Honduras is the second biggest and second most populous country in Central America. It has colonial villages Gracias, Comayagua, ancient Maya ruins Copan, natural parks Moskitia, and a Pacific and Caribbean coastline and the Bay Islands, with great beaches and coral reefs where snorkelling and diving are exceptional by any standard.

The country is bordered by Guatemala to the northwest, El Salvador to the south and Nicaragua to the southeast and has one of the worlds highest murder rates due mostly to rampant gangs.
