I have lived in Central America for the last eight years and your advice is right on target. The only thing I could add would be that when dealing with the police always ask for a boleto (ticket) or factura (receipt) when they ask you for money. In Honduras there are set amounts for certain traffic violations but the police can be enterprising at times and try to charge you much more than the actual amount.

This thread should be made a sticky.
