Honduras borders the Caribbean Sea on the north coast
and the Pacific Ocean on the south through the Gulf of Fonseca. The
climate varies from tropical in the lowlands to temperate in the mountains.
The central and southern regions are relatively hotter and less humid
than the northern coast.
The Honduran territory consists mainly of mountains
(~81%), but there are narrow plains along the coasts, a large undeveloped
lowland jungle La Mosquitia region in the northeast, and the heavily
populated lowland San Pedro Sula valley in the northwest. In La Mosquitia
lies the UNESCO-world heritage site Río Plátano Biosphere
Reserve, with the Coco River which divides the country from Nicaragua.
Natural resources include timber, gold, silver, copper,
lead, zinc, iron ore, antimony, coal, fish, shrimp, and hydropower.
The Islas de la Bahía and the Swan Islands
are part of Honduras. Misteriosa Bank and Rosario Bank, 130 to 150
km north of the Swan Islands, falls within the EEZ of Honduras.
