La Mosquitia, Honduras

La Mosquitia, Honduras
The wilderness area named La Mosquitia, located in the western part of Honduras, has one of the largest tropical rainforests in the world. It is characterized by a great biodiversity and unexplored places.

On 2015, the National Geographic announced that a secret archaeological expedition with the assistance of the Honduran military discovered an unknown ruined city: the legendary Ciudad Blanca, also known as the City of the Monkey God.
Due to his extraordinary biodiversity and by the animals' behaviour, it is supposed that no humans have been in the lost city in the last 600 years, since it was abandoned.  To protect the area, its location is still not revealed.

To be safe, it is necessary to visit the rainforest with a guide, because the area has no tourism facilities and it is nowadays used as a drug route.
