Big Corn Island Vs Little Corn Island

One question I get a lot of is which island people should visit when they go to Nicaragua, Big Corn Island or Little Corn Island. Usually I suggest both but I wrote this comparison to help portray the main differences between the two islands.

They both offer world class diving and excellent snorkeling opportunities as well great local food and views to die for. The differences can be very subtle so check out this guide on which Corn Island to choose!

Laguna de Apoyo is a crater lake said to be the result of Volcano Apoyo imploding on itself over 20,000 years ago. It is 48 square kilometres and the deepest point has been measured at 200 metres. It gets deep very quickly but is naturally warm and filled with volcano mineraly goodness. Like many beaches in Central America, the lake has a black sand beach.

While staying at a backpacker resort in Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua, I met a lovely lady who invited me to her 30th birthday party that was happening in San Juan Del Sur. It was to be on a Friday night, followed by a weekend of festivities with the big event on Sunday at Sunday Funday.
