Looking to get away from everything? This is the place. Getting there was an adventure as missed the official panga boat trip to get to Little Corn Island (our plane was late). Ended hiring someone who took us across the ocean in his little boat - an exhilarating and thrilling experience (potentially a stupid decision). Upon arriving at Casa Iguana, we were shown to our cabin with a front porch facing the ocean with hammocks and chairs, own private bathrooms, outdoor shower and comfy bed with mosquito net. The grounds at Casa Iguana were beautifully kept, and the meals were amazing. The chef was trained at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) ..... we unexpectedly enjoyed a new delicious cake every night. The staff were over the top helpful and friendly. Very communal and friendly lodgings - where we played games, drank Flor de Cana (Nicaraguan rum - awesome, delicious stuff) and hung out in the evenings. Day time was spent on the beach, swimming, laying around, reading in hammocks and exploring the island. The island is small (no roads - pure jungle).
We loved it and are considering going back. Great meals were had at Casa Iguana (as mentioned above) Habana Libre, Carlitos and Peace Love Farm (an adventure to get to on the other side of the island).
Thanks to the staff at Casa Iguana .
