Little Corn is not yet on the diving map as it is hard to get to. It takes
a trip to Managua and than plane ride to Big Corn and then about a 40
minute boat ride across the open water to Little Corn, which is a tiny
island that is a true throw-back to the Carribean of 30 years ago. 

Do not go for world class diving. Go for the relaxed island environment and
the excellent diving that is possible if the winds are not up. If the winds
are down, this is an enjoyable week of interesting shallow diving with
plenty of bottom time, unique swim-throughs and sharks and eagle rays and
maybe a visit to a previously unexplored site. The dive shop crew is a fun
bunch and Bryce from New Zealand runs a top notch operation and has
excellent equipment that I would rent any time. Dive sites are 5 to 10
minutes away in small boats.

The best place to stay is the Casa Iguana which is also the owner of the
dive shop. The environmentally-sensitive, rustic cabins are comfortable and
the food is beyond what you would expect here in Paradise. You will also
meet some of the most interesting people at happy hour and dinner as a
certain type of sophisticated, intrepid traveler stays here.
