Communist Party of Honduras (in Spanish: Partido Comunista de Honduras) is a communist party in Honduras. PCH was founded on October 10, 1954 by Ramos Dionisio Bejarano[1] and Rigoberto Padilla Rush.[2] It had its roots in the Honduran Revolutionary Democratic Party.

PCH was claimed by the government to be an illegal party. It developed a strong presence in the trade union movement, for example amongst banana plantations. In the mid-1960s, the U.S. State Department estimated the party membership to be approximately 2400.[3]

In 1990, PCH was dissolved, and merged into Patriotic Renovation Party.

The party was reactivated during the celebration of its fifth Congress in 2011.[4]
