The Corn Islands consist of two barefoot paradises in the Caribbean Sea, with a noticeably Afro-Caribbean way of life where English is the local language. The lifestyle here is simple and somewhat cut off from mainland Nicaragua. The beaches are beautiful, palm-fringed and near-empty with pristine turquoise waters offering some of the best snorkelling and diving in the area.
You won’t find high-rise buildings, enormous resorts or many tourists at all, and you’re likely to be eating at simple, local, and family run (but delicious) fish restaurants. The Corn Islands are an excellent option at the end of your trip if you’re looking to get away from it all and experience a true Caribbean paradise.
