Honduras Travel Advisory Lifted

Honduras Travel Advisory Lifted

December 29, 2009

In June, the U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory warning potential travelers to avoid all non-essential travel to Honduras.  After a politically tumultuous six months, the travel advisory has been lifted.  The State Department believes that the country is now safe for all travelers.   The country has increased security since the military coup.

In November, Honduras held a peaceful and, apparently, transparent election.  Porfirio Lobo Sosa was elected as the new president, receiving over 56 percent of the votes.  His term will begin on January 27, 2010.

The country has suffered greatly from the decreased tourism.  The industry is estimating that the coup, and subsequent travel advisory, decreased tourism by fifty percent this year.  If you were one of the unfortunate people that had to cancel travel plans, contact your travel agent to reschedule your trip.
