Welcome to Great Corn Island
The bigger of Nicaragua's two most lovely islands, Great Corn (called Big Corn by locals) is a wonderfully manageable and authentic slice of the Caribbean that combines some cracking stretches of golden sand beach with a rich and independently minded English-speaking culture. Here you'll find barefoot bars, commercial fishing wharfs, baseball games on the beach and smiling young lobster divers, catch in hand, wherever you go. An ever-present armada of elders sitting in rocking chairs on creaky front porches, and several jungle-swathed headlands to explore, complete the picture. It’s a place where reggae and country music can coexist without irony, where fresh lobster is a staple ingredient rather than a luxury, and the longer you stay, the less you'll want to leave.
