Honduras

The Republic of Honduras, formerly known as Spanish Honduras, is a country in Central America, bordered to the north by the Gulf of Honduras and the Caribbean Sea, to the southeast by Nicaragua, to the south by the Pacific Ocean (at the Golf of Fonseca), to the southwest by El Salvador and to the west by Guatemala.

Honduras is the original banana republic, but travel there is easy, enjoyable and inexpensive. The slow pace, natural beauty and low-profile tourism make it particularly appealing to travellers (well-armed with insect repellent) who enjoy getting off the beaten track.
