    Airfare to San Pedro Sula is currently $253 and that leaving friday morning and returning sunday. I'm thinking about doing this trip but I worry it will be a little more hostile than Costa Rica.

    Anyone else interested in going or thinking about it? I would have to make it as quick a trip as possible due to lack of vacation days at work.

    What's the general consensus?

    I've been thinking of going, but the coup de tat does make one wonder a bit. I guess travel insurance would be a good idea. My plan was to combine the trip with a one week Spanish immersion program in Copa de Ruinas.

    x2 !!

    I also agree to this, luckily its a little ways in the future, so it might blow over by then. I'll be trying to stay informed about the situation and will try to keep this post alive and confirm for sure yes or no in a month or two.

    Those airfares may be even lower now.

    is it correct to assume that this match will be played in San Pedro Sula not Tegucigalpa?

    I think so. It's the home of the national team, its the second largest stadium in Central America, and it's where Honduras has played previous qualifiers.

    It's also waaaay cheaper to fly into!

    Anyone ever been there knows nice places to stay? I'm researching now, I'll post what I find.

    Definitely all US fans should look to stay in the same spot so we can travel together to and from the game.

    I booked for $125 a night. Not the cheapest hotel you will find in Honduras, but Im spoiled and like some creature comforts.

    That might be my problem. I was looking at a one-night stay only since I was planning to arrive the week before the game. I'm still pondering that given the situation there. Today's news sounds better than yesterday's.

    Unfortunately, I have taken a new assignment at work that will not allow me to get away this fall. So, I'm out.

    Who's going to San Pedro Sula?

    I looked at the flights out of Philadelphia and they were definitely reasonable. Is anyone heading down?

    The flights from LAX are ridiculous, like $680.00 r/t vs $388.00 r/t from Philly according to sidestep.com
