WELCOME TO THE CARIBBEAN OF NICARAGUA!
Hotel BELLAVISTA welcomes you on Corn Island in Nicaragua, the forgotten tropical paradise in the Caribbean. Only 50 miles northeast of the mainland are the two tiny Corn Islands located. The Big Corn Island and the Little Corn Island are the last secrets of the Caribbean. The deserted beaches, family-owned hotels and bed and breakfasts, surrounded by exotic fruit trees and palms, are visted by only a few adventures travellers.
Already in the 17th century pirates from all over the Caribbean discovered the Corn Islands. 300 years later the first tourists managed to arrive here on this lonely spot of Nicaragua. Today you can dive the history of this paradies by discovering a 400 year old spanish galeon which drowned just a few meters away from the beach. The canons are still in good shape and an anker is lying only 14 feet down on the ground of the Caribbean sea. The reefs around the Corn Islands are stunning. Rich in tropical fish and corals you can find good snorkeling spots close to the beach or just find yourself on one of the white sanded beaches and enjoy the clear turquoise water.
Nowadays the locals live from catching and selling fresh fish but tourism is growing and some of them take already good care, ones you are arriving here. The Islands are developing slowly and with them our Hotel BELLAVISTA: Giorgio and Teresa are the protagonists of this tiny business. Originally from Italy they are already 20 years on Big Corn Island and they welcome you warmly to their beautiful caribbean-styled hotel which feels, like being home.
