer) stadium is a great central point for learning your bearings map-wise of the city. Several of the larger roads meet in a round-about that uses the stadium as its hub.
What to see
Parque La Leona, is an old neighbourhood in the center of Tegus, overlooking the central park. It is a bit of a labyrinth to make your way up the old steep windy streets to arrive at parque La Leona, but it is a nice park, with a beautiful view, and a relaxed atmosphere.
Parque el Picacho, is a park overlooking the city which takes its name from the huge statue of Jesus Christ, also called "Cristo el Picacho", which is visible from almost any point in the city. The park is well maintained, clean, and seemingly not very busy.
National Zoo, on the same hill as the Picacho statue, with tropical animals such as monkeys, bright-colored parrots, and others. There is a separate entrance fee to enter the zoo. While not a horrible zoo, and worth seeing if you don't mind dropping a few dollars on the entrance fee.
Museo Arqueologico (Archaeology Museum).
La Tigra Tours, Colonia Palmira Avenida Juan Lindo No. 412.
Parque de la Paz, Just south of the Estadio Nacional. From the top you can see great panoramic views of Tegucigalpa, and the Peace Monument itself is also worth the trip up to see.
St. Michael's Cathedral, Los Dolores Church, and San Francisco Church. These are all old Catholic churches well worth visiting, and La Merced and the Basilica de Suyapa are really good, too.
Parque Nacional La Tigra. La Tigra is a cloud forest park to the north–east of Tegus, and is accessible by bus from Tegus. There are several well-marked paths in the park.
Movies The Mall-Multiplaza has a Cinemark theater on the third floor. Showtimes for popular movies frequently are half English with Spanish subtitles, and half dubbed in Spanish.
