TripAdvisor Reviews Arenas Beach Hotel Big Corn Island
Travel Blogs from Big Corn Island
The end to this year was quite an adventure. I went to the atlantic coast of Nicaragua and the corn islands with a friend Anabella. Normally you fly to the corn islands from the capital Managua, but we decided to go the long way round and take the 6 hour bus ride across the interior of Nicaragua, then the 2 hour speed boat up the river to bluefields. The next day we took a very long (6 hours), wet, somewhat scary boat ride to the Big Corn Island. The ride was ...
... people we saw in arrival were a couple from Las Penitas, Jim and Sandra (they weren't young). We had dinner with them that night which was lovely.

Up in the boat we reapply sunscreen, have a snack and talk how great Blowing Rock is and compare 'favourite' stories. After about 40 minutes we gear back up and go down for another exploration. Once again I am blown away ...
