Honduras is a country in Central America bordered by Guatemala to the west, El Salvador to the southwest, Nicaragua to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the south, and the Gulf of Honduras to the north. The Islas de la Bahia and the Swan Islands are part of Honduras. The territory is mainly mountainous with a few narrow plains along the coast and a large undeveloped jungle in the northeast.
Honduras has five registered political parties. The country has been ruled by PNH and PLH for decades, which are distinct entities with their own dedicated band of supporters. They often only serve the interests of their own members who receive jobs when their party gains power and loses them again when the other party is elected.
Honduras culture is full of folklore, a good example is the famous Lluvia de Peces (Fish Rain). The most popular events in Honduras are: Honduras Independence Day on September 15th and Children's Day on September 10th. Both events include huge celebrations and elaborate decorations. Soccer is the most popular sport in Honduras played by people of all ages.
