Isla de Maiz, or Corn Island, is a municipality 53 km east of the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua. It actually consists of two islands, Big Corn and Little Corn Island. The 10,500 inhabitants are an ethnic group of African origin, Spanish and English speaking, though English Creole is most spoken. The islands’ history includes control by the English, pirates, US, and presently Nicaraguan government. Great Corn Island is about 10 sq.km., and surrounded by white sandy beaches, coconut palms, and exotic fruit trees. The economy has been based on coconut production, commercial fishing, lobster and shrimp fishing.

Tourism is a growing industry, visitors attracted by the coral reefs for snorkelling and scuba diving. This paradise is served by hotels, restaurants and local tour operators. Barracudas, nurse sharks, hammerhead sharks, green sea turtles, and spotted eagle rays are among the marine life that can be seen around the islands. The island is covered by forest which also attracts visitors, particularly from Europe and North America. Locals have a name for their hospitality and Afro-Caribbean music. To get around at your own pace, rent a golf cart.

The best diving is found off the island’s wide northern end, where the coral reef supports dozens of coral species, sharks, snapper, parrot fish, angelfish and rays. On old maps it was named Islas Esqueletos (Skeleton Islands) because it was inhabited by the Kukras Indians, considered cannibals. Many shipwrecks and treasures still lay scattered along the turquoise shores. In 2013 Islas de Maiz, sighted by Columbus and given the name Mangrove Islands, were declared a National Tourist Heritage. Indeed, here is one of Nicaragua’s main tourist destinations.
