What will we eat?
All of your meals while in Honduras will be provided by the Jungle Hospital. We will eat local foods and get a taste of the Honduran culture and customary foods they eat. It’s tough to accommodate some food allergies in Honduras. If you have food allergies, please notify us in advance.

Though not drastically different, the customary foods of the jungle do differ slightly from those in the city. The meals that will be prepared for you at the Jungle Hospital are homemade and unique in that they add an American twist to customary Honduran food.

What should I bring?
Each trip is different and you’ll be given a packing list for this specific trip at the mission trip info meeting before our departure. You will bring all the basic necessities for hygiene and living. Attire is mainly pants, jeans, casual dresses, t-shirts, tennis shoes, and sandals. The climate is very tropical, but allows for many different types of clothing to be comfortable.

Do I need vaccines?
The question of vaccinations is left to the discretion of the team member and their physician. The CDC does have recommendations for vaccinations if traveling to Honduras. Please visit their website for those specifics.
