There have been two different events that had a big impact in the Golf alternatives in Honduras last year. The first was the Covid-19 pandemic, that pushed the country into a lockdown. The second were the back-to-back tropical storms ETA & IOTA. These storms caused heavy flooding in the Sula Valley.

Yes, after more than two months, the San Pedro Sula Airport reopens! The San Pedro Sula airport is the main gateway into Honduras. There are more flights and airlines operating to this airport that there are to Toncontin International Airport in Tegucigalpa. In addition to the disruption of passenger service, this is also the main air cargo terminal in Honduras.

Is San Pedro Sula the murder capital of the World? The truth is that a news article titled “San Pedro Sula, the Murder Capital of the World” is catchy. It also makes any press correspondent sound as a brave professional willing to risk his life for a good story.
