You want to meet Honduran women, right?
No matter if you’re looking for a bride, a girlfriend, or a lover…there’s one thing you need to know about dating in this country.
No, I’m not a pussy. I’ve been to quite a few South American countries, but I have to be honest. I’ve never been to Honduras.
This article is not based on my own experience.
It’s based on two conversations I had with men who’ve been to this place. One of them is a loyal reader of this site. The other one is a popular blogger. They both met local girls online and dated them.
…and they survived it.
“Sebastian, stop being such a pussy. You sound like a woman.” I hear you saying.
Well, have a look at this statistic. A country with less than 10 million people has two cities in the top four. Top for what? Homicides. You are more likely to get killed in Honduras than in some Venezuelan cities. And Venezuela is on the verge of collapse.
Here’s my point:
Date Honduran girls at your own risk and appreciate your time in a dangerous candy store…
Dating Honduran Girls is Like Stealing Candy from A Child
Why is it so easy to date the women in this country?
1. Most girls had bad experiences with local guys.
2. They are totally into gringos.
3. They never meet one.
I’m pretty sure that none of your friends went to Honduras for a relaxed vacation. I also bet that your parents have never been to this country (unless they were born there). Most guys, no matter if black or white, don’t go there.
It’s not a popular tourist destination.
That’s why it’s so easy to meet and date local women. They are starving for men who treat them better than the local guys, which is not that hard. Yes, they are starving for gringos like you.
Are Honduran Women as Beautiful as Costa Rican Girls?
To be honest, I think that Honduran girls are on the same level as the women in Costa Rica.
Okay, maybe I’m just super horny. I logged into my Latin American Cupid dashboard and compared the girls of both countries. They are hot. God, I love Latinas.
Anyway, here’s why you’ll find the right girl for you:
Most so-called Afro-Hondurans are Garifuna. They are descendants of indigenous Caribbean people and West Africans. Yep, these are the sexy dark-skinned ladies you can’t take your eyes off.
Honduran women are gorgeous.
America Ferrera, Rocsi Diaz, Francia Raisa and your future girlfriend are just some examples.
It’s Surprisingly Easy to Meet English-Speaking Girls in Honduras
Did you know that a lot of women in Honduras speak English?
I’m not kidding.
I know. It’s one of the poorest and most violent countries in South America. But they learn English at an early age. I talked to a few girls online. They all spoke English. But hey, maybe you don’t believe me because everyone says that you can’t find anyone who speaks English in this country.
Well, they are lying.
Besides the Philippines, Honduras is one of the most popular countries for American companies to build call centers. You can meet a lot of bilingual girls.
The Type of Guy a Catracha Wants to Meet
Every Honduran woman wants to date a gentleman.
Don’t even think about bad boy game. You can do that in the USA. You won’t be successful in Honduras. If you approach a girl as an aggressive alpha male, she’ll run away and scream for the police.
Murderers are everywhere. She’s scared.
Here’s the vibe you want to give off:
Take her hand and lead her across the street. It’s a dangerous country. She wants to feel safe. Give her the feeling that you can protect her emotionally, physically and yes, financially and she’ll be yours.
Meet Sexy Honduran Girls on Latin American Cupid
God, you can meet so many singles on the largest Honduran dating site.
Nope, there’s no Honduran Cupid. That doesn’t exist. But there is Latin American Cupid. And yes, it’s the best dating site to meet women in this country…and the only one I found. But hey, it would also be the best if it wasn’t the only one.

The 3 Best Cities to Meet Women in Honduras
What’s the easiest way to meet women from Honduras?
I just shared it with you. Online dating is the winner...hands-down.
You don’t want to approach women on the streets of Honduras. You can do that in Los Angeles or New York. But you can’t do it in San Pedro Sula.
Neither day game nor night game works in a country with that many homicides. You can, however, meet girls online and take them on dates. But you can only do that if you go to cities that have a lot of potential dating venues AND that are relatively safe.
Here’s my list…
Do NOT Meet Honduran Women in San Pedro Sula
Let’s start with the most popular city in Honduras.
It’s the one city that every self-proclaimed expert tells you to visit because, well, because everyone says so. I’m here to tell you the opposite.
Do NOT visit San Pedro Sula.
The only cities in the world that are more dangerous are Acapulco and Caracas. I’m not saying this because I’m a wimp. I say this because I love you (no homo). I love to meet my readers and I would love to meet you…but not in a coffin.
Heck, dating Salvadorian women is less risky than picking up girls in San Pedro Sula.
Please don’t go.
Meet Honduran Women in Tegucigalpa
Why don’t you visit Tegucigalpa instead?
Here you can meet even more Honduran girls.
The capital has more than three times as many inhabitants than San Pedro, but it’s also three times less dangerous. Okay, you can still get killed if you walk into the wrong street with a golden watch around your wrist. But it’s not as hardcore as San Pedro.
The video above was filmed in 2010. According to my friend Josh, it was still safe back then. Today he wouldn’t do it again. He begged me to not share the best clubs in Tegucigalpa with you. I promised him to keep them a secret.
I do NOT want you to go out at night.
Meet her in the afternoon, take her back to your apartment, and spend the night with her. If she comes back to your place and doesn’t leave before the sun goes down, she WANTS to spend the night with you.
She wouldn’t leave your apartment if you put a gun to her head.
Meet Honduran Women in Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara is a small town in Honduras.
Usually, I don’t recommend visiting small town because of the limited supply of hot chicks. But both guys I talked to said that Santa Barbara is home to the most beautiful girls in Honduras.
It’s not as safe as Santa Barbara in California, but on a typical day you don’t hear bullets flying. What more do you want?
There’s only one place in this country that I can recommend more…
Meet Honduran Women on the Island of Roatan
Visit Roatan. You’ll thank me later.
This is the best place to meet Honduran women.
You can even chat with girls from San Pedro Sula or Tegucigalpa and invite them on a weekend trip to this island. Actually, that’s the best idea.
What if you want to date local girls?
You can meet a lot of local women (mostly dark-skinned) on this island. The good news is that they speak English. Most of the locals on this island are Caracoles, descendants of European and British-Afro-Caribbean people.
English is their first language, Spanish their second.
I still can’t believe that you can find this paradise right next to a country that bathes in blood.
Really, you have to go there…
Dating a Honduran Woman Means Rescuing Her
Maybe you’re looking for a holiday adventure. Maybe you want more.
What if you want a Honduran bride or girlfriend?
You have my deepest respect.
Making her your girlfriend gives her hope. Marrying her can save her life. I’m not joking. You are dating a woman who was born and raised in the most dangerous place on earth to be a woman. Even beauty queens get killed here.
To say that you are her last hope sounds like a corny line from a bad Hollywood movie with Owen Wilson as the lead actor. But it’s true. You can believe one thing.
She won’t ever leave you because the alternative to the love, safety, and comfort she experiences with you is fear, violence, and death.
Help Your Honduran Girl to Express Her Passion
Sipping a cocktail at a beach bar in Roatan is fine and dandy.
But what do you do next?
I know what you want. You want to see what’s under her red summer dress. You want to touch, kiss, and caress her beautiful dark-skin. She wants that too. But she’s Honduran. She needs to feel the passion.
Give her the chance to express her passion.
Invite her to dance. Maybe on the beach, maybe in your apartment…who cares? As long as you have fun, everything is okay. Dance Salsa, Merengue or Bachata. She knows how to dance. If you don’t, she’ll teach you.
Let her teach you how to take this to the next step.
You’ll Get Fat When Dating a Honduran Woman
“Have you ever tried Tajadas?”
“I can cook Honduran Enchiladas for you.”
“I can also make breakfast with Baledas if you want.”
She sent me one message after another. Each message contained a new dish. I guess this 22-year-old student from Santa Barbara really wants to cook for me. I met her on Latin American Cupid. She seemed like a cool girl.
But I can’t date her because I don’t want to get fat.
Jesus Christ, I can’t believe that a country can have so much violence and such good food at the same time. But yeah, Honduran babes can cook like Gordon Ramsay.
You Have to Survive Bonchinche with Your Honduran Girlfriend’s Family
Her family won’t stop talking.
The urban dictionary translates bonchinche as gossiping, spreading drama, and talkin smack. That hits the nail on the head. And yes, you have to survive it, at least if you want her to be your girlfriend or your bride.
I guess the daily gossip is a way to distract the mind from all the violence, pain and grief. It has to be because Hondurans love bonchinche. As a gringo, you’ll just sit there, stare at the roof, and pretend to give a damn about their stories.
That’s your job. It’ll soon be over.
When will You Finally Marry Your Honduran Girlfriend?
You’ll hear that a lot.
Here’s how it usually works for the women of Honduras:
They meet a guy who’s not a gang member, not on parole, and not a drug dealer. That’s a good start. Now they are dating. Two weeks later they meet the parents, grandparents and the other hundred relatives. Then they are engaged. A couple of weeks later they are married.
Things move fast when you could die every second.
So don’t get paranoid when her grandmother asks you every second day about your wedding day. Take it easy. Smile and make sure that your Honduran girl knows how far you want to take the relationship.
Here’s What Happens if You Marry Your Honduran Bride
What if you want to make her your Honduran bride?
Then you better know what to expect. The wedding traditions are not the same as in Europe or in the USA. You probably won’t marry in a Church. Come on, you are in Honduras. You marry at the beach in Roatan.
Oh, and no Champagne!
You have to drink fermented pineapple juice. They call it chi cha. I hope you don’t have the same taste buds as me because I hate pineapple juice.
You’ll sweat like a monkey in an oven. Your suit will be drenched. But you’ll have a lot of fun with the local Garifuna dancers. Just be careful. Garifuna women can be very straightforward and they love gringos.
You don’t want to cheat on your bride on your wedding day.
What you really want is to meet beautiful Honduran women on Latin American Cupid.
Summed Up Wisdom
Dating in this country can be risky. Don’t laugh it off when I say that you should stay away from San Pedro Sula. I mean, why would you want to go there when you can spend a romantic weekend on the island of Roatan?
Believe me. You want to spend a romantic weekend with one of the sexy Honduran girls you can meet on Latin American Cupid. Maybe you want to make her your girlfriend or wife. Who knows? All I know is that the women in this country are beautiful.
And you are their last hope. Why should she ever leave you if the alternative to love and happiness with you is violence and despair? It doesn’t make any sense. That’s why it’s so important to be a gentleman. She doesn’t want a bad boy because she’s seen enough bad things in her life.

Thank you so much for sharing, Todd!
The girl I met on line is 25 years younger than me. We do have some language barrier issues we’re working through. She lives in El Progresso which means I have to land at San Pedro Sula to get to her city. Any suggestions?
Great article, and very perceptive on many levels. I am a pilot, so I have to routinely fly into San Pedro Sula from Miami where I live, and we overnight there at a nice hotel. It is true that we are advised not to leave the hotel at all because it is so dangerous for a gringo to walk around there, especially at night. The van driver to the hotel told us that the rumors of violence are exaggerated because most of the bloodshed is between rival gang members. However, the mere fact that there are so many gang members around, that by their very nature, can’t be exactly nice people, I’d say it is indeed a very dangerous place to visit or live.
With that said, I met a very pretty girl in the San Pedro Sula airport. She works security, and so true to what you said in this article, it was almost too easy to get her number. She’s at least 20 years younger than me. Probably more like 25 years younger, and she seems not to care in the least. As you mentioned, she is used to the worst kind of men, and even her own father is one of those worst kind of men. The machismo culture down there allows men to basically do anything they want to a woman without fear of punishment.
I have not been out with this girl yet because quite frankly, I’m afraid to start something that I can’t finish, and I don’t even know if I’d ever want to go to her apartment. She has no car, and she rides a bus to and from her apartment. She works long hours.
Anyway, if I do end up meeting her, I’m going to do it by meeting her in Roatan as you suggested. Or I’ll try to see if she can get to my hotel in San Pedro, which is guarded by police 24/7 with AK47’s.
It is a very sad situation in Honduras for women, and everything you said seems to be spot on. Of course I have seen women there that seem very happy, and seem to have a nice family too, but the number of people that are suffering is way more per capita than any other country I have visited as a pilot.
If I were to marry this girl, I have no doubt, I’d be rescuing her to a much better life. However, what she would do once she acclimated to the U.S. and the freedoms we enjoy, as well as handsome young gringos approaching her all the time with her Green Card in hand from marrying me, puts me in a tough spot.
Many of the pilots I know marry girls in Columbia, and then they move to Columbia. But I know, I could never ever move to Honduras, so I’d be forced to take my bride back to the U.S. where I’d stand a good chance of losing her once she got a taste of America.
Thanks for a great article.
Sebastian Harris says
it’s always difficult to say how things will develop once she’s exposed to the Western culture.
Any thoughts on an older gringo dating a younger Honduran woman? Do they tend to be faithful when they get back to the States? I speak fluent Spanish and understand the cultural differences.
Sebastian Harris says
you should 😉
Good article..will give it a try
