Honduras climate overview
The colonial past of this Central American country is not evident today. Once the quintessential 'banana republic', Honduras is today among the poorest countries in the western hemisphere with an ailing economy that has been devastated from time to time by hurricanes and floods. The country relies significantly on its exports of coffee, bananas, cotton, maize, and timber.
Accounting for three-quarters of Honduras is a rugged mountainous interior, covered mainly by dwindling mountain pine forest. The most spectacular scenery is preserved in the Parque Nacional Celaque on the borders with El Salvador where stunning waterfalls and sheer cliffs are nestled in dense cloud-forest.
The tropical interior has a wet summer season running from April to October. A typical summer day is warm and fairly cloudy with heavy showers by late afternoon. November to March is relatively dry and much sunnier with warm or comfortable daytime temperatures.
The lowland coastal strip in the north is made up of many fertile river valleys, which flow into the Caribbean Sea. This area is the most heavily cultivated in the country, supporting extensive plantations. While the peak rainy season along the coast is from September to January, showers are possible throughout the year with hot summer temperatures and warm winters.
The far northeast of the country is fairly inaccessible resulting in unspoilt lowland wilderness with many rivers and lagoons. So remote is the area that it is still home to indigenous Indian tribes.
A minute Pacific coastline exists in the far southwest which is another lowland river plain. It remains largely dry from November to March but the heavy summer rains support a mixture of forest and plantations.
