Corn Islands Visit: 2007-8
2008-05-12 - The Corn Islands retain all the charm associated with the Caribbean: Turquoise waters, deserted white-sand beaches scattered in between rocky coves and fringed with coconut palms, Garífuna cuisine, magical sunsets, coral reefs, friendly people and an unhurried, peaceful pace of life. Garífuna are a mixture of African, Carib and Arawak and have a distinctive culture, making a living from fishing, primarily lobster and shrimp.

The islands are located in an isolated corner of the Caribbean about 70-85 km off the coast of Bluefileds and don’t see many visitors. Big Corn Island (Isla del Maíz) is the largest with nearly 6000 inhabitants, whereas its diminutive sister Little Corn Island (Isla Pequeña del Maíz) merely has 500 residents.

Almost every visitor to Nicaragua tend to skip the Corn Islands, hence the islands are some of the Caribbean’s unblemished gems, or hidden undeveloped island paradises, if you want.
