The Central American nation of Honduras has many natural resources, including minerals, coffee, and sugar cane. Before the Spanish invasion in the sixteenth century, the country was home to important Mesoamerican cultures, particularly the Maya. The city of Tegucigalpa, which is located in a valley and surrounded by mountains, is the capital of Honduras. With 1,157,509 residents, it is the country's most populous city.

Notably, Tegucigalpa shares its capital city status with its sister city Comayagüela, forming the Central District to serve as the national capital – their joint status is even written into the Constitution of Honduras. Due to the mountainous terrain surrounding the city, its international airport, Toncontín, is known for its very short runway which requires some difficult manoeuvres by pilots to avoid the mountains.

With 1,445,598 residents in its metropolitan area, the northwest city of San Pedro Sula is the second-largest in the country, and is a key industrial center of Honduras. The city is famous for its banana production, but in recent years problems with organised crime have plagued the city and, until 2016, San Pedro Sula was known as the "murder capital of the world".
