Honduras is a country in Central America.

It borders Nicaragua to the south, Guatemala to the north and El Salvador to the north-west and west.

Hitchhiking is generally easy in Honduras. It is a very poor country and a lot of people don't have cars. Rides come readily from people with pick-up trucks and it is not rare to see locals hitch-hiking.

Like in most of Central-America, there are lots of minibusses and not so easy to spot taxis on the road, be sure you know if you're paying or hitching free when you climb in any type of vehicle. Here people refer to hitch-hiking as "ride", "hacer ride" and "buscar un ride" are common expressions.
