27th August

We will meet you at the dock and bring you to the hotel where you can check in and drop off your luggage. Then we will head out to meet the parade (make sure to bring your camera!) and watch the floats and dance groups go by on their way to the park in Sally Peachy.


Once there you will have the opportunity to watch the dance groups and singers perform on stage, see the kids scramble up the greasy pole, try various costeña dishes and of course, the famous crab soup! In the afternoon we will visit Corn Islands’ home of history, the Culture House where you can find out about the island from the days its indigenous inhabitants to its time as a pirate haven to modern day.

We will then return to the hotel where you can watch the sunset from the beach, catch a quick snorkel session before dark or rest before dinner and going out.

Have breakfast and one last swim before saying goodbye to the Corn Islands. But be careful, it is said that whoever swims in the Corn Island sea is destined to return!
