CORN ISLAND "The Forgotten Island of the Caribbean"

Corn Island is located on the South East Coast of Nicaragua, Central America. Located in the Caribbean Sea, 52 miles from the port city of Bluefields. Its population of approximately 2,500 people. The largest of the Corn Islands is approximately four square miles in size. Little Corn Island, about nine miles northeast of the largest island, is a little over one square mile in size with a population of 250. Corn Island has almost 16,400 feet of white sand beach and crystal water which are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and other water sports. Just 17.5 miles from Corn Island are the Pearl Keys. They are practically unexplored and their clear waters are ideal for fishing and diving.

About a mile southeast of Corn Island divers can explore the wreck of Spanish galleon which lies in 72 feet of clear water. Since this area was a favorite haunt of pirates who roamed the Caribbean, it is thought that many other ancient wrecks - some most certainly still containing their rich cargo - lie in the waters off the Corn Islands.  For centuries, the Corn Islands were under British domination and served as a refuge for British, Dutch and French pirates escaping the Spanish fleet. It was not until the year 1894 that the government of Nicaragua declared the area's sovereignty. If you are not looking for a lot of modern conveniences, this may be a place you would like to visit, just to relax and getaway from everything....

 

4 day/3 night
