When we asked people about diversity in Honduras and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Culturally diversified and the general attitude is "live and let live" Mixed races co-exist here with very little racial tension," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to La Ceiba, Honduras.

"The area is very diversified. You will meet locals, mainlanders who moved for employment who aren't always bi-lingual like islanders, Americans, Canadians, and Australians. But you will also find Central & South Americans. Overall everyone is very pleasant to each other. As an American I was worried about being accepted but that hasn't been the case. Most locals rely on tourists financially so they are eager to please and assist. But you do need to treat everyone with respect. There is poverty due to COVID and the stop of cruise ship visits. I don't mind giving a child a dollar or helping someone who is trying to sell a hand-made item. I don't always give money every time asked and the local vendors get to know the full-timers versus visitors. Vendors recognize you are not interested in buying tourist items so they just move on," commented one expat who made the move to Roatan, Honduras.
