Each hotel room has a safe for your use – which is strongly recommended. It is recommended you store any electronics (i.e. tablets, laptops, etc.) as well as your wallet/money, your passport (and photocopies), and other valuables.
What food(s) am I to avoid?
Do not drink any water unless it is bottled or has been certified as “purified”. Same goes for the ice. When in doubt, stick with bottled water, soda, or juice (without ice).
Do not buy or eat any fresh produce from local vendors. The water supply is not as clean as we are used to and will very likely cause stomach issues if consumed.
As a rule of thumb, do not get lettuce, tomato, or ice when ordering unless given then “okay” to do so. Most of the restaurants and our meals at the hotel are all safe to eat, but if in question, stay clear. We do our best to eat at restaurants where the fruits, veggies, and ice is safe.
What vaccines are recommended?
The only recommended immunization needed is a current Tetanus Shot. We are not there at the buggy time of the year. However, the Malaria vaccine is recommended but it not required. Consult your physician or your local Travel Center at if you have any questions or concerns.

Is Comayagua, Honduras safe?
Both the hotel and Lion’s Club compound are very safe – gated and guarded by security. We have been assured that Comayagua is unaffected by any travel advisories. We fly into Tegucigalpa and have door-to-door transportation arranged.
ALWAYS USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM! Comayagua is safe during the day. There will be NO venturing out on your own at any time, and we will ALWAYS stay together in groups with a Honduran host or one of the trip leaders.
The hotel does have security (on-site guards, gates, and a safe in each room).
