Los Olingos is located in Agua Chiquita, Tela, and Atlántida. It is a small village of approximately 500 inhabitants. It was founded in the 1930s as a result of the booming brought to the north coast of Honduras by the Standard Fruit Company.
Agua Chiquita has an elementary and middle school (first to ninth grade) a medical clinic (staffed by a nurse) and two churches. Fishing, cattle ranching, commerce (small grocery stores called pulperias), cheese houses, African palm plantations and the newly found eco-tourism are the main means of income.
