The highlands and Caribbean islands
Caribbean and the East image

The mountainous central region is covered with oak and pine forests, and coffee plantations. The Atlantic coast is prone to heavy rain and fearsome mosquitos (Moskitia was never colonised by the Spanish) and the major industries are gold mining, fishing and timber. 70km off the Caribbean coast, the lovely Corn Islands are renowned for their pristine white beaches and undisturbed coral reefs.
