Hop, skip and jump!

STEP 1: ARRIVING TO MANAGUA

Several international airlines fly to Managua including United, Delta, American Airlines, Copa, AeroMexico, Spirit, Avianca, and Veca.

STEP 2: FLY TO BIG CORN ISLAND

Flights from Managua to Big Corn Island are operated by La Costeña airline, which is right next to the Managua Airport (Augusto C. Sandino International Airport). When you exit the Managua Airport doors, turn left and walk to the end of the airport, and you will see the La Costeña terminal. (5 minute walk). You can book your La Costeña flights online www.lacostena.com.ni or via a phone call +505 2298 5360. You can ask for an English speaking assistant. If you have any issues please contact us at reservations.yemaya@colibriboutiquehotels.com and we can assist you with this process. Return flights cost $170 USD per person and are non-refundable. Date changes cost $30 USD per ticket.

Your flight ticket price does not include airport taxes ($10 USD per person), which can be paid directly at La Costeña’s check in area. It is advised that you make reservations in advance, as seats can be limited at last minute (especially during busy periods). Please note that you can only take 30 lbs of checked luggage and a single carry-on with you. More than this will incur a charge of $1.20 USD per additional pound.

Flights currently run 2-3 times daily from Managua. Please be aware that flights from Managua sometimes stop on the way to Big Corn Island at Bluefields airport for 10 to 15 minutes to let passengers on or off.

PLEASE NOTE: We suggest booking the afternoon flight from Managua to Big Corn Island, so you can be checked straight into your room when you arrive on the island.

STEP 3: BOAT TO LITTLE CORN ISLAND

Once you land on Big Corn Island, you will see taxis waiting outside the little arrival area. They will take you to the public wharf for $60 cordobas which is $2 USD. From the wharf, you can wait for the public panga (a big open boat that seats up to 30 guests in pretty cramped seats) to leave for the Little Corn Island town dock ($10 USD per person). From the Little Corn town dock we can arrange to meet you and take you across to Yemaya, but you must contact us with your travel details. This boat ride takes about 10 min and it is included in your room rate. PLEASE NOTE: This trip in the public panga can be cancelled due to bad weather. The ride can be bumpy with the chance of getting wet depending on the sea conditions, so please be prepared for this.
