Hotel Bellavista Corn Islands
Hotel BELLAVISTA is the winner of Tripadvisor's Travellers' Choice™ 2013 award.
Hotel BELLAVISTA welcomes you on Corn Island in Nicaragua, the forgotten tropical paradise in the Caribbean. Only 50 miles northeast of the mainland are the two tiny Corn Islands located. The Big Corn Island and the Little Corn Island are the last secrets of the Caribbean. The deserted beaches, family-owned hotels and bed and breakfasts, surrounded by exotic fruit trees and palms, are visited by only a few adventures travellers.
Already in the 17th century pirates from all over the Caribbean discovered the Corn Islands. 300 years later the first tourists managed to arrive here on this lonely spot of Nicaragua. Today you can dive the history of this paradise by discovering a 400 year old Spanish galeon which drowned just a few meters away from the beach. The canons are still in good shape and an anchor is lying only 14 feet down on the ground of the Caribbean sea. The reefs around the Corn Islands are stunning. Rich in tropical fish and corals you can find good snorkeling spots close to the beach or just find yourself on one of the white sanded beaches and enjoy the clear turquoise water.
Nowadays the locals live from catching and selling fresh fish but tourism is growing and some of them take already good care, ones you are arriving here. The Islands are developing slowly and with them our Hotel BELLAVISTA: Giorgio and Teresa are the protagonists of this tiny business. Originally from Italy they are already 20 years on Big Corn Island and they welcome you warmly to their beautiful caribbean-styled hotel which feels, like being home.
The Hotel BELLAVISTA on the Corn Islands is located only 10 meters away from the beach of Brig Bay 2 (Playa Shipwreck). Six beautiful beach rooms in the typical caribbean style can accommodate up to 14 people. Furthermore we have one private Seaview Suite for up to four guests.

Tripadvisor-Review Restaurant BELLAVISTA:
"Although we are not staying at Hotel BELLAVISTA, my family and I just had the most amazing dinner hosted by Giorgio and Teresa. The Lobster Spaghetti was unbelievable. Then to top it off.. dessert was chocolate cake with custard drizzled over it and then a shot of dark rum poured over it."
