I know things are constantly changing so maybe my information is out of date.

Thanks,

That's not how it looked to us. We tried 2 different places and they chased us out. I would not leave our boat anchored out in the open alone to go ashore around there.

Re: Upcoming Trip From Florida to Roatan and a Few Points in Between

I have one more question. Triumphant and belizesailor both emphasized to stay away from the mainland of Honduras, don't even be within sight.

Why is that? Is it the government, drug trade issues, pirates?

I have read very few problems that are reported on line regarding issues with sailing the mainland of Honduras.

Thanks,

Jeff

Security issues. Many in recent years icluding armed robbery & murder. See Security section on NoonSite's Honduras page and all the related reports on the right sidebar.
