As it makes its way to the Caribbean Sea, the Coco River forms the border between Nicaragua and Honduras. The coastline is of low relief, and has plentiful water bodies, relic shorelines, and high temperatures. The Mosquito Coast is so called from its principal inhabitants, the Miskito Indians, whose name was corrupted into Mosquito by European settlers. The Mosquito Indians, of whom there are several tribes, are short of stature and very dark-skinned. The first European settlement in the Mosquito country started in 1630, when the agents of the English chartered Providence Company occupied two small cays and established friendly relations with the local inhabitants. The ASTER simulated natural color image covers an area of 28.6 x 39.1 km, was acquired on December 5 2002, and is centered near 15 degrees north latitude, 83.3 degrees west longitude.
