Planning to relocate

I've been researching Honduras for quite some time now and would like to know the official do's and donts since I've never been. I know about the violence and crime plaguing the country and would like to know if there's any way to avoid it? I am Honduran/Mexican American and have extended family living in Honduras east of San pedro sula but I'm not in contact or even know any of them. Also are there any sort of "groups" for expatriates in Honduras? If so where are they usually held? I'm new here so any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Where in Honduras are you planning to relocate to? There are a few yahoo groups that you might want to join (living in Honduras, and a few for Roatan as well), and if Roatan is your planned destination, there are Facebook groups too (Roatan Community, Roatan Garage Sale), which can be helpful with getting questions answered before you go and once you're here. Couchsurfing is also a great community (www.couchsurfing.com) : even if you don't want to stay at anyone's home, you can meet up with members for a coffee, or just write them for information, and there are sometimes group meet-ups planned.
The areas with the reputations for the most crime are San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa. Many expats live in Roatan, Utila and Copan, and I think there's a pretty strong expat community in La Ceiba and maybe Trujillo too (there's a new development there that seems to be attracting a lot of Canadian investors).

I'm already living in San pedro sula. Colonia bohgran near Cabanas. And yes I'm aware that this is in fact one of the most dangerous cities around the world. But even so I like it here. I was just wondering how I go about getting in contact with expatriates here since I'm feeling a tad bit homesick. Maybe talking to fellows US natives would help with all the stress and anxiety associated with moving to another country. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Also if you could elaborate a bit more on the yahoo groups available that would be great. Thanks in advance!:)

Hi- I'm in Tela, not SPS, but would be great to be able to go there and know someone, or vice-versa

Well I could travel to tela so we could hang out or possibly take a look around. I know a few places in sps we could check out as well. Do you speak Spanish?
