Traveling to Teguciglapa in December 2018

Hello!

We plan to travel to Tegucigalpa in December for a wedding, at Zamorano university.

US state department has a level 3 travel alert (Reconsider your travels)

I'm concerned....

Is the airport safe and should we be concerned traveling from the airport to Zamorano University

I hear the University area is Beautiful.

Any locals out there that can please give me some tips, it would me most appreciated!

When I arrive in Tegus, I'm met and transported by locals. I'd ask your local contacts to make arrangements to pick you up.

Here's my reply from the other thread you asked your question.

https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g29202…

The US State Department has an alert everywhere except for themselves. America should be on that list!

Meanwhile, take precautions as you would when you go to a place where you don't know. Don't flaunt your wealth (keep your fine jewelry at home), walk around at night by yourself, or dabble in dangerous activities (don't buy or sell drugs, go home with a stranger or join gangs). Most of the "alerts" are gang related. That's the reason why families want to flee the country and take their children to seek asylum "up north."

Ask your wedding sponsors to arrange for a driver who will be waiting at the airport for you.

Smile and the world will smile back. Touch others with kindness and kindness will be returned. Learn basic Spanish for hello, please and thank you. You'll be surprised at what a difference it'll make! The people are beautiful.

Enjoy your wedding!

the last time my mother visited me from the UK, she flew into the u.s. via miami and had to spend the night. the british government sent her a warning about Miami, it said foreign tourists are often targeted by criminals there and crimes involving guns are common..

its all relative but as others have said, just take sensible precautions and ask your hosts or your hotel to arrange taxi's for you.

Thank you all for your suggestions! it is much appreciated.

We will be mindful of our surroundings and keep valuables at home.

We are originally from Miami and speak Spanish, and we are no stranger to challenging areas.

Thanks again for your words of wisdom!
