Little Corn Island, Nicaragua: The trail on the Casa Iguana Grounds.

Today we are heading over to Corn Island to check out to see what there is to see over there.  We will take the afternoon boat (3:00 PM) so we don't have to rush to take the 7AM boat over.  

We go to have beakfast at Casa Iguana so we can talk about settling up our bill for our stay.  I have French Toast which is, of course, on coconut bread and that is very delicious.  We settle up our bill for our meals and drinks and some t-shirts.  Then we go pack up our bags so we can check out of our room and then store the bags in the Casa Iguana lodge till we depart for Corn Island.  It is sad leaving our little casita.

We head over to the village to see if we can get some coconut bread to bring with us.

Little Corn Island, Nicaragua: A side trail in the village, on our way to buy some coconut bread at a house.
  We find that the coconut bread boy does not have any bread today but that we can find it at a house behind where the dive shop is.  We stop by that house and they say they don't have any today but that we should try "the green house just down the trail over there"  we head over there and there area some men hanging out outside in the shade and we ask them if they know where the bread is sold.   One of them says that he has it so he brings us over to his house and he sells us some for about a dollar a loaf.  We get two because we know it is so good (and it is, this is good bead too).

 We hang out on the Casa Iguana beach till we have to go over and take the ferry.  Our bags will be carried over by the hotel and brough to the pier where the boat leaves from.

Little Corn Island Nicaragua: The water taxi laving Little Corn Island.
  We head over a little early hoping to find a late lunch before we get on the water taxi.  We are lucky and find the Empanada Man (George) who has the best empanadas on the island.  He walks around the island selling homemade empanadas out of a tupperware tub.  They are really good.  We have gotten them before for tasty snacks.  Today he has a girl with him who is selling banana cake.  We get a couple of these too and they are also very good.  The empanadas and cake are 50 cents each and great deal. 

The boat arrives on time and and everyone gets on.  It is no too full of a boat today so it is not so bad.  We select our seats toward the back of the boat so if it is big waves we will have a more comfortable ride.  Not to worry though because we are going with the waves and they are not nearly as big as they were on our way to the island.  It is a pleasant ride over to Corn Island over the caribbean waters....................
