West Bay, Roatan

When translated into English, the word "Honduras" means, "Depths." The story is that on one of his voyages, Christopher Columbus was caught in a massive storm just north of what would be called Honduras. The waves were so large that he attributed them to depth in the water. Just as soon as Columbus sailed past the storm, he wrote: "Thank God that we've left these depths." or in Spanish:

"Gracias a Dios que hemos salidos de estas Honduras."

All this to say that Honduras has long been known for its depths. Fast forward to the modern era, and you'll find freedivers pushing the human limits into deeper and greater deptsh than ever before.
