The highest peaks in our mountainous central highlands arecapped with the mysterious and beautiful tropical cloud forest. Called the "weeping woods" for the constant dripping of condensed fog from the ever-present clouds, this is a lush, dense forest in which every branch and trunk are covered with mosses, bromeliads and orchids. Our northand south coasts are lined with towering, old growth mangrove swamps and coastal lagoons rich with life. And our entire northeast corner is a vast, trackless wilderness called La Mosquitia, also known as the "Mosquito Coast". Huge and remote,it is part of the largest intact rain forest north of South America. Accessible only by air or by small boats, La Mosquitia is home to several indigenous tribes that live as integral parts of their diverse tropical rainforest home. For these reasons we call La Mosquitia "Central America's Little Amazon."
