There are no travel restrictions in place in this travel advice for Honduras.
• The rainy season normally runs from June to November, coinciding with the hurricane season in the Caribbean.
• Local authorities declared a state of emergency on 31 July after an outbreak of dengue fever that has affected more than half of Honduras’ municipalities. Local authorities have intensified their actions to tackle the outbreak.
• There is no British Embassy in Honduras. If you need emergency consular assistance, you should contact the British Honorary Consuls in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula or Roatan, or the British Embassy in Guatemala City.
• Crime rates are high. The military supports the police in some parts of the country.
• Demonstrations can occur throughout Honduras, sometimes violent and often with little or no notice.
• Avoid travelling on public buses (repainted US school buses). Private inter-city coach services are safer but not immune from attack.
• There is a low threat from terrorism.
• Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.
