List of rivers of Honduras

Rivers in Honduras is a list of the rivers in Honduras, including those it shares with neighbours. Among the most important river in Honduras is the Ulúa,[1] which flows 400 kilometres (250 mi) through the economically important Valle de Sula. Numerous other rivers drain the interior highlands and empty north into the Caribbean Sea. The Pacific Ocean coast also receives other important rivers such as the Choluteca River, which flows through the capital, Tegucigalpa, where it wreaked havoc during the 1998 Hurricane Mitch. La Quebradona is a river located in La Ruidosa, Copán. La Comisión Permanente de Contingencias is the body which gives out alerts when rivers are in danger of overflowing.[2]

This list is arranged by drainage basin, from east to west, with respective tributaries indented under each larger stream's name.
