General Tips When Traveling to Honduras

It's the little things that count


Covid Info


1) Airports in Honduras are open to international and domestic travel. All passengers are required to pre-register online with Honduran Immigration authorities here prior to arrival. You should bring a physical and digital copy of the form with you.


2) All visitors must present, either (when we visited March 2022):

  • Proof of a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine (eg: the EU DCC). The last dose must have been administered more than 14 days prior to the date of travel; or

  • A negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test, dated no more than 72 hours before the date of your arrival in Honduras. (LINK)

Plug size

(SAME AS USA!) You should always google the electrical outlet situation in other countries you visit as it can vary drastically and be incompatible with your devices resulting in damage.

Luckily, for Honduras there are two associated plug types, types A and B which are the same as the US. Plug type A is the plug which has two flat parallel pins and plug type B is the plug which has two flat parallel pins and a grounding pin. Honduras operates on a 120V supply voltage and 60Hz.


Sales Tax


Sales tax is a whopping 15% on credit card transactions, 18% if buying alcohol. This means you want to pay in tax as much as possible. Vendors will appreciate this too as they don’t have to pay tax on the income.

For example, we rented a boat to take us from Roatan to Utila for about $600 using a credit card. That same trip would have been about $500 using cash, saving us $100. It's definitely worth it to take out some cash when paying for larger expenses if you can safely do so. Honduran currency is the Lempira, 1 = 5 cents. The exchange rate is here. (LINK)
