Before starting this post, I would like to add a few details about our current situation…
- Our trip around the world is almost finished as we are currently in France and will be back to Sydney in a bit more than 16 days…
- But this blog is not yet over
- We still have one month and half of travel stories to tell you so around 60 posts to write (in both french and english) and around 3,500 pictures to sort out for the blog.
We are friday 28th of June and on our way to Little Corn Island… Big Corn little sister…
We get there by boat (the local lanchas) that we take from Big Corn harbour… 25 minutes later under a strong sun we arrive in Little Corn.. Some locals are there along with a sign “Welcome to heaven on earth).. Quite nice…. Crossing the sea between the two islands was quite smooth but we have been told is usually rougher especially during the month of November to January when the wind blows.
Overthere, we stay at the Three Brother that we like a lot. Nice room and terrace plus the fact there is a kitchen to cook… When you travel for a few months, it is always nice to be able to cook your own food… You don’t have to rely on restaurant which usually blow your budget away. And the little sister is quite popular among the tourist and therefore more expensive…
Little Corn is more popular than her sister and maybe more idyllic than Big Corn. As a result you can find more resort, hotel and restaurant which push the price up… But it is still far cheaper than some island in the Caribbean
Why Corn Island?
These islands are a good alternative of two Honduran island (Roatan and Utilan)… Less developed (estate wise), more original, you will enjoy as well less people…
What to do on Little Corn Island
Unlikely to it other sister, we didn’t need to rent a bike. Our legs were enough to walk across the 3 square kilometers of the island filled up with beaches, avocado trees, mango trees and palm trees.
Doing almost nothing is our motus for the next week or so… Wake up early morning by the heat, you crawl then to the beach until mid-day until the heat become unbearable. At this time, the nap is a must do… Then the rain hits the island form 12pm to 3pm… We are going back to the beach until the night falls down.
We visited the various beaches that Little Corn has to offer… Below is a little gallery:
We went twice snorkeling around the island where we met tortules, sharks and ray.
We tasted some local dishes such as the fruit bread porridge, the run-down and some fresh lobsters.
Nothing really, but now it is time to discover it by yourself…
Blog you soon,
