One important issue to keep in mind when visiting Honduras is security. Street crime is a principal concern: including theft, pickpocketing, and armed robberies in. As a precaution, one should avoid wearing excessive jewelry and visibly carrying cellular phones, valuables or large sums of money when walking in downtown areas. In the event that one’s passport is stolen or lost, or that one experiences a threatening situation, it should be reported immediately to the local police and the U.S. Embassy's Consular Section.
Americans living or traveling in Honduras are encouraged to register with the U.S. Embassy through the State Department’s travel registration website http://step.state.gov so that they can obtain updated information on travel and security within Honduras. Additional information is also available through the Consular Information page for Honduras at:
