Tegucigalpa and the sparsely populated Mosquito coast

The capital, Tegucigalpa, known locally as Tegús, has a pleasant climate because of its altitude of 3,000 feet, and is the gateway to the Pacific coast. The eastern extreme of the country is known as Moskitia, or the Mosquito coast (the name comes from an Indian tribe rather than the insect!). Sparsely populated with vast tracts inaccessible except by boat, much of the area is protected and any serious exploration takes dedication and time.
