Health and Safety
As an extremely poor, underdeveloped country, Honduras has its share of health and safety risks, and it doesn’t have the best doctors and police to help its citizens or foreign visitors cope with them. Nonetheless, with a few basic precautions, travelers can greatly reduce their risk of falling ill or victim to crime.
Travelers might consider purchasing travel insurance before going to Honduras. Several types of insurance are available from many companies in the United States and Europe, covering different amounts of medical expenses and stolen luggage replacement.
