Getting Here From There
Pictured on the left is the newest, safest transport to and from Little Corn Island, The Paradise (see schedule information below).
Many airlines fly to Managua, here are a few:
When you reach Managua you can stay at our associate hotel (we suggest the Camino Real, don't forget to call for your reservation and ask for the Little Corn Beach and Bungalow discount). When making your reservations, just ask for the Little Corn Beach and Bungalow rate to receive our lower negotiated rate for our special guests.
Getting to Little Corn from Managua:
While you are in Managua, we can help you arrange safe and reliable transport in Managua and to other destinations such as Granada, San Juan Del Sur and Leon. Just get a hold of us and let us know you would like help. Or call Rogellio, our english speaking associate at 001-505-8-623-4460, he or his brother Claudio can help with safe reliable transportation. Let him know you are staying with us.
Big Corn to Little Corn:
After arriving at Big Corn Airport retrieve your bags and ask one of the local cab drivers if they will take you to Brigg Bay to catch the PARADISE or the Panga to Little Corn. But, before you depart the airport we recommend that you go into the departure terminal and confirm with the La Costena representative behind the desk your departure reservation (phone service can be very limited on LCI and this may be your only opportunity to confirm your reservation).
Paradise: Paradise is a converted luxury yacht. Owned by a Little Corn Island businessman, it recently started plying the waters between Big Corn Island and Little Corn Island as a government approved commercial passenger transport. This welcome addition to transportation options between the islands sports, enclosed seating (great if you don't like to get wet), more stable passage (great if you don't like to get really banged around) and beverages for sale (great if you are thirsty) These factors and more make us believe that it is probably a bit safer too. The passage takes about the same amount of time as the alternative, the open panga. Cost is $8.50US and no reservations are needed.
