on the Honduras forum on April 16, 2014:
For the Investor Residence in Honduras is required a letter from the bank.
What should the letter say?
Is it about having a good standing or showing the bank account?
Also: How often does one with the Investor status must leave the country?
They caught the guy at least. None of my clients have had issues here over the past 7-8 years in La Ceiba.
Foreigners are not targets here.

Thank you Chris for your reply.
I just found this article from Yesterday:
"Cruise lines cancel stops at Roatan in Honduras following the shooting of a crew member this month".
This really is a concern.
How can the people survive without tourism?

on the Honduras forum on April 14, 2014:
The media describes Honduras as the most dangerous country in the world; however what they miss out on is telling the truth behind all the organized crimes affecting only those involved with Norco trafficking and local gangs. Honduras offers much more than what the media perpetrates.
Honduras is located in the heart of Central America a 2 ½ hour flight from most airport of the east coast of United States. Honduras is the land of opportunity for many foreign companies with the majority from the U.S. such as; Marriott Hotels, Hyatt, Fruit of the Looms, Alcoa and many more. Honduras has the 5th largest sea port in the world and the only one in Central America with a U.S Customs operating 24 hours a day. Currently in progress is the development of a dry canal which will connect from La Union, El Salvador to Puerto Cortes, Honduras. Making it much cost effective and much less time consuming for businesses to import and export goods versus using the Panama Canal.
Of the North Coast of Honduras the Bay Island are located a few minutes from the main land. Roatan had been the most visited island by tourist, because of its beautiful turquoise waters, and stunning sunsets. Located few miles of Roatan Island are the largest reef system in the Caribbean and the second largest coral reef in the world making it a great destination for tourist from all over the world and great place for scuba diving. Certainly an experience no one can forget.
Honduras should also be known for its distinguished advanced medical clinics. Many health care treatments cost a fraction of what the cost would be in the U.S. Also medication are easy to obtain and very affordable. The cost of living is significantly cheaper allowing anyone savings to ensure a better quality of life for a longer period of time.

Please post your experience while traveling Honduras?
I would also like to state that when The US states that there are …. lets say 27 "Amercian citizens" that have been killed or robed or… in Honduras over a certain time…. I do NOT count and The US should NOT count a Honduran going to The US receiving citizenship then going back to Honduras and being wounded in a negative way.
gringa1979…. I understand somewhat of what you stated.
"Regular people" to most that have and will read this post are foreigners. Foreigners that are visiting or living in Honduras. These people are less likely to be hurt by a crime like your boyfriend. This is a fact.

Since I'm moving to Honduras in just a few months, I decided to base one of my English essays on how to live in Honduras as an American. I've heard loads of scary stories and people keep giving me different info on how to protect myself. If anyone would be willing to chat with me for a little bit and give me their insider view on how to live their, I would appreciate it greatly.
If you're interested, please email me at email@example.com
Would love to see you post your essay here, I think it will provide valuable information for folks. Good luck!
Go to the coast to visit and vacation but to live the best and most peaceful place is Valle de Los Angeles which is about 40 minutes from Tegu up in the mountains with a nice climate and no crime.

Just bought double beachfront lots from PDR. Can't wait to be a beach bum! This massive gated community will be the highlight of LaCeiba!
The other developments there don't compare.....I checked it out myself....well worth the trip to do your due diligence.
Sorry, couldn't contain my enthusiasm! The guys representing this development are great to deal with.
Would like to hear from other PDR buyers.
Research on your own by simply doing a Google search. Your post is similar to the ones on other country forums.
why what's going on?
Nice cabin on a beautiful tropical beach, room mate needed.
This great third floor villa is freshly refurnished with a foldout couch for that extra guest. Terrific ocean views

I've lived in La Ceiba now for 7 years and building beach homes over the years here. You can see some cool videos @ http://www.youtube.com/honduraschris
I'm married to a Honduran and understand getting the shake for $. Good friends or family are hard to come by. So you are already ahead of the game.

yes 7 years is quite abit of time,but the cost of living in nyc is way out of line to retire. my wife has her two sons,plus a large family all in la ceiba,.if I moved else where it would only cost for visits to see her family,and kids. I still keep in touch on a regular bases with afew people . and her family never shakes me for $. are you working or are you retired I hope most of your experiences in la ceiba have been good . anywhere you go now you have to select the right people to hang with. keep in touch bob p.s. how long have you been down there ,I left in 2006-2007.
