Although the Spanish conquered the southern or Pacific portion of Honduras fairly quickly, they were less successful on the northern, or Atlantic side.
In pre-Columbian times, modern Honduras was part of the Mesoamerican cultural area.
When local slave trading stopped at the end of the sixteenth century, African slaves, mostly from Angola, were imported.
After about 1650, very few slaves or other outside workers arrived in Honduras.
Much of the conquest took place in the following two decades, first by groups loyal to Cristóbal de Olid, and then by those loyal to Francisco de Montejo but most particularly by those following Alvarado.
In addition to Spanish resources, the conquerors relied heavily on armed forces from Mexico—Tlaxcalans and Mexica armies of thousands who remained garrisoned in the region.
