Honduras as a visitor

We've been checking out the area online - other than mission teams, it's really not a place traveled by foreigners or tourists. There are no straight roads in or out to nearby places, and traveling 200 miles can be a 5 or 6 hour trip. By all accounts, it's not a place a tourist would choose to travel; poor roads, dangerous driving and high levels of crime and corruption versus the sunbathing and diving in the northern shores of the Carribean or visiting the Mayan ruins to the west.... these central areas are not much more than shading on a map to most of us.

As for our team going there, certainly we will take many precautions and we won't be leaving the project area unaccompanied or at night. Honduran cities & towns are not safe places. We pray for the safety of all going, and will be using our God-given common sense for staying safe!
