What do I need to know before moving to Comayagua?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Comayagua, they said:

"Comayagua, is a city rich in history and culture, known for its Spanish colonial architecture and ancient ruins. Before moving there, expats should be aware of several important factors. Firstly, Spanish is the primary language spoken in Comayagua, so it would be beneficial to learn the language or at least basic phrases. English is not widely spoken, especially outside of the tourist areas. The cost of living in Comayagua is relatively low compared to many Western countries. However, the average income is also lower, so it's important to have a reliable source of income or savings. Healthcare facilities in Comayagua are not as advanced as in many Western countries. While basic medical care is available, serious or complex medical issues may require travel to a larger city or even out of the country. Safety can be a concern in Honduras, including Comayagua. While the city is generally safer than some other parts of the country, crime, including violent crime, does occur. It's important to take precautions, such as avoiding certain areas at night and not displaying signs of wealth. Public transportation is available in Comayagua, but it may not be as reliable or comfortable as expats are used to. Many people choose to drive, but be aware that driving conditions and traffic rules can be very different from those in Western countries. The climate in Comayagua is tropical, with hot temperatures and high humidity year-round. It's important to be prepared for this, especially if you're not used to such a climate. Finally, while Comayagua offers a range of amenities, it may not have all the comforts and conveniences expats are used to from home. It's important to be adaptable and open to new experiences," remarked one expat who made the move to Comayagua.
