Tips / Destination

If you’re looking for a little-known, exclusive Caribbean island for your next getaway, head to Little Corn Island, off the coast of Nicaragua.


Getting there is no simple task. First, you have to take a domestic flight from Managua to Big Corn Island and then a boat ride to Little Corn Island.


About 50 miles off the mainland, Dutch pirate Alexander Olivier Esquemeling originally discovered the spot (or so he claims) in the 1600s. Little Corn Island was first occupied by the Kutra Indians, who were then overtaken by the Miskito Indian warriors; later, the British settled Corn Island in the 1700s and eventually freed the by-then enslaved locals.


Today, Little Corn Island is home to select tourists staying at boutique hotels, including one recently re-opened and newly accepting guests as of December, Yemaya Island Hideaway.


This boutique property offers three different ways to see the island. You can book just a room only, for $95 a night, and explore the island in a self-guided way; you can also book a “deluxe” stay, which comes with water equipment rentals for water sports, WiFi and breakfast; or you can additionally book premium stays, with all your meals included, for just $200 per double room.


In total, the property only offers 16 oceanfront suites, five with individual plunge pools and all backing up to a white-sand beach. There are organic gardens that produce ingredients for the on-property Creole- and Caribbean-style dining. Guest activities include sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling and kite-surfing.
