Corn Island Things to Do: 19 reviews and 56 photos

Only a five-minute taxi ride from the airport is Brig Bay which is the main town of Big Corn Island, the 'downtown' area. Typical Caribbean town with a mixed culture (English-speaking Creole population, mainland Nicaraguans and Miskito people from the Caribbean Mosquito coast) and island flavour is actually a group of houses lining the main road. Here you'll find a few hotels, restaurants and shops. There is Internet café and since recently also ATM. Though it often runs out of money so you should plan ahead and bring enough cash with you. The municipal docks are also in Brig Bay with panga boat service to Little Corn Island.

The town is not particularly attractive but you'll find a few nice examples of typical Caribbean architecture. While the swimming in Brig Bay is ok, the best beaches are on Long Bay and Southwest Bay.
