When I landed at San Pedro Sula International Airport, I took a taxi to my hotel. I was talking to the taxi driver and asked if San Pedro Sula was really dangerous. He explained to me that the city is not dangerous during the day, but it is at night. He advised me that it was perfectly fine to walk all around the city during the day time.

Here is a video of my airport taxi to the hotel:
This is what San Pedro Sula looks like during the day. I would definitely not advise anyone to walk during the night time in these streets or alleyways.
I saw a lot of cops on foot and in vehicle patrols during the day time as well.
I took another taxi where I spoke with the driver about the danger situation in San Pedro Sula. He advised me that it was not dangerous at all during the day time, but that some parts are dangerous. I’m assuming that’s outside “The Ring” road.
I did take a brief walk outside during the night time from the City Mall to my hotel since it was really close. It was on a major street with lots of people walking so I didn’t feel like it was dangerous and I just wanted to see what it was like to walk out during the night time.
I did find San Pedro Sula pretty safe to walk around within “The Ring” road. I walked everywhere in the daytime during my three days in the city and wasn’t threatened or harassed at all. I found taxis pretty safe as well and Honduran people are friendly. A word of advice: Don’t go out at night time after 6pm. If you do, take a taxi.
