Comments December 2006 was windy and unsettled. Water choppy and very stirred up since diving is very shallow at Little Corn Island. Casa Iguana under new managament - very, very basic - felt that they should be charging less for their accomodations - they were overpriced compared to their competition. Dive Litle Corn is owned by Casa Iguana owners. Seemed well run, but hard to tell since ther were not many divers in December. Week before I arrived the 45 min open 30' 'ferry' from Big Corn Island was not able to run for 6 days because of rough seas. I was booked for 9 days but left after 4 because of poor diving conditions. Would not return to Little Corn because it's too shallow. However, the natives there were very friendly.
