What do I need to know before moving to Tela?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Tela, they said...

"Tela is a small town located on the northern Caribbean coast of Honduras, known for its beautiful beaches and natural parks. Before moving to Tela, expats should know that Spanish is the official language of Honduras, so it would be beneficial to learn some basic Spanish phrases. The cost of living in Tela is relatively low compared to many Western countries, but expats should be aware that salaries are also generally lower. Tela has a tropical climate with high humidity and temperatures, so lightweight, breathable clothing is recommended. Healthcare facilities in Tela are basic, and for serious medical conditions, you may need to travel to larger cities. Therefore, it's advisable to have comprehensive health insurance that covers medical evacuation. Safety can be a concern in Honduras, including in Tela. Expats should take precautions such as avoiding certain areas at night, not displaying signs of wealth, and keeping doors and windows securely locked. Public transportation in Tela is limited, so having a car can be beneficial. However, driving in Honduras can be challenging due to poor road conditions and different driving habits. The cuisine in Tela is heavily based on seafood, rice, beans, and tropical fruits. If you have specific dietary requirements or restrictions, you may need to plan accordingly. Tela is home to the Jeannette Kawas National Park and the Lancetilla Botanical Garden, offering plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. The town has a slower pace of life compared to larger cities, which can be a significant change for some expats. Finally, it's important to note that while Tela offers a laid-back lifestyle and natural beauty, it lacks some amenities and services that you might be used to in larger cities or in your home country," explained one expat living in Tela, Honduras.
