Little Corn Island Video Tour of the “Main Drag”


Today we’re going to view the “main drag” aka “main street” on Little Corn Island, Nicaragua. Let me refresh your memory and remind you that there are no motorized vehicles of any kind. Yes that means no cars, scooters, motorbikes, tractors, you name it. If anything involves a motor it’s at sea and not on shore. As a result, the sidewalk I’m strolling down is the “highway” if you will where the largest vehicle you’ll encounter is the odd bicycle.

Without a doubt the “main drag” is the hub of the island where most of the restaurants are situated, cafe and of course nightlife. Sure there is the odd bonfire here or there but if you like going out at night, I recommend you stay somewhere near such said drag because at the end of the day, walking home in the dark, flashlight or not gets old fast and remember, no cars there.

Just watching this video reminds me how much I love it there and already looking forward to returning.

Tips hat,

    FINALLY. I was really beginning to think this “main drag” was all in your head. Much cuter than I had imagined, thanks for the tour!

    It’s more populated than I thought. Is it like Roatan where many people speak English or are they just used to you and your English language greetings? Looks like fun and a spectacular setting.

      I have never been to Roatan but most of the people do speak English. English and Creole are the most commonly spoken languages in the area. It’s quite nice but unfortunately provides an environment where I can procrastinate really learning Spanish.

    Ahhh I love this! I actually just got back from little corn about two weeks ago. None of my pictures could do the amazing island any justice. Thanks for this video so I can continue to brag about my trip and annoy everyone even more!

    Hey great video!! Helped me get an idea of the place!
    Are there many westerners living there? Are most of the jobs there through diving only? I’m looking for a place to spend 6 – 12 month & as a diver this could be everything I’ve been looking for.

      Hi CJ!

      Glad you like it, I LOVE IT THERE.

      There are quite a few westerners living there at anytime but most come and go. For instance there are the ladies and gents who run businesses but as far as just people living, that wave is coming.

      There are always about 5-10 dive instructors living there etc… That said, private property is starting to move a bit and houses are being built; I plan on building mine later this winter.

      You’ll never know unless you go and I just love it.

      If you want more info, msg Dolphin Dive and talk to Adam. Also tell him Rob from SHABL referred you, he’s an island friend of mine. Oh yeah, just saw some photos of hammerheads they saw diving, cool stuff.

      Safe travels CJ!
