Teguicigalpa Do’s

  • Do take along small bills for spending money. Most shops, except those in large commercial districts, can’t exchange large bills of any currency. To protect against pickpockets, travelers may want to divide up their cash into small quantities to put in different places.
  • Bring your passport and a copy. Make 2 copies of your passport. Leave one at home.
  • Leave your drugs at home.
