Doing Little Corn Island in style



While Little Corn Island is the very definition of an off-the-beaten-track destination, recent developments have made it possible to experience this secret Caribbean island with a reasonable degree of luxury. Word has gotten out about this place, but it is still relatively unspoiled: as such, the time to experience this place is now.

With so much Little Corn Island land for sale, it’s not hard to look five years down the road and imagine this place being less idyllic and serene than it is right now. With that in mind, check out our guide below so that you can do Little Corn Island in style before it is too late…

STAY: Yemaya Resort

Located on the east coast of Little Corn Island, Yemaya Resort is a luxury lodge that blends seamlessly into the surrounding environment with its ecologically sensitive design.

The focus on luxury begins at Managua’s international airport, with priority boarding on your La Costena flight to Big Corn Island. It continues with a private boat transfer from the public wharf to Yemaya Resort.

Rooms contain comfortable king-size beds, a sizable bathroom with an indoor garden, and 24 hour power that is supplied by solar panels.

Equipped with a yoga studio, a bar and restaurant, and one of the most beautiful beaches on the island,  it is a place that you will have a hard time leaving at the end of your stay.

EAT: Cafe Desideri

On days when you find yourself in the main village, eat lunch or dinner (or both) at Cafe Desideri. Specializing in Italian food, you’ll be surprised at the quality that you will find at such a humble looking establishment.

From serving up the best coffee on the island, to making good use of the fresh seafood catches that come ashore every day, you’ll be blown away by your experience here.

In the evenings, there is often live music to accompany your meal …  just be sure that you have headlamps or transport arranged to get back to Yemaya if you are staying here past sunset.

DO: Go SCUBA diving

Think that the only thing to do on Little Corn Island is to admire its scenery while you lay back in your own personal sun lounger? That’s not at all the case, as SCUBA diving and snorklers have many spectacular reefs to explore all around the island.

Sea turtles, dolphins, and the occasional hammerhead shark will be your companions as you make your way between colorful coral formations.

The underwater world that can be found around Little Corn Island will amaze you just as much as what can be found on dry land.
