From there we will get on our private Gracious Living panga boat for 30 min through the ocean to get to Little Corn Island, our beautiful destination for the next 6 nights and 7 days. This place is like nothing you have ever imagined…think 5 star tropical jungle chic!


The casitas are beautifully built with private deck facing the ocean and sleeping 4 comfortably (2 singles beds, and 1 massive king size bed). Each has its own bathroom with semi-outdoor shower with hot water.
