Corn Island

Corn Island is located about 70 kilometers east of the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua. It lies in the Caribbean Sea surrounded by beautiful white, sandy beaches and wonderful snorkelling and diving spots with underwater visibility up to 80 feet. If you take a good look on the map, you will find Paraiso on the south-west side of Corn Island, right on the unspoiled “Shipwreck Beach”. Corn Island is full with exotic fruit trees, native palms and surrounded by white sand beaches. A haven for pirates and buccaneers in the 17th century. An untold number of shipwrecks and treasures still lay scattered along the turquoise shores. The islanders, descendant from the original British prospectors and freed slaves, make their living from harvesting lobster and fish from the prolific, offshore fishing banks. Many Miskito Indians from the nearby "Miskito Coast" as well as Nicaraguans from the "mainland" have moved to Corn Island in recent years, diversifying the population and languages overheard on the island. Still, the laid back atmosphere and lifestyle seems to overtake anyone who visits Corn Island.
