Must start trip at Managua airport in a one engine plane,max. ten people and see the Nicaraguan countryside and rain forest from 9,000 feet, exciting and beautiful. Arrive in Big Corn Island, take taxi to harbor and take open boat to Little Corn; people at the harbor and boat are impolite, rude and typically Caribian; half an hour, some what rough ride ( sit int the middle of the open boat
which takes fifty people, the middle bench appears the most dry). Now you arrive on Little Corn Island (lci) and are back to friendly Nicaragua where people are friendly and adorable; there are no cars or any motor driven vehicles on lci and your luggage is loaded into a wheel barrel which you follow by foot for twenty minutes thru the island and now you arrive in paradise; pristine blue and green colored water invites you to a nicely tempered swim on a white and empty beach, with nice and not loud people around, no screaming kids. The hotel consists of about 15 hut like separate, attractive buildings located 50 yards from the beach in a shady palm tree forest. The reception is friendly and professional and explains you very nicely how everything works.
The restaurant is characterized by its friendly, warm and humorous service and it's superb meals from breakfast to dinner and you realy do feel good and happy in this kind of environment.
The only black spot is the water supply or the lack thereof. Toilette paper may not be flushed but put in a separate container which is being emptied by the cleaning personnel. This an inconvenience which is,however,mitigated by the beauty of the location and the attitude of the personnel.
The whole lci experience, once at home, affects you like a beautiful dream.
