Discover Mosquito Coast

In the East, Mosquito Coast lines the Caribbean sea. There, you will find swamps, beaches and numerous little harbours. The most famous one being Bluefields with its small airport. You will board a boat and sail to the magnificent Islas del Maiz. Located 30 miles off the coast, these two islands have good quality hotels. They attract tourists as well as local holiday-makers. Surfing, fishing and swimming at the beaches (by the way unique in Nicaragua for their beauty) is enough to make everyone happy.

Being a migrating species, loggerhead sea turtles can be found just as easily in the Caribbean as in the Pacific Ocean. However, its long journeys make it particularly prey to fishing nets.
