Corn Islands

The Corn Islands are located about 50 miles (80 km) off the coast of Nicaragua in the Caribbean Sea.

The two main islands are Big Corn and Little Corn. Both were originally colonized by the British, and most native islanders have more in common culturally with other English-speaking Caribbean islands than they do with the mainland of Nicaragua.

Travel infrastructure on both islands remains simple, relaxed, and friendly, and includes small eco-friendly lodges using sustainable power.

In addition to its many beaches, which provide access to excellent snorkeling, it is also possible to arrange for diving tours.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
