Linger Longer in Nicaragua

Travel to Nicaragua

The Corn Islands, along with the eastern half of present-day Nicaragua, were a British protectorate from 1655 until 1860, a period when the region was called the Mosquito Coast. At one time, the islands were frequented by Caribbean pirates.

Itinerary

While your plane descents to Big Corn Island, notice the spectacular island-scape sprinkled with colorful wooden houses. Big Corn Island is lush, rustic and still mostly unsettled, with beaches perfect for lazy days and peaceful, serene nights.

At lunchtime, wander into a barefoot bar and order up some fresh Caribbean lobster, a Corn Islands staple and their number one industry. Pick a beach and take an afternoon siesta and swim in absolute tranquility. Once you’ve had enough sun and sand for one day, grab dinner in one of Big Corn’s surprisingly plentiful restaurants and sit in awe as you watch the sun dip into the vast, blue Caribbean Sea before heading to your bungalow for the night.

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the hotel before taking a panga (small boat) to the jewel of the Caribbean, Little Corn Island. Yet undiscovered by most, Little Corn will charm you with its old-world feel and laid back Caribbean vibes. A strict no-car zone, Little Corn is a pedestrian paradise, with endless beaches and neighborhood trails lined with fresh fruit trees.

Check in to your bungalow for the night before meandering along virgin shorelines, explore golden coves and get to know the charismatic locals that make Little Corn their home.

Rise early in the morning for breakfast and a few last hours soaking up the magic of this beautiful island. Go for a snorkel, or lounge on the beach.

We’ll make our way back to the airport for your departure home.

Wish you could stay longer? Extend your stay on the Corn Islands or head inland for an adventure in the rainforest!

Bienvenido al paraiso!

Rising gently out of the Caribbean Sea, just 43 miles off the Nicaraguan coast, are the enchanting Corn Islands. Laden with vibrant Caribbean colors and blissfully underdeveloped, Big and Little Corn islands whisk you far away from reality to a primitive paradise right on the verge of becoming the Next Big Thing. Spend restful hours lying in a palm tree-anchored hammock, kick back in a no-fuss beach shack or snorkel from deserted pristine beaches. Savor hand-picked tropical fruits and fresh Caribbean lobster, then pull up a stretch of golden beach and relax for days in a true island paradise.
