Hello @Blu3, and welcome to the forum. The answer to your questions is YES and NO.

Yes, if and only if, it is to a country outside the Central American countries. So, you could go to Mexico, for example, as it would be considered an proper exit out of Honduras…but you could not go to Nicaragua or Guatemala.

@Blu3 Look into Belize…it may qualify as an official exist and it makes for an excellent destination.

Yes you can stay for 6 months on a 90 day visa. You will be required to pay a fee upon leaving in 6 months. The fees are posted at the immigration office and its not too steep but must be paid in lempiras. Now, if you want to leave and re-enter as you suggest you must be at least 3 countries away to do that and Belize is a popular spot for such a trip as Cayman Airways flies direct to there.

Yes, Belize is a good choice. Tropic Air has daily flights. About $180 a ticket.
You are required to spend 3 days out of the country.
Compared to the fines for over staying, it’s an expensive option. :-).
