Where is Honduras?

Well, this is the question that gave birth to this site. Once you know a little bit about Honduras, it´s a question with a very easy answer. Honduras is a country located in Central America, in the very middle of the American Continent. As you may know, or in case you don´t, Central America is the narrow piece of land connecting North America with South America. There are several countries in Central America and Honduras is one of them.

Countries in Central America are the following: Guatemala, Belize, HONDURAS, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.

If you take a look at the map you will notice that Honduras is in the very middle of Central America as we said before, and considering that Central America is in the middle of the American Continent, we could say that Honduras is the very heart of the whole American Continent, how about that?

As you may notice, Honduras borders with Guatemala to the West, El Salvador to the South and Nicaragua to the South-West. There is no direct land border with Belize, however both countries are very near and they have a maritime border. As for Costa Rica and Panama, Honduras doesn´t have any direct borders with them.

You also may notice on this map that Honduras is very near to the Gulf Coast of USA. It's only 2 hours air trip flying eather from Miami or Houston. There are direct and daily flights from those cities to Honduras, so it's very easy and quick to get in and out of Honduras at anytime. Some of the most known US airlines with direct flights to Honduras are American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines.

Many people don´t know that there are four (4) International Airports in Honduras in the following cities: Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, La Ceiba, Roatan. That is not the general situation with all other Central American countries, most of them only have 1 or 2 international airports.

We will be talking about some other ways to get in and out of Honduras in several other posts.

As you see, the answer to the question "Where is Honduras?" it´s very easy, I'm sure if you have read this post you will never forget it. However, many people all over the world don´t know about this very simple fact regarding the exact location of Honduras. Most people may know that Honduras is in America, a few others know that it is in Central America, some others don´t really know where Central America is. Several years ago I made a trip to Rio de Janeiro in Brasil, and the taxi driver asked me where I was from. When I told him I was from Honduras, he asked: "...where in Brasil is Honduras?". Can you imagine that??!!

As a proud Honduran person I feel committed to let people know about how wonderful Honduras is, and I will be glad to share as much information as I can about Honduras in general through this website.
