Honduras is a country brimming with clear turquoise waters, sandy beaches, lush jungles, breathtaking mountains covering 81% of the territory, challenging rivers, and fascinating ancient ruins.
Honduras is located in the Central America. It borders the Caribbean Sea on the north coast and the Pacific on the south, Nicaragua in the southeast, Guatemala in the west and El Salvador in the southwest. A mountain system crosses Honduras from east to west. Along the Pacific coast lowlands form a plain. A great part of the lands aren't good for agriculture but in the northern Caribbean lowlands can be found large fertile valleys used for banana plantations.
The climate varies from tropical to cooler, more temperate weather in the mountains. The central and southern regions are relatively hotter and less humid then the northern coast that faces rains throughout the year. Though the offshore breezes temper here the climate, the sun is still very strong. The dry season lasts from November to April and the wet season from May to October.
The population of Honduras is quite numerous reaching 7.1 million citizens. 90% of them are Mestizo, the rest Amerindian, black and white. In spite of the fact the membership in Protestant churches is increasing Honduras is predominantly a Roman Catholic nation.
