Wildlife Holidays in Honduras

Wildlife Holidays in Honduras

Honduras is a republic situated in Central America. It borders the Caribbean Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. It has a tropical climate in the lowlands, while in the mountains it is temperate. In prehistory there was an important Mayan presence around the city of Copan near the Guatemalan border, and in 1502 Columbus landed near Trujillo on his fourth and his final voyage to the New World. Honduras was part of Spain’s empire in the New World from the time of Columbus until granting it independence in 1871.
