After we wrapped the El Camino trip, my co-founder + our babes hopped over to the Corn Islands off the coast of Nicaragua on the Caribbean side. The best way to get there is to fly from Managua to Big Corn on La Costeña.The Corn Islands are comprised of Big Corn and Little Corn. We stayed on Big Corn at Paraiso Club and hopped over to Little Corn for the day. If you are planning a visit, I suggest staying on Little Corn as it's a bit more quaint but be prepared for a rough boat ride from Big Corn if the sea is choppy. Let's just say I was planning my escape plan should the boat flip over. Want to learn more about the Corn Islands? Check out this article.
What an amazing trip. Can't wait to go back in March.
The next stop on our El Camino trip was the colonial town of Granada where we relaxed at Tribal Hotel, learned how to roll cigars, and shopped local crafts at Masaya Market. In addition, we collaborated with the vivacious ladies of Tinsel & Twine to organize an unforgettable dinner that honored local social entrepreneurs Carla Estrada and Sonia Diaz of Grid Alternatives. 10% of our profits went to the cause.
If you've been following my blog, you know that this past summer I co-launched a travel company called El Camino with this girl below (Katalina Mayorga). El Camino is a travel company that curates off-beat experiences for groups of 10-12 people to unique locations. The trips all come with a creative photographer in tow, so that travelers can thoroughly enjoy the experiences. In addition, 10% of profits are donated to a local social entrepreneur who is trying to change the country. We wrapped our inaugural trip to Nicaragua this past November with eleven amazing travelers. Travelers arrived at Maderas Village just outside of San Juan Del Sur to find themselves in lush treehouse type lodging among the canopy and howler monkeys. We spent 4 nights here where we surfed Maderas Beach, chowed on tacos, went on a catamaran tour, swam to deserted beaches, and learned how to fish the local way.
