Honduras

Once the home of the Maya, the region borders the Caribbean in the north and the Pacific in the south. In the densely populated lowlands of the northwest is San Pedro Sula. On the northeast coast is the great lowland jungle of Mosquitia with the UNESCO-protected biosphere reserve of Río Plátano.

El Porvenir, Atlántida

This rural province on the Caribbean coast is ideal for the local cultivation of sugar cane, bananas, pineapples, maize and rice. Tourists love the white sandy beaches and the nearby national park of Pico Bonito.

Climate

At the higher altitudes in the interior, the tropical climate is more temperate. In the hot, humid Caribbean lowlands, pineapples and bananas grow at an average annual temperature of around 26°C or 78°F. On the Caribbean coast it rains from May to October, but humidity remains high around the year. Weather
