You’ve already registered and paid your deposit here
. Now what?
1. Pay your remaining balance
Now that you've registered, you have until exactly
two weeks before your trip to pay your remaining balance. Your remaining balance is payable online
by logging into your account from the homepage. Once logged in you can go under “myTrips” under the “myAccounts” drop-down menu. If you wish to pay by check, please contact us
2. Book your flight
Purchase a flight to Honduras on the EXACT DATES
of your trip. If you come early or leave late, you are responsible for your own safety, transportation and accommodations. We recommend arriving before 3:00pm if possible on the first day of the trip in order to relax for your action-packed week. Click here
for more information on our airport pickup policy.
3. Fill out the Flight Information Form
Give us your flight information by filling out the Flight Information Form
. This is very, very important!
4. Check your passport
Make sure your passport does not expire for at least 6 more months. If it does, you will need to renew it in order to enter Honduras. If you are a US citizen, you do not need a visa.
5. Get your immunization shots
Visit your doctor and get the recommended immunizations. Make sure to check out our health page
6. Make passport copies
Make at least 3 copies of your passport. Give one to your emergency contact, give one to CeCI Staff upon arrival, and carry one with you at all times while in Honduras.
7. Get traveler’s insurance
Get traveler’s insurance if your insurance doesn’t cover you while on your trip. We highly recommend the International Volunteer Card
for travel insurance. This card provides emergency medical insurance while overseas and also allows for a 5% discount on all Continental flights.
8. Register with the Department of State
Enter information about your upcoming trip in the Department of State
website so that they can contact you in the case of an emergency. The address of where you will be staying is:
38 KM, Road to Tela
El Progreso, Yoro, Honduras
9. Call your credit card company
Call your credit card company and inform them that you’ll be leaving the country. They may freeze your account if you try to use your card in Honduras.
10. Bring an ATM card
ATMs will be your main way of getting money in Honduras. We highly recommend ATM cards over bringing cash to exchange so please make sure your ATM card will work for you abroad. Only pristine bills are exchanged in the banks which often proves to be a challenge.
11. Write down emergency contacts
Give your parents/relatives/emergency contacts our direct phone number in case they need to reach us: 011-504-9637-3088 and (703) 445-5497. If you get our answering machine, always
leave a message as our staff will receive an alert if you do.
12. Collect donations
If you're willing to pay the "second bag fee," fill a suitcase full of donations. Click here
for a list of "high-need" items.
13. Get packed up
Use our packing list
to get your suitcase ready! Remember to pack light, but also to be prepared. 5 words: bug spray and sun screen!
