Apicultural Development in Central America and Panama: Some Historic and Economic Considerations

It is believed that honeybees were first introduced into Central America in Costa Rica, at an unknown date that must have been before the 1830s, when honeybees were introduced to Guatemala from Costa Rica. About 25 years later, honey bees were reported in the mountainous districts of Honduras. The recency of this introduction is noteworthy, since the Spanish had been in Central America for nearly 300 years previously, but the Yucatan Peninsula, for instance, had no honeybees until near the beginning of the 20th century.
