Travel Alert Issued for Honduras

Due to ongoing protests in Honduras, The Department of State issued a travel alert there on Wednesday. According to the site, “The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the current unstable political and security situation in Honduras, and recommends that American citizens defer all non-essential travel to Honduras until further notice.”

This travel alert expires on July 29. On Sunday, the Honduran military ousted President Manuel Zelaya and sent him out of the country.  There are military or police checkpoints throughout Tegucigalpa, and there have been reports of sporadic demonstrations.

“The Department of State recommends that American citizens residing in and visiting Honduras remain close to their homes or hotels unless their travel is of a life or death nature, or a scheduled departure from Honduras, and that U.S. citizens restrict travel within the country to necessary trips,” according to the alert.
