Get marooned in Corn Island

A paradise for scuba divers, Corn Island is nothing short of kaleidoscopic. The tiny archipelago is surrounded by some of the best dive sites, not just in the Caribbean, but in the world. You've got 2 options when it comes to accommodation. There's Big Corn, a bustling island filled with breezy seafood restaurants, palm-thatched beach bars and colorful Creole houses. Then there's Little Corn, an island that meets every definition of a tropical paradise. Expect gorgeous beaches, sun-dappled coconut groves and not a car in sight. Whichever you choose, Corn Island vacation rentals provide an ideal setting for living out your Robinson Crusoe daydreams.

Things to do

Catch Caribbean tunes on Big Corn Island

While footprint-free beaches are the biggest draw on Corn Island, you'll also find a handful of quirky attractions. If the streets of Big Corn feel a little deserted, simply head up to the Baseball Field, where you'll find half the island cheering on local teams. Housed in an old wooden building, Culture House is another hidden gem on Great Corn. The pocket-sized museum is filled with island memorabilia and serves as a jam-session venue for locals in the evenings.


Devour fresh seafood in Corn Island

Whether you're a seasoned PADI pro, or a total beginner, Corn Island dive shops cater to every level. You'll find them on both Big Corn and Little Corn. Get your logs ready because you're guaranteed to spot nurse sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, tropical fish and a host of colorful nudibranchs. Seafood fiends will be in their element, with both islands serving up a smorgasbord of grilled lobster, BBQ shrimp, creamy fish curries and other local specialties. Penciled in a rest day? With swaying hammocks and lush gardens, Corn Island vacation rentals are the perfect place to catch a little R&R.


Catch the Corn Island sweet spot

Most visitors arrive in the Nicaraguan summer, which spans from December to May. Like the rest of the Caribbean, Corn Island enjoy months on end of sunshine. While May to November is technically green season, months like September and October have emerged as Corn Island sweet spots. You'll beat the crowds and have every chance of clear skies and calm water. Temperatures hover around the 80s and 90s throughout the year, which means that if the sun's out you can always hit the beach.
