  1. Hi Matt,
    I read a couple of your posts and they were quite interesting. I was wondering if you traveled from Honduras to Nicaragua, or did you just visit Copan and return to Guatemala? I’m backpacking from Belize to Nicaragua this coming January and slightly worried about Honduras. I know I haven’t been there, but it is hard to ignore all the safety issues. The main reason I wanted to go to Honduras was for the PADI certification, but I’m not even sure I want to do that anymore, to save money. So basically I’m asking, (if you did go to Nicaragua) what your thoughts were on whether or not flying over Honduras or making the trek through it would be better. I know that I’d rather travel across Honduras rather than skip it entirely, but is it really worth it if I’m constantly worried about what I can do? Sorry if you mentioned it somewhere in your blog. Enjoy your adventures

    • Travis – I spent about three weeks in Honduras altogether in 2014, visiting Copán, Utila, Rio Cangrejal and Lago de Yojoa.

      I don’t really think you have anything to worry about – travel friends I encountered in Honduras didn’t have a disproportionate amount of trouble beyond anywhere else in Latin America. In fact, I don’t know why everyone seems to think the rest of Central America is so much safer. Bad things can happen anywhere, after all.

      If you’re not running drugs, participating in gangland turf disputes, or wandering around in bad neighborhoods at night in San Pedro Sula, La Ceiba or Tegucigalpa, I wouldn’t worry. Bottom line: same street smarts rules apply in Honduras as in anywhere else on the planet. In fact, I recommend that you visit a few places aside from the bay islands during your time in Honduras – it’ll give you a feel for the country and the people, and then you can be the guy telling other travelers “it’s really not that bad.” Enjoy your trip.
