Land and Resources
Except for two coastal strips, one extending about 640 km (about 400 mi) along the Caribbean Sea and the other 64 km (about 40 mi) on the Pacific Ocean, Honduras is a plateau, consisting of broad, fertile plains broken by deep valleys, and traversed by mountain ranges in a northwestern to southwestern direction. The mountains, which are volcanic in origin, rise to maximum elevations of more than 2800 m (more than 9186 ft). Most of the country's rivers drain to the Atlantic Ocean. Navigable Atlantic rivers include the UlÃºa, which drains approximately one-third of the country, and the Coco. Forests, covering about 31 percent of the land, yield valuable hardwoods and softwoods. Fertile pasturelands provide the basis for increasingly productive dairy farming and livestock raising. Valuable mineral deposits, such as lead and zinc, are also present.
The climate of Honduras is tropical, but is tempered by the
higher elevations of the interior. The mean annual temperature in the
interior is about 21.1Â° C (about 70Â° F). The low-lying coastal regions,
however, are warmer, and the humidity is oppressive; the mean annual
temperature here averages 26.7Â° C (80Â° F). The dry season prevails from
November to May; the average annual rainfall ranges from 1016 mm (40 in) in
some mountain valleys to 2540 mm (100 in) along the northern coast.
