Honduras has a tropical weather the hole year, However you could experiment with different temperatures between some departments.

That was only a short article about Honduras but there is even more, you should.
I know the second part of the contest is talk about a country which you want visit some day, but in this case I will omitted, I have already traveled the world and sure there is amazing places, but no one like this.
Honduras is a third-world country and one of the most low score in PIB (64th) and a medium human growth. However their people is humble and respectful, I will not say their is not dangerous places, but even Honduran people avoid visit it at least they not have another place to live. So do not have fear, You will just fall in love once meet the Heart of America.
