My husband and I cannot possibly lavish enough praise on Little Corn Beach and Bungalow. We have traveled all over the world and have been to many beaches, but I think we've found our favorite place. Montauk Traveler articulated the spirit and mission of LCBB very well; I urge potential visitors make sure they read this review and all the information LCBB itself provides so they fully understand the privileges and responsibilities that come with their visit. LIttle Corn Island is precious and while the influx of tourists can be good for the local economy, they can be very bad for the local ecosystem so it is necessary to respect the rules. The management of LCBB also seems determined to treat its staff well, so those who value non-exploitative travel can feel good about staying here. The food and drinks were delicious - not three Michelin stars, but delicious --and the pina coladas still show up in my dreams. The casitas and grounds were spotless and the staff was among the friendliest and most helpful we've ever encountered (this was true for all the places we stayed in Nicaragua). The water right off the beach was too murky for snorkeling, which was disappointing I don't know if it is different in different seasons or with different weather or if this is chronic. We went snorkeling with Elvis, however, and he provided a fine and safe experience. Yoga with Sara at the lovely Firefly Studio was blissful and her massage might be the best I have ever had. Sara tailored her individual instructions in the yoga class to my physical limitations, but gave others the opportunities to (literally) stretch their practices. Regarding my physical limitations, the Adirondack chairs were comfortable only a short while for me so I really needed either a hammock or a lounge chair. More of both would be great (if possible). That's my one and only suggestion. I couldn't walk around to see the rest of the island, but LCBB is so perfect that I didn't mind. Thank you to everyone who contributed to our spectacular stay. We will be back.
