This is a picture of the country Honduras. It is in the north-central part of Central America, has a Caribbean as well as a pacific coastline. It's the second largest in Central America.
Honduras was inhabited by the Maya. Columbus explored the country in 1502. In 1821 Honduras declared its independence from Spain to form a federation of Central American states but, later in 1838 they left the federation and became independent.
El Salvador invaded Honduras after Honduran landowners deported several thousand Salvadorans in 1969. Five thousand people died in what is called "the football war" because it broke out during a soccer game between two countries.
About 90% of the population is mestizo which means a person of racially mixed ancestry, especially, in Latin America, of mixed American Indian and European.
