Discover Mosquito Coast Nicaragua

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.

    Traditional fishing boats

    The fishermen on Corn Island use 'pangas' to go out to sea. These are not to be confused with the panga fish, which is farmed in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam.
