List of rivers of Honduras

Rivers in Honduras is a list of the rivers in Honduras, including those it shares with neighbours. The most important river in Honduras is the Ulúa, which flows 400 kilometres (250 mi) to the Caribbean through the economically important Valle de Sula. Numerous other rivers drain the interior highlands and empty north into the Caribbean Sea.

These other rivers are important, not as transportation routes, but because of the broad fertile valleys they have produced. They can also create problems for human inhabitants along their banks, and those who rely on the bridges spanning them, during times of intense rains. An example of those was the Choluteca River, which wreaked havoc in the capital of Tegucigalpa during Hurricane Mitch

La Quebradona is a river located in La Ruidosa Copán
