Ports of Call
The currency in Honduras is the Lempira (HNL), which is subdivided into 100 centavos. Denominations are 10, 20 and 50 centavos. It is best to travel on the US Dollar as it is the more favourable exchange currency, but banks in larger cities will occasionally exchange Euros and Canadian Dollars. American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard and Visa are widely accepted in Honduras. ATMs are widely available.
