Bargaining

Crafts are fairly rare in Honduras, so you won’t have to haggle while shopping. Prices for many services are fixed, so there shouldn’t be any need to bargain: in large cities, for example, both colectivos and private taxis have a single fixed price for rides around town. Ask at your hotel what taxis should cost – if you get in knowing what the price should be, most drivers won’t argue.

Money

There are at least four ATMs around town, including Banco Atlantida.
