Costeña airlines flew me from Managua to Big Corn island, 70km offshore in the Caribbean sea. With the airport in the middle of the island, it was a full day of walking along the coastline to see the beautiful beaches. The small villages were populated mainly by a Creole population. Local rum (Flor de Caña) and cocos-cookies helped me to survive the tropical storm that kept me on the island for a few days.
I liked the Caribbean vibes on the island and the lobster meals. Few tourists were on the beaches on Big Corn Island because most visitors immediately take the boat to Little Corn Island. I followed them when the water calmed down after the storm.
