After our epic journey to reach these islands, we finally settle down in Big Corn Island for a few days…This time no google map but a local map shoot on the wall of a house in Playa Coco.
We spend our nights in a little hostal, “La Casa Blanca” facing Coco beach. We are only 1m away from the blue azul and warm water. What’s else?
The next morning, we rent some bikes to explore the island.
Firstly the South West Bay which is, for us, the most beautiful beach of the island. Not to say that our judgement is subjective as the weather turned to overcast when we visit the other beaches.
After this first break, it is time for lunch break… We ride toward the inside of the island and stop at the end of the airport runaway where we find a local and small place… Best lunch ever at a competitive price. Indeed. We are served two massive plates made of grilled fish, rice, tortillas with beans & onions and finally some tasty fried sliced bananas.
Once the lunch over, we leave on our bike to speed up the digestion. We ride toward the west part of the island but the weather starts to turn to grey and by the time we arrive there, it rains…
Staying under a straw hut and watching the rain, or playing “petanque” with coconuts or breaking them to drink coconut milk are our activities while the pouring rain wet everything and cool down the air temperature (but it is still warm)
Once the rain stops, we leave toward the north part of the island to reach Sally Peach beach.. Before reaching it we see this yellow sign.. What does that mean? Be careful not to drive onto them or be careful they can catch you…. (And it looks like they have already caught part of the sign)
On Sally Peach beach, it is coconut bread mode… We love it!!!
Our ride around the island is over and we now go back to “La Casa Blanca”.. Tomorrow, we will leave Big Corn to go to it little sister, Little Corn Island.
Blog you soon from Corn Island.
