Health and Safety
A hat with a brim, plenty of sunscreen, and a filled water bottle are musts in this sunbaked region. Riptides on the Pacific coast always pose a risk for swimmers. Never swim alone—that's sound advice anywhere—but especially on Isla del Tigre's oft-unpopulated beaches.
Hospital del Sur in Choluteca is the region's largest hospital.
