Honduras

 

The Central American country of Honduras occupies the northern portion of the isthmus. To the south, it shares a border with Nicaragua, to the west with Guatemala, and to the south-west, with El Salvador. The Caribbean Sea surrounds the country’s north and east coasts, where the state’s remote islands can be found. The Pacific Ocean washes ashore on the country’s south-western beaches, which are black and sandy.
Mountains cover almost the entire surface area of the country. The Sierra de las Minas is the highest peak in the area (2870 m). Along the coast, there are plains with banana plantations. It is on the World Heritage List of UNESCO that the tropical jungle of north-eastern Honduras is preserved.

The Ula River is the country’s longest river by a considerable distance (358 km). Lake Yojoa is the largest of the three lakes.

The country’s territory is divided into 18 departments and one central district, with each department having its own administrative headquarters. These include Tegucigalpa, the country’s capital, and Comayag├╝ela, a suburb of Tegucigalpa.
