Coffee and cigars
Honduras is famous for its tasty coffee and handmade cigars from the western part of the country.
In the late 16th century, when Tegucigalpa was founded by Spanish settlers on the site of an earlier native settlement, its full name was Real Villa de San Miguel de Tegucigalpa de Heredia. Today, locals often shorten Tegucigalpa to 'Tegus.'
Until the 19th century, Tegucigalpa was the country's most important center for the mining of silver and gold. That's the main reason it became the Honduran capital in 1880. The name, in Nahuatl, a native language, means 'silver mountain.'

It is not usual to find a national park in the middle of a capital city, but in Tegucigalpa you can see the La Tigra National Park just by looking towards the Cristo del Picacho up on a hill.
