The larger of the two islands, Big Corn Island offers a laid-back atmosphere and tropical island scenery. Once a haven for pirates, a number of shipwrecks still lay under the waters surrounding the island, making diving here both a natural and cultural adventure. Tourism in Big Corn Island has been developing, but the island still has the feel of a Caribbean getaway, with a local and homely vibe in the refreshingly rustic bars and well-positioned accommodations. Big Corn Island is in Corn Islands. Whether you only want to go to Big Corn Island, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Nicaragua road trip tool .
