Thank God for Honduras!

Summary: Gracias, Honduras is a true hidden jewel - totally unspoiled and much like a century ago. You'll need to know Spanish as this town of 12,000 has less than a dozen expats, but this peaceful place offers a low cost of living, little crime and one of the largest tracts of cloud forest left in Central America.

LITTLE CRIME? THIS IS PROPAGANDA! Honduras is one of the most dangerous places on the planet and equally as corrupt as the Middle East.

Warning: I do a LOT of speculation in this post, so it's just poilbsse I may guess some SPOILERS. If by chance I guess something close to the truth, consider yourselves warned!.....Beautiful twist, perfectly telegraphed! This really messes up the entire situation, switching Velia from victim to potential villain, given how quickly she was willing to consider going out with Fausto even as she was still involved with Lou. Still to come: does Fausto know he's being set up, and how might he feel about all this (hint: might be a good idea to keep Vicky away from him!)BTW, between Tina's Groove and Velia, Dear, this is at least the third time we're seeing your spit-take sound effect. Are you trying to coin a new term here?

One hysterical person wrote and implied that my article was propaganda concerning the level of crime in Honduras. Yes in the large cities there is a high level of crime but it is mostly between gangs etc. nothing to worry most tourists. Gracias is a safe area as are other locations in Honduras.

Expats talk about some of the biggest challenges they've faced living in Latin America. Whether you're moving to Panama City or Punta del Este, this article is a must read to help you prepare (hint: you'll be much happier if you learn the language) and adjust your expectations (realities: the roads are rough, the pace of life is slower and bureaucracy is unavoidable).
