USEFUL INFORMATION

Health and Vaccinations 

There are no mandatory immunisations for travellers to Honduras though you should be up-to-date with Typhoid, Tetanus, Polio and Hepatitis A. Malaria is present in some parts of Honduras so we recommend you seek advice from your local GP or travel centre as to the correct immunisations and preventative treatments.  

Currency 

In Honduras the official unit of currency is the Lempira.  

To check out the latest exchange rate for the places that you are visiting you can go to www.oanda.com

Cultural Sensitivity 

On our tours you will frequently interact with local people, each with their own distinct customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. Your tour-leaders and guides will always be able to advise you accordingly.  

In the churches and cathedrals women should cover their heads with a scarf or hat and also cover their shoulders, while men should take their hats off.   

Language & Religion 

In Honduras the major language is Spanish but there are also several Mayan indigenous languages in use. English is spoken in some of the more heavily visited tourist sites but any Spanish you can learn beforehand will be very useful.   

Catholicism is the major religion in the country but Evangelism is on the increase. Many Hondurans combine ancient Mayan beliefs almost seamlessly with Christianity and the result can be a very interesting mix!  

Time 

Honduras is 6hrs behind GMT.  

A useful website to check the time zone differences is www.worldtimezone.com.  

Food and drink 

As with much of Central America, Honduran food heavily features tortillas made from maize, however rice and potatoes are also important staples and are available in most places. Frijoles (or black beans) are also predominant and will be found accompanying many dishes. In the more popular areas, a wide variety of international cuisine can be found but there will still be many opportunities to sample traditional local food.  

Excellent coffee is available everywhere and local beers such as Gallo & Cabro are very drinkable. Imported wine is available in some of the more international establishments but be prepared for this to come at an international price.
