Beach lovers are sure to create wonderful memories that will bring you back for more.
The best Nicaraguan beaches can be found in:
The Corn Islands
Like most of Central America, Nicaragua has beaches on both the Caribbean and Pacific Coasts. The Corn Islands are located about 70 kilometers off the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua, a set of two small islands that are rapidly gaining a lot of attention as must visit locations.
The two islands are known as Corn Island (area of 10 square kilometers) and Little Corn Island (about 3 square kilometers). Most travelers go to the Corn Islands to relax, enjoy the white sand beaches, and take in some of the local traditions. Unlike the rest of Nicaragua, the Caribbean Coast, including the Corn Islands, have Afro-American descents, making their culture drastically different than those descending from Native American tribes.
Other popular activities include sightseeing, attending local baseball games (number one sport in Nicaragua), and SCUBA diving which attracts a large percentage of tourist and travelers.
Morgan’s Rock Hacienda & Ecolodge
San Juan del Sur is popular for the surf and vivid nightlife it offers every day of the week. However, Morgan’s Rock offers a great chance to visit San Juan del Sur and take a break from the turmoil and relax on a secluded beach surrounded by exuberant nature. Combine amazing tours and hikes in private natural reserves with experienced tour guides so you don’t miss a beat.
