Corn Islands in Nicaragua

Corn Islands (Corn Islands) are two islands were discovered by Christopher Columbus and are facing the coast of Nicaragua and separated by about 70 kilometers from the sea. The largest is called Big Corn Island , while the other is called Little Corn Island . They both add up to about 13 square kilometers with hardly any population, so they are perfect for a quiet vacation with hardly any people.

These two islands are one of the small paradises that you can find in the Caribbean and that were once invaded by pirates, later managed by a British protectorate, later by the United States and since 1971 they belong to Nicaragua. Spanish and English are the predominant languages ​​so you will have no problem communicating.

On the small island is where you find a more virgin and rustic territory, while on the big one there is more population, infrastructure and services. In both you can find spectacular natural landscapes and paradisiacal beaches that are perfect for relaxing both alone and as a couple or family. Little by little they have been growing since each year they exceed the number of tourists, thanks in part to its beaches but also to coral reefs or activities such as diving or snorkeling.

One of the best things about these two islands is that they still do not receive large masses of tourists, but with the growth they are having, they will become the most visited in a few years. On the small island you have few accommodation options, only a few cabins but they are ideal for a relaxing vacation. In addition, there are neither paved streets nor any modernity such as telephones or Internet, so to disconnect from the madding crowd it is perfect. On the big island you do find more services and many things to do, as well as several restaurants and entertainment venues to combine relaxing holidays with some entertainment.
