Honduras What to Pack

  • The Bare Necessities

    Think small and waterproof - you'll be climbing in and out of boats and ferrys and it may be raining Water shoes (the coral is killer) are a must. Ours were croc-like slip-ons that were so bouyant they doubled as snorkeling aids! For travel to and from the island, sneakers or other light, quick-drying non-skid shoes would be a good...

  • Summer Packing

    Travelling by bus is difficult with large bags and suitcases so a medium-sized internal frame backpack works well. Depending on what you are doing, all you may need are hiking boots or tennis shoes and sandals. People generally do not wear shorts, so unless you want to stick out more than you already will, don't bring shorts (it is ok for places...


    Honduras is certainly an 'off the beaten track' kind of place to travel in but to have lived there for over a year was certainly an experience I am unlikely ever to forget. For both my trips to Honduras I actually lugged a suitcase across the country! It is possible but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. With the amount of bus travel necessary a...

  • Flea collars for humans

    Some people (like my brother) are extremely sensitive to sand fly bites. So much so that they quickly turn from itchy bites to puss oozing infections that can swell your entire ankle and foot to the point that you require medical attention.So, if you don't want to be eaten alive by sand flies while visiting the Bay Islands, buy some flea collars...

  • Batteries and Film are expensive

    If your backpacking or here to travel, bring a good water resistant backpack. Don´t bring a piece of luggage that has wheels. Depending on the season and where your going bring shorts, swimsuit, short sleeve shirts, good walking/hiking boots, sandals for the beach, 1-2 long sleeve shirt and pants, a good water resisitant jacket If your out in the...

  • Insect Repellent and Anti Itch Cream

    It rains daily for part of the year so remember a rain jacket....I would also recommend long sleve shirt and pants to help protect you from sand flees Bring what you'll need for the trip. Film and processing is very expensive here. Bug repellent and anti itch cream is a must. Don't let sand fleas ruin your trip!

  • Packing List

    Okay, so you don't want to look like a tourist. First of all change your attitude. Don't feel sorry for the poor, as pity is very obvious, showing that since you have pity, you must know better, therefore you have money. For your luggage, don't bring your new North Face bag and fancy rolling suitcases. You want to fit in? Try a cardboard box. No...

  • Packing List

    An oversize back pack works best - you can pretty much keep the main essentials with you at all times and not draw attention to money and valuables. Comfortable tennis shoes. I don't suggest open toe sandals because there are scorpions and large spiders in this area.Light colored clothing if traveling during February - the average temperature was...

  • Packing List

    Backpacking may be the best way to move thorugh Honduras... Light clothes, swimming suits, sandals, trecking shoes, hat. mosquito repelent, sun block lenses, films and batteries and a a cool bag to store them..., better if waterproof... sun glasses!!

  • Packing List

    a medium size backpack that is small enough for airline carry-on. bring light weight clothing, comfortable sandles live tevas, thongs for in the shower, if diving a bathingsuit. Bring any medication perscriptions you need, tampons, bandaids, bug repellent!!!!!

  • Packing List

    Carying a guitar, I have to go super-lite on everything else. No preocupes, you can get one-day laundry service, and you can be a bit dirty, just like camping.I resisted getting an umbrella, but finally gave in. I got one there for $2. Clothes are very inexpensive, because they make a lot of it in San Pedro for export to US. Take enuf film. OK,...

  • Packing List

    Take a backpack preferably with some sort of day pack and a drink bottle holder. Light clothing.....100% cotton is best and a sweater and light rain jacket for the colder nights. Doesn't get that cold though about 15 degrees celsius is the lowest. Take all required medicines or at least find out their generic name before you go. Many american...

  • Packing List

    Duffels with wheels on one end work especially well and always plan on 1 day of clothing in your carry-on. Be sure to pack the contents of your luggage within large plastic bags to protect from wet weather or when traveling by boat. Casual clothing will work for most situations, but I like to have 'real' shoes (not sneakers) for nicer restaurants....
