Where to stay in Tegucigalpa

Given the city's somewhat sketchy reputation, accommodations in Tegucigalpa tend to cluster only around the safer areas. The two most popular places to stay are Colonia San Carlos and Colonia Palmira, both of which exude a middle-class vibe. If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, look to stay in the Colonial Center. There, you'll enjoy access to the best historical attractions in Tegucigalpa--keep in mind, though, that this district can be somewhat unsafe at night.
