Are there lots of mosquitoes on the Mosquito Coast

The Mosquito Coast is an area 64 miles (103 kilometers) wide and approximately 250 miles (400 kilometers) long along Nicaragua’s eastern shore. Though the Mosquito Coast receives an average of 250 inches (635 centimeters) of rain annually, making it a perfect breeding place for mosquitoes, the Mosquito Coast was named after the indigenous people of the area, the Mosquito Indians.

Off the coast of Belize are beautiful shallow reefs.
