U.S. Embassy in Honduras Tells Americans to Stay Home

The Department of State, on its website, is encouraging Americans not to visit Honduras, where an unstable political situation has led to sporadic demonstrations.

"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,” according to the site.

On June 28, 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.  The U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa “strongly recommends” American citizens to check the Embassy's website for the latest information on curfews. The U.S. Embassy has restricted the travel of its staff within Honduras to necessary trips. The decision to lift or continue those restrictions will be made on a day-to-day basis.
