when to visit the corn islands


My Husband and I are planning a trip to Nicaragua, leaving Dec 27tth and returning on Jan 11th. my husband would like to visit the Corn Islands to do some Scuba diving, and I would like to go to do some snorkeling and enjoy the beach. When would you recommend us visiting the islands? I have read that it can be really busy around Christmas and new years...would we find accommodation? I don't really care if it's busy.

We are both 29 and love adventure, scenery and meeting people. I have been trying to decide where to go on this trip - should we go to SJDS as well as the corn islands, or is that too much beach? what about grenada and ometepe? Any suggestions would be helpful.

Hello Lemon

You have around 16 days in Nicaragua, you have time to see most of the

beauties of this country, if you land in Managua you can visit Leon is just

1 1/2 hr away (there they have the Volcano Boarding) then you can go to Granada where there are Canopy - Cloud Forest - Kayak - City Tour, other destinies Like Ometepe is good option to see some different than a Colonial City is a place for Hiking -Waterfall - Coffee Plantations, you can try to

stay in San Juan Sur which a good place for Swimming - Surfing or Corn Island for diving or Snorkelling but try to make your reservation ahead of time..

Dec - Jan are like the top of the high season in Nicaragua

We hope your enjoy Nicaragua
