Nicaragua’s beaches among the world’s 100 best

A recent article published by CNN placed the beaches of Nicaragua’s Little Corn Island among the 100 best in the world. Little Corn Island, located nearly 44 miles off Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast, is an island of approximate one square mile and ideal for “those looking for a few days of rustic, five-star-free living.”

According to the article, the beaches at Little Corn Island are “low key, undeveloped and languid”, making it a perfect destination for tourist seeking a laid-back, relaxed vacation. For tourist looking for some adventure, the island is also a “great spot for diving and snorkeling.”

Getting to Little Corn Island is relatively easy; tourist can take a one hour flight from Nicaragua’s capital (Managua) to Corn Island and then take a boat ride of approximately 7 miles.

It’s natural beauty, public safety and low cost of living are some of the factors that have helped transform Nicaragua into a highly rated tourism and retirement destination. The country has been recently highlighted in this regard in renowned international publications such as the New York Times, the Huffington Post, International Living, U.S. News and AARP Magazine. In fact, in January 2013, the New York Times rated Nicaragua as number 3 on its list of 46 places to visit this year.

Tourism has been one of the most dynamic economic sectors in Nicaragua, becoming one of the country’s main sources of revenues. According to statistics provided by the Nicaraguan Tourism Board (INTUR, for its acronym in Spanish) in 2012, Nicaragua received 1,179,581 tourist arrivals and US$422 million in revenues, a growth of 11.3 percent and 11.5 percent, respectively. In terms of regions, the main source markets for tourism were Central America (65 percent), North America (24 percent) and Europe (7 percent).
