Welcome to San Pedro Sula

Indeed, the city is on an upswing, falling from the world's most violent city (outside of a war zone) most recently in 2015, to number 26 in 2018. The city is doable for travelers for a day or two but you should still be cautious, especially after dark.

Few linger however: there are few sights, little cultural life, and the sultry climate can be oppressive. Since San Pedro's international airport is a main entry point and its bus station a crucial travel hub, you're very likely to pass through.
