Dec 5th 2009 8:15AM Thank you for the truth. I have lived on Roatan for close to 5 years and have never had a violent encounter with a Honduran. The country of Honduras is full of peaceful and welcoming people. Many people that visit the Cayos Cochinos Islands(part of the Bay Islands) say it was the best day of there entire lives. This place is that Pristine to allow the well traveled to boast about . Places Like Infinity Bay are building the best Sewer system in the World and intend to have Real Eco Tours. Belize is great but they do not have beaches like in the bay Islands. I love Caye Caulker but it is a far cry from West Bay Beach on Roatan( Despite not having Tina's back packers Hostel)
I walk unprotected all the time any place on Roatan. There seems to be more(crime of passion) crime due to people getting them selves into it just like any other place on earth. Honduras is as safe as any major city in the U.S.A. The bay Island voice get the story wrong all the time. If you believe the media you are out of touch. I give this warning to Travelers heading to Honduras- Don't Worry
