Medical and Security Alerts for Honduras

COVID-19 information for Honduras

Dedicated COVID-19 website


There are high levels of opportunistic and violent crime, including bag-snatching, pickpocketing and armed robbery. Short-term 'express' kidnapping and kidnap-for-ransom also present a considerable risk to foreigners.

Despite a notable reduction in the number of murders in 2017 and 2018, homicides resumed an upward trend in 2019, indicating that Honduras still has one of the highest homicide rates in the region. However, most murders occur in neighbourhoods and areas near major cities where foreigners on legitimate business trips are unlikely to visit. Most violence is related to clashes between rival gangs and individuals directly and indirectly affiliated with maras (youth gangs) or the drugs trade.

Travellers to remote border regions, especially along the northern coast, should consider using a local guide because of an inadequate police presence in those areas. Crime levels are lower in Islas de la Bahia department, which is considered generally safer than the rest of the country.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
