I have been reading your blog,off and on for years. Could you tell me how much money i would need to live, not so good not so bad in La Ceiba. I would not have to pay rent since i will live with my family in B. La Isla. I am 73 years old and get US Social Security. To get residency does Honduras have special favorable requirements fo me because my daughter is a Honduran citizen with US Green Card. I hope to hear from you. Thank you very much Marq

Marq, I'm so sorry that I didn't see your message before. I think this is not a place for conversing! Please join our Honduras Living discussion group to ask your questions. You can find it here:

Hola Gringa! I love your honesty and coverage of major issues here in Honduras. Keep having those difficult discussions, it can only help improve the situation here to have more citizens and residents involved in those debates! AWalk on the Run

Hi Gringa, don't know if you remember me, but we have spoken before. I used to live over in Santo Tomas de Castilla in Guatemala, and would visit Ceiba and different places. Anyway fast forward to now and I'm retiring this june from teaching. I intend to try living in some different places to see what might be a good fit. I'll get about 1600 dollars a month, do you think I can live decently around Ceiba or its environs on that. I know it's more than many Catrachos make, but I have to ask an American expat. I am alone, can live fairly humbly, a small apartment with kitchenette is fine, thanks, I just wanted to run this by you, Pete
