It is important to be aware of the security situation when travelling by bus in Honduras. In some of the bigger cities, notably San Pedro Sula and to a slightly lesser extent Tegucigalpa, local buses are not safe to use. Inter-city buses have been subject to armed robberies to such an extent that many services have a soldier on board. Always take a taxi to/from bus terminals, and don’t travel on any buses after dark.
