Someone told us that bags of money and/or drugs have been found floating in the ocean around Little Corn Island, Nicaragua. Drug dealers on the ocean might see another boat, perhaps a police/army boat, get scared of getting caught and quickly dump the drugs or money overboard. When we asked what people who found such bags did… Continue reading →
For such a tiny island, we had some amazing varieties of food on Little Corn Island. There was mostly Nica (Nicaraguan) food, but our favourite restaurant was the Cuban Café, which served delicious Coconut Lobster. Dinners at Lobster Inn The dinners at our hotel, the Lobster Inn, were typical Nica food: fried pork or ribs or chicken, rice… Continue reading →
Are you totally bored with typical canned packaged same-old holidays? Longing for something a little different? Are you tired of walking half a mile down corridors, waiting for elevators, then walking another half mile of paved walks to get to an over-stuffed pool or a crowded beach with people lined-up like dominoes? Are you sick of having to… Continue reading →
It was hard to leave charming and colonial Granada. After playing like children on an uninhabited island, being amazed on our walk in the cloud rain forest and screaming through an invigorating zip line across the top of the Nicaraguan jungle, it was hard to imagine that anything could beat those experiences. But we had this idea that we should… Continue reading →
Internet Hut: After receiving 3 or 4 completely different directions for getting to the only Internet access on Little Corn Island, we traipsed through the jungle to the East side of the island and after ten minutes came to a tiny Gilligan Island style hut with two old computers. We paid $12 an hour to use the computer. It was… Continue reading →
It was another warm sunny day, and we were down for breakfast at the Lobster Inn on Little Corn Island. Everyone was friendly and chatting, including the staff and locals. One of the staff, the owner’s niece, tells us that there was a big fire on Big Corn Island last night. Two people died and it looked like the people may… Continue reading →
We couldn’t take enough pictures of the demure children of Little Corn Island. One morning when we walked past the school on the path through the jungle to the centre of the island, we took some photos of the school children on a break. We stopped to talk to the teacher. He said that they desperately needed… Continue reading →
At last! Big Corn Island disappeared far off in the distance. No more threatening thugs, no more loud music, no more hurtling cars – just crystal clear blue water, soft sand, and the sweet sweet quiet of Little Corn Island. That’s right – there are no roads on Little Corn Island, and no cars. A taxi driver on… Continue reading →
We didn’t want to go to crime-and-drug-ridden Big Corn Island but we had no choice. It was the only way to get to gorgeous Little Corn Island on the virtually unknown Caribbean side of Nicaragua. First we had to fly from Managua to Big Corn Island, then take a small boat to Little Corn. We had contemplated a long… Continue reading →
We had been offered an opportunity to stay at a new upscale development of villas on the Pacific coast near Rivas, Southern Nicaragua, for a free luxurious weekend. Rancho Santana was spread over 2700 acres on the rocky Pacific coastline with 5 beaches. The homes were for sale of course, and they hoped, by offering a free stay, you might invest in… Continue reading →
While we were still enjoying the lovely town and relaxing atmosphere of Granada, Nicaragua, we wanted to see the Volcano Mombacho, still active we had been told, as well as the cloud forest in the mountains and to experience the jungle zip line. We were both a little worried about the zip line and whether we could manage climbing… Continue reading →
After missed and delayed flights, and a cramped old hotel in Managua, arriving in Granada was a delightful surprise. It was a pretty town with a gorgeous town square featuring a huge pink and white gazebo, food vendors selling all kinds of snacks and sweets, vendors selling jewelry and hats and balloons, children playing, adults chatting, and everyone… Continue reading →
It started with a comedy of errors. Freezing rain cancelled our flight out of Toronto to Nicaragua so there were 40-minute line-ups at the pay phones just to try to re-schedule. T was relatively new at “travel glitches” and was wringing his hands in anxiety. After many years of travel I was used to flight delays, but this long forty-minute… Continue reading →
