Once part of Spain's vast empire in the New World, Honduras became an independent nation in 1821.

After two and a half decades of mostly military rule, a freely elected civilian government came to power in 1982.

During the 1980s, Honduras proved a haven for anti-Sandinista contras fighting the Marxist Nicaraguan Government and an ally to Salvadoran Government forces fighting leftist guerrillas.
