Your day-by-day itinerary

Plane flying over Nicaragua

Day 1

Arrival on Great Corn Island

To get to the Corn Islands you’ll need to catch a domestic flight from Managua, which we’ve included in the price of this trip. On arrival at the small airport on the Corn Islands, you’ll take care of your luggage and leave the airport. Outside are a lot of taxi drivers ready to take you to your hotel. All taxi fares here are around two dollars. You’ll stay in one of just 15 bungalows scattered around tropical gardens.

Day 2

Snorkelling Trip

Today you’ll explore the underwater world surrounding the Corn Islands. As you submerge yourself in the deep blue waters of the lukewarm Caribbean Sea, you’ll find a fascinating underwater world. Just below the surface you’ll be met by beautiful coral reefs. Here you can spot sharks, barracudas, stingrays and parrotfish, but the waters are also inhabited by sea turtles and dolphins. Maybe today will be your lucky day!

Day 3

Free Time

Today is completely free to do as you please. Why not start the day with a lie-in and relaxed breakfast? When you’re ready you can grab your swimming costume and head to the beach. Your hotel is in fact right on the beach and at the beach bar you’ll find cool drinks and reggae music. Spend the evening in one of the cosy local restaurants where freshly caught fish is served. Why not try the local ceviche? It’s definitely an experience!

Free Time

Optional day trip

Golf Cart Tour

If you fancy exploring more of the island you can travel around by golf cart. Complete with road map, with the sights already marked, you’ll drive around the island. You’ll drive on the main road to the green hilly interior where you’ll find some short walks mapped out for you. By lunchtime you’ll be back at your lodge giving you the afternoon free.

Day 4


Sadly, today is the last day of your stay on the Corn Islands, but the likelihood is that you’ll feel as though you haven’t had long enough here. If so, we can extend your stay on the island with an extra night or two, just let us know. You’ll make your own way back to the airport where we’ll arrange your flight back to Managua.

"Nicaragua was always my favourite place to pass through during my time spent in Central America. It's full of surprises, from its coffee-rich plantations and volcanic islands, to its colonial cobbles streets & coral reefs."
