Spanish is the principal language and is spoken throughout the country, although English (spoken with a broad Caribbean accent) is the language of choice in the Bay Islands. The remaining Indian tribes have their own distinct languages. Roman Catholicism is the predominant religion, but there are also many other Christian sects and denominations, including Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, Baptists, Pentecostals, Assemblies of God, Evangelicals and so on. The indigenous tribes have their own religions, often existing alongside Christianity and incorporating elements of African and Indian animism and ancestor worship. Honduran crafts include wood carving (notably wooden instruments), basketry, embroidery and textile arts, leathercraft and ceramics. The country's cuisine is based around beans, rice, tortillas, fried bananas, meat, potatoes, cream and cheese.

Tales of Honduras From a Frequent Visitor
A bit of Honduras culture, this is a completely unedited story sent to me by a friend. I found it lively and fascinating, with maybe a little O.Henry flavor. Hope you do, too. Read it if you dare! J. McMillin, ROL Part One All of this story I am relaying as I saw it and is based on what I saw and heard. The opinions expressed in this story are of the people in this story. Do not flame me for any parts you do not agree with. Now looking around town I was told basically every business was for sale. One common thread was that the people want an exorbitant price and would come down on the price. Now I was really interested in the ex-pat bar. Bob had told me that it was put on the market for fifty thousand American. Well there were no takers and the price steadily dropped until it got to eight thousand. At this point he decided not to sell and stick it out. Basically the thinking is that in two years La Ceiba would be back. Now I was told that Gonzales had gotten out of jail. The Gonzales who was sorta partner with Dieter and was in jail on drug changes in the USA. He is selling the complete flamingo block. The hotel, liquor store, conference room, Internet kiosk and what's left of Dieters bar. He will hand over the keys to everything to you (all inventories included) for the low price of 800K American. Bob and me talked about it. We were thinking that everything should be connected so you wouldn't have to leave the hotel complex. The second floor would have to be finished and the conference room should be turned into a casino. It would cost a few dollars to turn it around. That asking price was just a little too much. Of course the subject of Dieter came up. One of the biggest mistakes he made was going into partnership with Gonzales. The woman who was with Dieter when he was murdered was forced back onto the streets as a prostitute. She lived in the back of Bob's bar for a week. She finally got an apartment and then one-day she disappeared and left all her clothing behind. It was said this was totally out of character. When women moves on, at least they take their clothing. The scuttlebutt was that she too was murdered and buried in an unmarked grave. Dead men (or women) tell no tales.

    12. Honduras -- Culture Overview
    Concise overview of the land and its culture.
    Honduras - Culture Overview
    The area that is now Honduras was an important center of Mayan civilization during the classic period before A.D. 900. Subsequently, the area was settled by Spaniards but remained on the fringes of the Spanish Empire. Even today Honduras is a nation of sparse population and rugged terrain. People living in small villages have had little contact with others, while ideas about shared traditions have been more important and common to the cities. Yet recent political conflicts in Central America have helped to encourage a sense of Honduran nationalism, and diverse ethnic groups are struggling to find a place for themselves in the nation.
    These ethnic groups include the Chorti, descendants of the classic Mayans; the Lenca, the largest cultural group, settled mostly in the west; the Tolupanes, Tawahka, Pech and Miskito inhabitants of the tropical forests of the eastern lowlands; the Garifuna of the Atlantic coast, descendants of African and Carib peoples; and the mestizo descendants of Europeans. Nearly all of these people consider themselves Roman Catholic and speak the country's official language, Spanish, but some groups preserve vestiges of older ways, and there are important differences between them.
    Outside the cities the audience for national culture is dispersed, but Hondurans admire artists who represent local subjects. People take special pride in Carlos Garay, who painted Honduran landscapes after graduating from the National School of Fine Arts. Although there are many painters who have received training in Europe, such self-taught artists as Jose Antonio Velazquez are more popular locally. Velazquez focused on paintings of village life in a way that is representational without being photographic. Though Velazquez died in 1983, his son and others carry on in his tradition. The Honduran writers who are best known are those who work in more than one medium. Thus, Rafael Heliodoro Valles, a historian, poet, and essayist, along with Clementina Suarez, a poet, publisher, and magazine editor, have become familiar figures to a wide range of Hondurans.

    Brief information of geography, economy, government, and culture.
    April 8, 2003 3:13 PM Geography and Climate
    Honduras is the second largest of the Central American Republics, with an area 112,088 square kilometers (44,500 square miles). It is roughly comparable to the state of Ohio, bordered on the northwest by Guatemala, on the southwest by El Salvador, and on the southeast by Nicaragua. Its Pacific coastline consists of a 77 mile arc along the Gulf of Fonseca in the south. The Caribbean Sea coastline of 400 miles contains several excellent ports and makes the North Coast the commercial hub of Honduras. Several small offshore islands, of which the Bay Islands are the best known, are also part of the national territory.
    It is a mountainous country, with ranges from 3,000 to 9,000 feet in altitude covering 80 percent of the nation. Though fertile valleys and plateaus lie between the mountains and in the coastal areas, it is estimated that only 17 percent of the landmass is suitable for agricultural development. About 45 percent of the land is covered with forest.
    The prevailing climate pattern is characterized by a wet season from May through October and a dry season from November to April. Climactic variations are more pronounced in the coastal lowlands, particularly in the North Coast, where major hurricanes as well as severe floods and droughts have been experienced in recent years. Temperate conditions prevail in the higher elevations.

    Country Info Honduras Introduction Honduras General Data Honduras Maps Honduras Culture ... Honduras Time and Date Honduras Culture Back to Top The art and architecture of the pre-Columbian and Spanish colonial periods are strongly evident in Honduran culture. Of special interest is the great Mayan city of Copán, which represents the height of the Mayan Classic period. Discovered in the early 16th century, Copán was partly excavated and restored in 1839. Spanish architecture reflects Moorish, Gothic, and, especially, Baroque styles. Modern Honduran culture has not produced many strong representatives of its art, the country's widespread poverty being a major impediment. Most contemporary artists reflect their colonial heritage, and the pre-Columbian heritage is seen mainly in Indian crafts. Social themes may also be reflected in paintings and literary works, the latter generally represented by poetry and short fiction. The interaction of both Native American and Spanish strains in Honduran cultural history is clearly visible in the architecture. Many colonial buildings show strong Native American influences combined with baroque, Renaissance, and Moorish styles imported by the Spanish. The family is central to Honduran daily life and society, and strong emphasis is placed on family loyalty. Not only do family ties form a vital part of social identity, but they provide assistance in business and in finding one's path through government bureaucracy and red tape. Particularly close, trusted friends are often brought into family circles by being designated compadres (“godparents”), an honour (and a mark of responsibility) that is often conferred at marriages and baptisms. In addition to religious marriages, civil ceremonies are common, as are free unions. Many couples eventually have a religious ceremony, but typically only after their funds allow for a grand wedding celebration.

    Honduras Honduras was the original banana republic and is still one of the least developed and industrialized countries in Central America. Despite its turbulent political history, the poor cousin of the region has barely registered on the Western radar, apart from its short role in the 1980s as a breeding ground for US covert operations. The slow pace, natural beauty and low-profile tourism make it particularly appealing to travelers (well-armed with insect repellent) who enjoy getting off the beaten track. However, the country was devastated by one of the strongest hurricanes of the 20th century - Hurricane Mitch in October 1998. Thanks to international relief efforts, much of the infrastructure has now been repaired and tourism has returned to pre-Mitch levels.
