Now it's the_dutchman's turn to ask for some advise. My wife and I will be in the Honduras from the 10th of January till the 6th of Feb. 2014. We have laid out our itinerary for that time and have booked hotels in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, Tela, LaCeiba and Roatan. Having traveled extensively to 75 countries throughout the world I am still cautious when we go somewhere. Any advice as to the dangers of the Honduras, how about bus travel, local or long distance. Any other advise you may be able to offer will be appreciated.
Gerry, the_dutchman P.S. We have been to the Copan ruins

Are there any tours to visit Chortis village?
How much from la cabia to rotain with car

Hi, I am wondering if I fly in to SPS and see Copan and/or la ceiba and then we make our way to Guatemala and make some stops there.
Is this asking too much or pretty doable without feeling totally on the move all the time?
Is it reasonable to Arrive Amapala November 7 for 3 night stay without a reservation and find something that day? Is there a good swimming beach? Hiking opportunity for views?
I am arriving at Tegucigalpa International airport in the afternoon. I am wondering, what would be the best way to get to Copan from airport. Thanks and I speak very limited spanish
Hey guys and gals, I need some help deciding my next trip or two. First of let me give you all some background so you can get a feel for what I enjoy. My wife and I are both in our late mid 20's, no kids and live in California. We love to do all things outdoors and love trying new things and going on adventures. I feel like I just filled out an online dating profile......Anyways we have traveled a bit over the last few years, making it to a few parts in Mexico, some Caribbean islands, Belize, Fiji, and each of the Hawaiian islands a few times. Through these travels we have found many things that we like and many things that we have not. Starting off with the diving, obviously that is one of the best parts of the trips and I feel it will be hard to beat what we saw in Fiji and the Rainbow reef and shark dive. We love all of the "off the beaten path" non tourist stuff that we found in Belize and Fiji. I did find that Mexico and the Caribbean islands we went to were just too touristy and everything was overpriced because ship loads of people show up to snorkel and zipline. I loved that I was able to explore the country in Fiji and Belize and still feel safe yet have a sense of adventure because of the culture. We're not huge fans of big cities while on trips either. Hawaii has been amazing each time we have been there but we want to try someplace new. Like I said before we love to dive, fish, snorkel and pretty much do anything in the warm ocean water, which is why I'm hesitant to travel to a place like New Zealand where there may not be as much time spent in the water. That being said, we also loved spending time in the jungle of Belize and seeing all of the wildlife and doing the hikes(most of which aloud us to be the only ones on the trail). So a good mix would be awesome. Lodging should be nice but doesn't have to be 5 star. Pretty much we want to do lots of stuff besides just sit on a beach and have a great adventure doing things we will be talking about for years to come! We have kind of looked into Honduras(Utila and Roatan), Costa Rica and Australia but are not stuck on just those destinations. Looks like we be able to travel about 8-10 days in April and then 14ish days in late July or early August. Any info or ideas would be great!
Hi, Im taking a cruise and I will be like 8 hrs in Mahogany Bay. Have you been there? I like cultural spots, like small towns, museums, etc. Is the town close to the port? Do I have to take a taxi, is there public transportation? I like budget stuff. Please give me recommendations. Thank you!
My daughter forgot her power cord to her MacBook computer, is there anywhere on the island near the cruise ship port that she can buy a power cord??? She is on a Carnival Cruise.
I've read many accounts of people who have rented cars in Honduras and then tried to cross the border into Guatemala and ran into fees ($120/ car or $50/person) and also long delays. So, I trying to decide if I should take a taxi or figure out how to hire a car with a driver to take me into Guatemala.
If anyone have some ideas/suggestions or first-hand experience, I'd appreciate if you could share. Thanks!
What is the easiest/cheapest way to get to Utila from Trujillo?

I am moving to La Campa Honduras in June, I have been there a few times, and when I went this area seemed really safe but i just wanted to make sure, I will be going with my wife (25) and two kids a 2 year old and a 1 year old.
I was also wondering about the house rental in this area I will be using a very well known interrupter if you are wondering where la campa is it is around the Gracias, Lempira area about 4ish hours from San Pedro Sula.
Thanks for any help with this
Hello, what is the diving like in the South Shore vs the West End of Roatan?

We arrive i n Honduras after 6:30 PM and do no thin k we will make the 6:50 last bus departure to la cieba where we plan to spend the night. Can someone recommend a taxi service and how much should we pay? Jennifer
I tend to be more of a backpacker traveler and like to stay away from resorts, cruise docks, etc. I know I'm a tourist just the same but I like to get the most unique perspective out of my travels rather than being surrounded by what I am trying to get away from... if that makes any sense. A friend and I will be meeting up on Roatan Island at the end of February - beginning of March. Are there any areas we should avoid? Also, how easy is it to hire a boat to travel to the other islands? I've read that they can be more remote.
Lastly, what is the deal with the water, I haven't found any big warnings about staying away from the drinking water. Mostly just warnings about sand flies. I've had traveler's e-coli before so just trying to find out if there are any drinks/foods I should avoid.
Thanks for any help!
