There is a separate forum for Corn Island. But before you ask over there, have a look at the reviews, of which there are plenty.

There are also two Corn Islands - Big and Little.

Both have their pluses/minuses.

If you like it very quiet - Little Corn is for you.

If you like it a bit more 'real' go for Big Corn. On Big Corn I'd recommend Arenas ($75-85) - on the southern end with a wide white sand and calm beach. The hotel itself isn't luxurious by any means but out there it is the 2nd best hotel with the best swimming beach.

Casa Canada has the most luxurious hotel (~$100+) hands down of either island. Each room is a separate cabana style with most 1st world luxuries. There is an infiniti pool which provides really great views. The drawback is there is no beach to swim at right there. There is a beach you can get to in ~10 minutes - Long Beach (I believe) there is no developments along the beach, a dirt road does travel alongside it. The waves are rough but it is swimmable. It looks like Hawaii.

On the north end there are a multitude of huts you can rent (<$20), they are very basic but doable. On the north end you'll get relatively calm water with reef - talk to Dorsey Campbell for a snorkel tour - he'll take you around. Next door ask Chester in his little pupleria if his wife can cook you up some just caught fish - tis delicious.
