Categories: Central America | Latin America

Honduras is one of the 20 Latin American nations. Officially the Republic of Honduras (Spanish: República de Honduras), it is a republic in Central America. It was at times referred to as Spanish Honduras to differentiate it from British Honduras, which later became the modern-day state of Belize. The country 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 spans an area of about 112,492 km² and has a population exceeding 8 million. Its northern portions are part of the Western Caribbean Zone, as reflected in the area's demographics and culture. Honduras is known for its rich natural resources, including various minerals, coffee, tropical fruit, and sugar cane, as well as for its growing textile industry, which serves the international market.
