Health and Safety

Health isn't a concern in the capital; stick with bottled water and you should be fine.

Tegucigalpa is generally safe, provided you dress down, don't wear flashy jewelry or watches, and avoid handling money in public. It's a good idea to keep your money in your front pocket rather than a back one, where it is easier to steal. In markets and other crowded areas, hold purses or handbags close to the body; thieves use knives to slice the bottom of a bag and catch the contents as they fall out. Avoid walking anywhere at night. Taxis should be your only mode of transportation after dark.
