The water was super clear and visibility was great. The dive was 40 feet and Aly did awesome (Chris did great as usual)
After we finished up, we grabbed a pizza at a local joint next door called Mango's Pizza, that had fresh pineapple and pepperoni, along with some fresh fruit juice to refuel. This place was literally a tiny single room "convenient store" that also made pizza. We don't know where they made the pizza but there was a shack behind the store that looked probable. Whatever...we were starving and Brendon highly recommended it. We sat at a table right on top of a cliff overlooking the beach where we had just been. It was super cool and very relaxing. After we stuffed ourselves, we hiked back to our side of the island to catch some sun and chill out for a bit before our next excursion...horseback riding.
4 pm came around and "Henry," another islander, met us on the beach in front of LCBB with 4 horses for a sunset horseback ride around the island with Toby and Rachel
We rode back to the lookout tower that gave the 360 degree view and saw the island at sunset. It was a bit cloudy, but still a beautiful night. We made it safely back to the bungalows just as the last bit of light was fading. We were all elated from the ride but hungry. Again we ate at the Turned Turtle restaurant and Toby and Rachel treated us to an amazing lobster Béarnaise dinner (special of the night at LCBB) for letting them stay with us for the last night. We stuffed ourselves, reminisced and laughed about the day, and talked of our cultural differences and similarities. Rachel and Toby were really great to hang out with and talk to. I really hope we get to see them again
On this particular night there was a island wide bonfire on the other side of the island. Apparently it happens every week. It was our last night on the island so of course we were going to take advantage of the local shenanigans. Max, our favorite waiter at the Turned Turtle, led us across the island to Tranquilo (a restaurant/bar on the other side of the island). We taught our Swiss friends the electric slide and a handful more Europeans joined in, excited to learn the Texas line dance. It was pitch black walking back to LCBB and luckily we had a flash light. We packed up our bags and got a few hours of sleep before having to leave at 5:45 am the next morning to make our way to San Juan del Sur and SURFING! Little Corn Island was by far one of the coolest places either of us had ever been. It will always be a very special place to us and we hope to get to visit there again.
