In Central America lies the country of Honduras. Its borders are Guatemala (west), Nicaragua (southeast), El Salvador (southwest), the Gulf of Fonseca (south), and the Gulf of Honduras (north). As a small entryway in the Caribbean Sea, it provided a home to the Mayans and other prominent Meso-American cultures in the 16th century.
Of all the many Central American countries, Honduras is the second-largest. With its scenic parks, white-sand beaches, incredible biodiversity, turquoise waters, diving spots, and fantastic mountain ranges, the way of life in the country is laid back. And beyond its natural beauty, it's famous for the numerous hostels run by passionate travelers.
