First Visit to the Corn Islands | Professional Sabbatical

…We spent most of our time at Southwest Beach, near the Arenas hotel. The other main beach is called Long Beach and has larger waves, but it said to be rockier and is also more desolate.  Southwest beach offers a few places to grab some food and drinks.

Southwest Beach on Corn Island

We went snorkeling on the reefs right outside Ike’s place. The reefs were a little shallow for my liking, so I headed in after seeing a few cool fish, but a few of the boys stayed out there and said they saw some awesome fish.

Great snorkeling!
