Honduras Customs & Etiquettes

Hondurans tend to be friendly, unassuming and somewhat formal. It is a good idea to spend time getting to know people before using their first names or launching into business discussions. Politeness and respectfulness are the norm. Punctuality is not given as high a priority as it is in North America and Europe. Men should always remove their hats before entering a church or someone's home. The way of life on the Bay Islands is considerably less conservative than in highland cities.

Both islanders and mainlanders put a high value on friendliness, respect and the ability to get along with others. A big smile and plenty of patience will often smooth over any difficulties.

Don't be alarmed by unexpected loud noises – Hondurans often celebrate events with firecrackers, sometimes in the early morning hours.
