Bay Islands off Honduras mainland are great as well. English speaking and you take advantage of Honduras exchange rate. Maria Linda does bring up a good point about Honduras being quite dangerous.

I am an American living in Comayagua. All you need to do is go to LaPrensa.com one of the countries dailey news papers to determine for yourself how dangerous Honduras can be. Honduras is a third world country and the poorest in all of Latin American. She is a very beautiful country, nice people,good food, decades of history, cheap living. But dont come here with your arrogant,I am superior Americana attitude. You will find out there is not shortage of pride or self worth.

I go to La Ceiba every year and never have a problem. I walk around the zone viva at night and have never seen the "violence and danger" that some others speak of.
Just go and enjoy the great restaurants and friendly people!!

I've lived in La Ceiba Honduras for over 6 years straight without any issues with Hondurans.
I have blonde hair/blue eyes and drive, walk and go where I please.

But... if you go to a bad area in any city you could get in some trouble. This is in ANY country in the world !!

Most of the time when people are hurt, killed or whatever is because they are into drugs or cheating someone out of money, out of face or on a spouse.

Sometimes the Hondurans take it into their own hands when the justice system is slow and does not work well.

* You can start understanding this if you live here for 1 year or more.....
