Honduras is NOT Safe!
Dec 03, 2013
Honduras’ mainland is not often highlighted as an ideal retirement/vacation destination. There’s no specific reason for this, aside from having popular neighbors (Belize, Roatan, etc.) that steal the spotlight. The reality is, this stretch of the Caribbean is breathtakingly beautiful and downright cheap. But don’t take our word for it… visit on a Discovery Weekend!
Do you enjoy illegal drugs, getting impaired with folks (local or otherwise) you just met and then walking back to your home or hotel in the middle of the night, down streets you aren’t familiar with? Well then… for your safety, heed our advice and stay out of Honduras’ major cities! In fact… you may want to consider staying out of all major cities – including those in North America.
On the flip side, if you enjoy lush cloud forests, warm, sparkling ocean waters, endless beaches and charming, historic towns, then Honduras may definitely be worth a look for you! Specifically Trujillo… located on the shores of the Caribbean, this beautiful town is already known for it’s historic background (go HERE to learn more), and is set to boom as a new cruise ship terminal starts accepting it’s first ships.
Here’s the reality… Honduras can be dangerous. Heck, it is dangerous! But if you’re considering a retirement home or a pre-retirement home that you can enjoy either seasonally or fulltime, chances are you your plans don’t include cavorting with sketchy characters at all hours of the night. And if that in fact is your plan, you may want to look at cities a few hundred kilometers away from Trujillo… you’ll have much more luck getting into trouble in other areas – Trujillo isn’t exactly known as the hub of all things dangerous and criminal in Honduras.
In fact, quite the opposite; Trujillo is gaining a reputation as an ideal location for tourism and living. Not only is it naturally beautiful, but it’s also affordable, and that’s a big draw for North Americans looking to invest their hard-earned money in foreign real estate. Our developer, Caribbean Lots, is building custom homes in a spectacular gated community – so if safety is a concern, you can be rest-assured that protection is (almost) literally at your doorstep.
But don’t take our word for it… check it out for yourself! Visit on a Discovery Weekend to see exactly what you’re missing and what’s still available for you to take advantage of. If you’ve been toying with the idea of purchasing property abroad, it’s time to get off the computer and get your feet on the ground. You could spend your entire life researching a location, and finding something wrong with every single place. Instead, check it out! Discover what you’re missing!
