Honduras is another Central American country the U.S. government advises Americans to reconsider traveling to because of crime such as extortion, rape, and narcotics and human trafficking. Since 2010, Honduras has had one of the highest murder rates in the world.
Violent crime remains an issue. Bandits have been known to attack vehicles bringing tourists to hotels from the airport. Americans are advised not to travel to the region of Gracias a Dios where danger is elevated because of the lack of emergency services.
