Hello everyone,

Old clichés die hard, as the saying goes... and living in Honduras can generate lots of misconceptions in the eyes of the people.

What are the most common misconceptions about the expat lifestyle in Honduras?

What are the most common clichés about life in Honduras in general?

Did you have a biased view of the country before moving there? What is you view now?

Thanks in advance,


A lot of this depends on if one needs to work or is on a pension. Any way the rules of engagement are totally different in Honduras. Fair play rarely exists, so whoever you are watch your wallet!

Good Advice.  Regardless of your financial status to most Hondurans your a millionaire.  Remember, your in a third world country where professional people make a small fraction of what they would make elsewhere.

Good question!

Misconceptions might be that there is only Spanish in Honduras. Actually people speak English, Chorti, Garifuna and Miskito languages and dialects.
