 Access

English (Translate this text in English): One has to take a 1 plus hour flight from Managua to Big Corn Island on the Atlantic side of Nicaragua. From there take the morning or afternoon 30-45 min. water taxi to Little Corn Island. Walk the 10 minute long path toward Casa Iguana Hotel. If you are styaing there, the launch is on their beach. If not, you should walk around the hotel which leaves you just a hair down the beach from them. They have all the weather data there. If you have a lot of gear you might be able to hire a guy with a wheelbarrel to get you there. There are other beaches to explore, but I think this is the safest, with few corral heads and a good spot to hang out. Try Elsa's too, or Cool Spot. But Casa Iguana would be the safest for you personal belongings while out.

 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): There is some hidden reef. No one's ever been on past the outer reef, but there is a channel. I wouldn't suggest it. There is no rescue service and if something fouls up and no one's watching you, off you go never to be heard from again. Only a handful of people have ever sailed or gone kiting here. Access is the only issue. Just scout out the reef pretty well before you go. Ask the local fishermen to tell you where the coral heads are. Most of the dark spots are sea grass and you can go out about 50 meters before it's over your head.
