After a relaxing day spent poolside, enjoying the spa, or catching some rays on your spacious private terrace, head out on a guided afternoon paddle through the scenic isletas to enjoy sightings of a diverse array of bird and animal life and soak in the views of majestic Mombacho in the distance, before you watch the sun set over Lake Nicaragua.

This morning, set out to enjoy some of the very best of what the Corn Islands have to offer - crystalline Caribbean waters, gorgeous island views, and a diverse array of undersea life - as you glide along the coastline in a 40-foot handcrafted sailboat, captained by indigenous Miskito sailors. Enjoy the best snorkeling on the island, then relax on deck with a juicy wedge of watermelon and a cold drink as you sail back to Yemaya.
