Scuba Diving and Snorkeling on Little Corn Island
Located off Nicaragua's Caribbean Coast, Little Corn Island is a tiny piece of paradise. With no roads for cars or motorbikes, you're forced to slow down and explore the island on foot or by bicycle. While the island's lobster curry at $8 is alone worth the visit, you'll also find turquoise water with great visibility, perfect for snorkeling and diving. The main sidewalk in town is home to a handful of dive shops where you can get PADI certified for around $300. Be sure to do your research before committing to a shop to ensure your safety throughout the course. If snorkeling is more your vibe, ask a tour company if you can combine it with a fishing trip and beach BBQ. After a few snorkel stops, you'll fish for about 30 minutes and use the daily catch to make rondón, the local coconut milk seafood stew. You can help make the feast or opt to relax on the beach drinking beers and listening to music while your guide takes care of the cooking. It doesn't get much better than that.
