What not to do when visiting Honduras

1/4
Marker Honduras
Business & Communication

Don’t forget to shake hands when greeting. Informally, just a nod with the verbal greeting is common between men and women. Light hug and a cheek kiss are common between friends and family.

Tick
2/4
Marker Honduras
Business & Communication

Don’t show off with expensive things or wearing shiny jewellery - keep a low profile and not get attention for small crimes.

3/4
Marker Honduras
Business & Communication

Don’t always expect direct communication. Most people tend to be indirect, and you will rarely hear ”I don’t know” or similar expressions they don’t want to sound unfriendly.

Did you know

Did you know?

In Honduras, it is not uncommon to meet blond natives with blue eyes – they are descendants of the pirates.
