The Corn Islands (Spanish: Las Islas del Maíz) are two islands about 70 kilometres (43 mi) east of the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua, constituting one of 12 municipalities of the South Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region. The official name of the municipality is Corn Island (the English name is officially used in Spanish-speaking Nicaragua).

Was hoping to get to Blowing Rock with Dos Tiburones while I was on the Corn Islands, but was unable due to rough seas. Nevertheless, had a great experience getting a few dives in with the team. Very professional, very fun. Would highly recommend reaching out to Tonya and she'll hook you up!

Loved visiting the Corn Island Dive Center. The couple running the center were very professional, knowledgeable, safe and welcoming. I heard them give thorough PADI instructions in English, French, and Spanish in one day. The sites were beautiful and the equipment was well maintained. Very reasonable prices too, would be a good deal for Open Water.

I love the Corn Islands, but Little Corn is a much better experience in comparison to Big Corn Island. However, there is a beach on Big Corn called Sally Peachy that delivers amazing snorkeling and beautiful sunbathing, all while being yards away from coconut milk, fruit, and an amazing little restaurant.
Snorkeling right in front of the little green house that serves coffee, coconut milk, and fresh coconut bread (you WILL NOT find better tasting coconut bread anywhere) is where it's at. The owners of the shack are amazing people who are extremely kind and generous. We try to buy all of their bread when we can. They even have a little ornery capuchin monkey in the backyard that will swoon over women and make faces at men.
If you're staying at Big Corn Island, Sally Peachy is well worth a day on the beach. Super pleasant, super peaceful, super clear, and super tranquilo.

Wow! What can I say? From the moment Joey and Mariel met us from the dock we just got the feeling we were in for the best of times. Joey ouzes professionalism and confidence in the water. Even though I have paddleboarded a lot I still learned a lot from Joey.
Their gear is amongst some of the best inflatable SUPs that I have used to date. After we went on a "tour" we were treated like Gods and taken to secret spots for beer and chilled afternoons in tiny lagoons. Nothing was too much of a problem for Joey and Mariel and we felt like every dollar we spent was returned ten fold.
When we said we fancied pizza this was nothing for Joey who hopped on his bike and went and collected us some.
Joey has a 6 person paddleboard which is so much fun called SUPsquatch.
I truly cannot recommend enough going to Big Corn and hanging out with these guys.

bad choice.... very bad equipment, very unexpeienced staff, very tempered boss. the boss thinks hie equipment is in a perfect state , when Istarted working there the first thing I did was checking all the equipment together with the divemaster in training. he was the 1 that pointed the problem out before I started working. all the regulators had a problem to a life threatning situation. we brought the regs to the boss and told him very friendly to repear the regs. he went mad and said they were ok and he puts them back in the store and went back to his bed..... I packed my bag and left and never worked there..... this is from a pro point of view THE WORST DIVE SHOP EVER in my now 20 year diving traveling....
