Where Is Honduras Located?

Reviewed by Lief Simon

Lief Simon is the managing editor of Global Property Advisor, Simon Letter, and Offshore Living Letter. He has purchased more than 45 properties, investing in 23 different countries around the world.

Visualize Honduras as a semi-triangular pie-shaped country wedged between Nicaragua to the east, El Salvador to the southwest, and Guatemala to the west, with a small port on the Pacific coast and some 800 kilometers of coast on the Caribbean side.

Honduras is primarily rural. Its two biggest cities are Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula.

The easiest way to navigate Honduras is by first-class bus or 30-minute plane rides, with the prices set by the government and cheap. If the weather is bumpy, the bus can be a better option but slower.

Most of the expats and retirees living on mainland Honduras have flocked to the north of the country, beginning at Copan, variously described as the Athens and the Paris of the Mayan world.

Copan Ruinas, 20 minutes from the Guatemalan border or three hours by a good bus from San Pedro (Hedman-Alas, US$18 first class), is a small hillside town of colonial-style houses and inns, red-tile roofs, and cobblestone streets. Situated in the western highlands at 3,500 feet, the weather is temperate (75ºF to 80ºF).

The population is about 5,000 people, including about 60 retired expatriates of an amazing variety. Primarily a tourist destination for the magnificent Mayan ruins located on the outskirts of the town, some 200,000 tourists pass through every year.

You can apply for a gun permit as a legal resident in Panama, Belize, Nicaragua, and Ecuador.
