The second largest of the Central American countries, Honduras is bounded on the north by the Caribbean Sea, on the east and south by Nicaragua, on the southwest by El Salvador and the Pacific Ocean, and on the west by Guatemala. Honduras has rich and distinct ecosystems; lush jungles, mountains, rivers, clear turquoise waters and pristine beaches.
The economy is agricultural-based, with bananas and coffee as the most important exports. Political stability in the last 25 years has allowed the Honduran economy to diversify into other areas such as tourism, apparel and shrimp farming.
However, Honduras still remains one of the poorest nations in the Western Hemisphere. With a population of 9.5 million people, nearly 50 percent of Hondurans live in poverty, with a majority of the poverty reserved for the more rural areas.
