From the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific

Honduras, officially the Republic of Honduras (Spanish: República de Honduras), is a republic in Central America. It was at times referred to as Spanish Honduras to differentiate it from British Honduras, which became the modern-day state of Belize. Honduras is bordered to the west by Guatemala, to the southwest by El Salvador, to the southeast by Nicaragua, to the south by the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Fonseca, and to the north by the Gulf of Honduras, a large inlet of the Caribbean Sea.

Honduras was home to several important Mesoamerican cultures, most notably the Maya, prior to being conquered by Spain in the sixteenth century. The Spanish introduced Roman Catholicism and the now predominant Spanish language, along with numerous customs that have blended with the indigenous culture.

The nation became independent in 1821 and has since been a republic, although it has consistently endured much social strife and political instability, remaining one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. The locals are justifiably proud of their coffee; they punch well above their weight when it comes to quality beans. In 2011, Honduras became Central America’s biggest coffee producer and in 2012 it ranked seventh in the world, being the second-biggest exporter of high-quality Arabica beans on the planet, competing abtly with heavyweights such as Colombia and Brazil. The industry even helped the Honduran government stave off bankruptcy in the years after a political coup in 2009. The combination of record crops, high international prices and effective marketing boosted the sector, generated employment and earned hard currency for the nation.
