TripAdvisor Reviews La Princesa de la Isla Big Corn Island
Travel Blogs from Big Corn Island
... to describe, as it is without doubt the most idyllic island we have stayed on, it is only about a mile long by a ¼ mile wide. There are no roads so no cars and everything is taken around via hand cart or push bike. The people all speak either Creole (which is like English but cooler, everything is alllrrrriiiigggghhht) or Spanish. There is only power on the island between 1pm and 6am which you may think sounds ok, but when the temperature is around 33 degrees ...
... Little. Little Corn Island just recently got electricity but it's only on for part of the day. There is no phone service, no wifi, no television - the perfect place to go off the grid. Many travelers go there just to do that. Being a solo traveler I opted for the Big Corn Island - just for safety reasons - I wasn't completely comfortable going off the grid. Maybe by the middle/end of my trip I'll be ready for that!
... this with fruit, eggs and coconut bread that we bought on the island. Some prices on Little Corn: Egg 6C ($0.2), Coconut bread 30C ($1), tomatoes 30C ($1) per libra, local white cheese 35C ($1.2) per libra. Most groceries are available on the island for about double the mainland price.
Refill your water for free at Tranquilo (filtered water) even if you are not buying anything.
Tranquilo café and Café Desideri both have wi-fi and good coffee ...
... elephants and let him take pictures of things. Just then my German friends from Ometepe Chris and Christina showed up and Chris played with the boy some more, picking him up over his head and what not. We walked back to our hostel, they were staying there as well, together and caught up on what each other had been doing. I went back to my tent and showered and stuff to get ready for the night before heading back up to the Lighthouse to see what everyone was ...
... t say they were people I would choose to hang out with again, but they were fun to meet. They are the type of travelers that kind of baffle me on what they choose to spend money on. Drugs and alcohol is basically it and then they skimp out on everything else. It seems to me you can do drugs and drink any where, so why would that be your priority we you are in an amazing new place?? Oh well.
I left to shower off and relax a bit before dinner while Dean stayed behind to hang out ...
