  • Honduras is an extremely inexpensive destination. For US$15 a day or less, budget travelers will be able to eat three meals and sleep in a relatively clean room. High rollers in the big city can still squeak by on US$50 a day, and that includes a several-course meal or two.

    Most businesses deal exclusively in lempiras, and the US dollar is the only currency that's easily exchanged; away from the borders it's even difficult to change Guatemalan, Salvadoran or Nicaraguan notes. Lloyd's Bank in Tegucigalpa will change Canadian, British and German currency. Black-market exchange rates are usually comparable to bank rates.

    Most Hondurans do not tip. In places where tourism has left its mark, tipping is more common, usually anything from a little loose change up to 10% of the bill. Bargaining is not as common in Honduras as in other Latin American countries, but at outdoor markets you might be able to save a lempira or two.
