Map of Honduras

Humidity is high in the tropics, and there's plenty of rainfall in the north.

Tegucigalpa

The capital of Honduras is on the Choluteca River, in the south central part of the country.

Established in the late 16th century, Tegucigalpa alternated with Comayagua as the capital of Honduras from the 1820s to 1880.

In the late 1930s it was merged with the town of Comayag�ela, across the Choluteca River, to form the Central District.

Tegucigalpa is one of the few capitals in the world without a railway.

American School of Tegucigalpa:
The American School's motto 'Excellence For All' represents the synergy of a college preparatory curriculum, a multi-lingual, multi-cultural student body, a talented, and dedicated multi-national faculty, and a supportive parent community.

Tegucigalpa Tips:
Getting around Tegucigalpa can be a confusing experience. Despite the colonial history of the city, it does not have the typical Spanish layout of square streets around the Central Park. This is mostly due to the fact that terrain around the city did not allow this.

Ecotourism in Honduras

It's a little known fact that Honduras is home to more intact rainforest, cloud forest and pine forest than it’s more well-known and visited neighbours, Guatemala and Costa Rica.

With more than 100 protected areas in Honduras these national parks, biosphere and wildlife reserves offer an unforgettable experience and the perfect environment for nature lovers.

The vast range of habitats is home to some 225 mammal species. Monkeys, jaguars, ocelots, pumas, sloths, armadillos, ant-eaters, deer, and bats are only a small sample of the diversity of mammals that inhabit Honduras.

Amphibian and reptile species are also found in Honduras, and include such species as the barba amarillo, coral snake, iguana, caiman, crocodiles and hawksbill and leatherback turtles.

It's hard to name all the beautiful and impressive birds to be found in Honduras, as there are far too many. Macaws, toucans, quetzals, motmots, parrots, tanagers, orioles, herons, ibis, terns and kingfishers are all found as are many other common and rare species.

La Ceiba

With its proximity to the Pico Bonito National Park, the Cangrejal River, the Cuero and Salado Wildlife Refuge, the Cayos Cochinos Marine Reserve and the Bay Islands (Roatan, Utila and Guanaja) its no wonder La Ceiba has been officially proclaimed the Eco-Tourism Capital of Honduras.

La ceiba is also known as the 'Friendliest City in Honduras' and the 'Entertainment Capital of Honduras'.
