Physical Geography of Honduras
Major Landforms in Honduras
Honduras has a lot of mountains. They also have a lot of rain forest or tropical areas. Honduras has the biggest rain forest north of the Amazon rain forest. That rain forest takes up 41% of Honduras' land. This rain forest is getting damaged though due to farming and logging. This is bad because that rain forest is home to many, many species of animals. Honduras has no volcanoes, but they do have wetlands. Honduras is also about the size of Tennessee in the United States of America. Honduras gets a lot of hurricanes due to being next to the ocean. The worst hurricane Honduras has got was Hurricane Mitch. Hurricane Mitch left 5,600 dead and thousands injured and lost. The wind has a little bit to do with that. The wind usually flows from East to West which brings wind from the Atlantic Ocean. Honduras is bordered by Nicaragua to the South and El Salvador to the West. One of the biggest rivers in Honduras is called the Rio Ulua. The Rio Ulua is 249 miles long. Most water systems in Honduras are unreliable, so the people have to drink from rivers or ponds.
