Castaway on Nicaragua's Corn Islands

Situated just 70 kilometers east of Nicaragua's Caribbean coast, Big and Little Corn Islands have become a mandatory stop for travelers making their way across Central America.

By the time we arrived at our charming bungalow near the beach, the sun had come out and stayed that way for the next ten days.
