Honduras is one of the largest and most populated countries in Central America. The country shares a border with Guatemala to the northwest, El Salvador to the south, and Nicaragua to the southeast. Honduras has many beautiful beaches, reefs, islands, and Mayan ruins. Natural parks are another vital part of the country.
Tourists come to Honduras to dive, snorkel, and look at the Mayan ruins. The nation's official language is actually Spanish, and the currency is the lempira (HNL). Banana and coffee are the major exports of Honduras. The economy has reaped some economic benefits from the United States-Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA).
