The Honduran association of private enterprises (Cohep) has announced the dates of work and public holidays in Honduras on account of the upcoming Semana Santa (Holy Week).

The aforementioned announcement ("el asueto se otorgara desde el miércoles 12 de abril al mediodía y terminará el sábado 15 del mismo mes), is for the Honduran private sector, and we are still expecting a similar, though extended, announcement for the public sector, for which the annual Easter public holidays have often been extended for Honduras' public sector, to last for the entire full Holy Week (2016-03-16, 2015-03-21, 2012-03-14, 2011-04-12, 2010-03-10, 2009-04-03, 2008-03-15, 2007-03-28, and 2006-04-04) as is also often done in neighboring Nicaragua (2016-03-15, 2014-04-07, 2013-03-05, 2012-03-24, 2011-04-08, 2010-03-17, 2009-03-20, and 2008-03-10) and, to a lesser extent, Costa Rica (2017-03-15, 2010-03-11 and 2009-03-19).
