Cabanas Vientos Del Norte, "Ike's Place": "Corn Island's best host" Corn Island Hotel Tip by jlsell

Corn Island Hotels: 22 reviews and 54 photos

Our family made a wonderful choice to stay at Ike Siu's Cabanas on the north end of Big Corn Island. The room was large and clean, and the beds comfortable. The accommodations are basic and not fancy, but very adequate for the reasonable price. There were 5 of us staying in one room and Ike accomodated us with an air mattress at no extra charge for our 5th family member. It was cool and breezy on the north shore. We did not need the air-conditioner at all. There are good screens on the windows. No mosquitos bothered us. The best part of our stay was our host Ike. He has lived on the Island most of his life and knows everyone and everything. He picked us up at the airport, gave us a tour of Big Corn and helped us with every questions and need. He had hammocks to rest in hung special for us on his personal veranda, has a library of used paperback books we rummaged through and rented us the flippers and water shoes we needed. Ike is a real gentleman and a great friend. The meals his cook prepared for us were delicious! If we ever get to visit Big Corn again we will definitely stay with Ike !

Unique Qualities: On a beautiful point at the north end of the island. Cool and breezy. Close to coral reefs for snorkeling. Wonderful host/owner. Beach view. Across the street from beach.
