  Info about Honduras
 

Christopher Columbus arrived to the continent in Trujillo (Colon) in 1502. He called for deep Honduras coast.

The Spanish Hernan Cortes arrived in 1524. The Colonial Period of the conquest of Honduras began in 1524, when Hernan Cortes, conqueror of Mexico, sent Olid to initiate the subjugation of the Hondurans indigenous, most of Lencas, Jicaques, Payas and Arawacos.

The conquest was also marked by the struggles between the various Spanish power centers located in Mexico, Panama and Santo Domingo. In any case, Honduras was a province dependent viceroyalty of New Spain.

Cortes arrived in 1525 to formally occupy the territory, but the discovery of gold in Honduras became a center of intrigue and conflict for several years. Alonso de Cáceres founded the city of Comayagua in 1537 and won the heroic resistance of the Indian leader Lempira.

The location of Cortes in Guatemala, Pedro de Alvarado, defeated all his opponents in 1539. That year, Honduras was incorporated into the Captaincy General of Guatemala.

Comayagua was the capital during most of the colonial period, although the mining boom around Thanksgiving this population gave such importance that in 1543 became the capital of the Audiencia de los Confines, created by Charles I and covering throughout Central America.

However, gold and silver deposits were more limited than previously thought and Honduras lost its initial importance, as the capital of the Audiencia was restored in Guatemala. Honduras was ruled by this Court until 1552 and then fell under the Captaincy General of Guatemala

Honduras has made tourism their number one priority, and the industry has not only benefited the country by creating new jobs and bringing in foreign currency, but also by strengthening national identity, increasing development, and giving Hondurans a higher standard of living. Honduras is privileged to have an extraordinary natural and cultural heritage: the Bay Islands are surrounded by the world's second largest coral reef and is one the popular diving areas in the world. Copan is considered the Athens of the ancient Mayan civilization and there are beaches of singular beauty, exuberant scenery, colonial towns and living cultures throughout the country. Honduras offers enormous tourism potential, just waiting to be discovered for tourist and entrepreneurs alike. By developing competitive tourism destinations that have high aggregated value, effectively promoting them on foreign markets, strengthening security with the creation of a tourism police force, and encouraging investment in the sector with a variety of incentives the Honduran government has a great plan of action for tourism to succeed and all of these efforts will be carried out within the framework of a long-term national strategy in coordination with both the public and private sectors

Klima



Honduras has both tropical and sub-tropical climates and since it's located between two oceans, borders the Caribbean sea, contains vast mountainous regions, and large forest regions, the climate varies greatly throughout the north, south, and central regions of the country. In the center of the country, climates are more predictable with Summer (the dry season) extending roughly from December to May and the Winter (rainy season) extending from June to November. In the area where Villas Paraiso Escondido and Villas Boreales 
are located, the dry season normally runs roughly from the mid December to the mid September and the rainy season usually runs from the mid September to the mid December but could last as
