-–>SAVING MONEY: The Best Day to Book Airfare
-Visitors from 69 countries currently need a visa to visit Honduras, which costs $30 USD. Travelers from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France and other countries are exempt. Full list
-Visitors from nearly four dozen Latin American and African countries need to show proof of yellow fever vaccination, according to the tourism department. Travelers from other countries are exempt.
-The US State Department has an active travel warning for large areas of Honduras. Even the country’s own tourism agency acknowledges on its website: “Honduras still has some way to go to recover and improve public safety.” Another page of the same website notes that “several factors have impaired progress and caused setbacks,” toward improving security.
-If you want to save money while docking in Roatan on a cruise, and you have good time-management skills so your ride home doesn’t leave without you, then consider booking excursions on your own, like Mark did, even if it’s just to a nearby beach or restaurant.
If you’re not feeling quite that adventurous, you can still save a significant amount by booking an excursion through sites such as CruiseCompete which offers “third-party shore excursion providers.” You can search by port.
