Little Corn Island… “Relaxed” Would be an Understatement

“Relaxed” Would be an Understatement…
Little Corn Island, Nicaragua

Admittedly, travelling around the pristine beaches of the Philippines spoiled me. Like, real bad. Since then, I’ve been way too judgmental about other beautiful places I’ve been, but I can’t help it – The Philippines were just incredible.

That being said, Little Corn Island was absolutely awesome…

Situated 70 kilometers (43 miles) east of the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua, Little Corn Island is an extremely relaxed and quiet island. Accessible only by a twice-daily 30-minute panga (ferry) from Big Corn Island, there are no motorized vehicles and therefore no roads – The 2.9 square kilometer island is intertwined with thin concrete and muddy jungle paths roam through the thick jungle between each coast. The main strip on the western side is dotted with small restaurants, stores, and dive shops while the eastern side is mainly made up of lodging and beach-side bungalows. Other than that, Little Corn Island consists of stunning deserted beaches (the best of which were on the northern side) and pristine coral reefs.

It was the type of place where you feel like a local after only a couple of days and loading onto the panga back to Big Corn Island was straight-up depressing.

    Fantastic photos! Thanks for sharing. We’ll be there in February. We’re going to Big Corn, and weren’t even sure we would go to Little Corn since it’s so small, but after reading this we’ll go for sure!
