Like every country, Nicaragua has been impacted by the viral pandemic. Unlike most countries though, Nicaragua has chosen to remain open while encouraging businesses and individuals to practice prudent health practices. Wash your hands, maintain social distancing, wear a mask and generally take care of yourself and be aware of your friends and neighbors health and how your behavior can impact it.
Recently, some airlines have begun to fly to and from the International Airport in Managua. Tourism is gradually returning to Nicaragua. Close to the airport is a Covid testing center that provides same day results in an efficient and orderly manner for international travelers who need a test to travel on to another country that requires testing.
Good news too, if you have two vaccinations of the most popular vaccines, you only need to provide proof to enter Nicaragua. A test is only needed to enter if you can not provide the needed proof of vaccination.
Other than a dramatic drop (now rebounding dramatically) in tourism and its related stress that has been placed on the people of the islands, island life has been largely carrying on the same.
The Corn Islands have been especially blessed since almost everything is outside and have been relatively unimpacted by the consequences from getting to “live outdoors”. Many Nicaraguans and the majority of Little Corn Islanders have had two or more vaccination shots as well.
For tourists in these odd times, the Corn Islands and Little Corn Island Nicaragua especially may be one of the best places in the world to “get away from it all”.
We know you deserve a break . . . we hope you come take one here on our beautiful remote tropical island. 🙂
To provide some perspective, please see the chart below. Homicide statistics for U.S. cities and other countries with a population of 250,000 or greater are provided and rates are based on cases per 100,000 people for all of calendar year 2014. Things have stayed the same since. Nicaragua is a safe, convenient and welcoming country to visit.
We hope to see you here. If you like remote tropical islands and quiet third world travel experiences we believe you can find that now, as always, on Little Corn Island in Carribean Nicaragua.
