Flights to Tampa, Florida (TPA) 

Many destinations have travel requirements in place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, including proof of negative COVID-19 test result. Please review the COVID-19 Travel Requirements before booking.

Sitting along the water of Florida’s Gulf Coast, Tampa offers a unique vibe, mixing the historic streets of Ybor City and a multitude of museums with the bay feel of a waterfront city.  A popular port of departure for Caribbean cruises, Tampa is part of a greater metropolitan area that includes St. Petersburg and Clearwater and accessible via Tampa International Airport (TPA). The heart of downtown Tampa is Riverwalk, a 2.4-mile path that connects some of the city’s biggest attractions, including the Florida Aquarium and Tampa Bay History Center. A great place to bike, run, and walk due to its warm and breezy climate, it is also the site of festivals and special events.

Tampa International Airport (TPA) is six miles from Tampa and serves more than 20 international, domestic, and regional airlines, including Delta Air Lines. It serves 85 non-stop flights to destinations throughout the U.S., Central America, Europe, and the Caribbean, including Cuba. Conde Nast named it among the top three airports in the U.S. in 2016.

The design of Tampa International Airport is unique. It has a central landside terminal for ticketing and baggage claim surrounded by four airside satellites (A, C, E, and F) comprising a total of 59 gates. This is where the majority of the airport’s restaurants and shops are located. Each airside is connected to the terminal by an automated people mover.

Take a guided tour and stop by Ybor City Museum State Park, the former site of Ferlita Bakery, famous for its Cuban bread before it was damaged by fire in 1922. Today, it tells the story of Ybor City’s founders.

Experience the thrill of an African animal safari and feed a giraffe at Busch Gardens theme park. The park is home to more than 12,000 animals and 300 different species. If you prefer a different kind of thrill, there are plenty of rides, including multiple roller coasters like the triple-loop Cheetah Hunt and Cobra’s Curse, a spin coaster.

Ranked among Parent Magazine’s top five kid-friendly aquariums, Florida Aquarium is a 250,000-square-foot facility designed to illustrate the passage of a drop of water from Florida’s freshwater streams as it journeys to the depths of the Gulf of Mexico. Watch wildlife ranging from otters to octopus frolic in the water.

See the city from the water by navigating Tampa Bay in an eBoat. The sheltered, easy-to-operate electric boat can hold up to 10 passengers and are available to rent by the hour. Or, if you’d rather, book a guided tour.
