Anyone know what species of plants I can get in the hobby that occur in central Honduras around El paraiso?

Isla Taboga Panama via Milwaukee
In my travels throughout Central America, (Mexico to Panama and in between) the most common endemic submerged and semi aquatic plants I've seen include Hydrocotyl, Vallisneria, Arium Sword Plants (many bog and semi aquatic), Sagiterria and Nymphea waterlilies.
Floaters like Salvinia, water lettuce and water Hyacinth are also everywhere.
The various species and variants differ from country to country, and I admit I can't tell one from the other, but many genera are common from the southern US to Argentina.
And many Asian species have invaded and taken over, here in Panama.
