"There is a police and military..." Honduras Local Custom Tip by DanEnslow

Honduras Local Customs: 26 reviews and 24 photos


There is a police and military presence on the streets of honduran cities. This is a result of new policies of the new president Maduro. He got them out of the offices and onto the streets. In my opinion, it is well done, and added to the safety of both nationals and tourists. The men were polite and professional. I didn't see any macho swaggering.
I felt the least safe in Tela after 8:00 when they turned off most of the street lights; maybe they will figure that out soon. I felt much more safe in Trujillo.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
