Welcome to Teen Missions in Honduras!
The Land & People
Honduras is a small Central American nation of only 7 million people, with coastlines along the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean. Is is slightly larger than Tennessee. Its beautiful Mayan ruins attract many tourists but the wealth of the ancient empires is a stark contrast to the present poverty of Honduras.
