Travel Infomation Description

Road Conditions and Safety: Because of crime, poor road conditions, and heavy commercial truck traffic, driving in Honduras can be dangerous. The U.S. Embassy discourages car and bus travel after dark.  

  • Honduran roads are poorly lit and poorly marked.
  • Traffic signs are often inadequate or non-existent.  
  • Drivers don?t always use headlights at night.
  • Animals and people wander onto the roads.
  • Rockslides are common, especially in the rainy season (May through December) and can cause closure of major highways.  

Dangerous stretches of road include:

  • The road between Tegucigalpa to Choluteca: Be aware of mountain curves.
  • The road from El Progreso to La Ceiba: Animals frequently enter the road, and bridges are in poor condition due to flooding.
  • CA-5 and the highway between San Pedro Sula and Tela, particularly near the palm tree plantations near El Progreso: Carjackings and robberies target SUVs and usually occur at night.
  • The road from Juticalpa to Telica, and from the turn off to Gualaco on Route 39 to San Esteban and Bonito Oriental: Rival criminal elements engage in violent acts against one another. Avoid this road and stay on the main Tegucigalpa-Juticalpa-Catacamas road while traveling in Olancho.

While Honduras and the United States have signed and ratified a Stolen Vehicle Treaty, existing Honduran laws protect good faith buyers (even of stolen vehicles), so the recovery and return of these vehicles to their original owners is not guaranteed. Vehicle insurance may mitigate loss; please check with the National Insurance Crime Bureau or with private insurance carriers about coverage details.

Traffic Laws: In an accident, contact the Honduran Transit Authority (?Transito?) by dialing 911.  

  • Honduran law requires all vehicles involved in an accident to remain in place until Transit Authority agents arrive. 
  • Notify your car insurance company as soon as possible, preferably right after the accident. 
  • Carry personal identification documents, including your driver?s license, copies of passports, and vehicle registration cards while driving.

Public Transportation: Avoid public transportation in Honduras.  

  • If you plan to travel by bus, always travel during daylight hours and on first-class conveyances, not economy buses. 
  • Choose taxis carefully, and note the driver?s name and license number. Instruct the driver not to pick up other passengers, agree on the fare before you enter the vehicle, and have small bills available for payment, as taxi drivers often do not make change. Use Radio-Taxi services (companies that operate by phone) rather than hailing a taxi on the street.
  • When possible, travel in groups.

See our Road Safety page for more information.

Aviation Safety Oversight: As there is no direct commercial air service to the United States by carriers registered in Honduras, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has not assessed the government of Honduras?s Civil Aviation Authority for compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards. Further information may be found on the FAA?s safety assessment page.
