Feb 11: Little Corn Island
Despite my lack of energy, fever and constant headache- I might have been bitten by some mean insect- I want to move to Little Corn Island. Since there's no ATM there we go to the bank first but again I can't change my travelers checks, so i would suggest the NY banker that recommended them to me to take a break from his desk and go and try himself.
At 10 we are on a completely full panga: make sure to show up at least an hour before to have a seat. There's no roof on the pangha so rain or shine is all on your head and we got them both! Luckily is just a 30 min ride.
There are no cars on Little Corn, only pedestrian paths thru town or thru vegetation but the island is pretty small so this is not a big unconvenience. After 10 min walk from the dock on the west side of the island at Elsa's we find a basic cabana right on the beach with ocean view and private bath for $20. The island tends to fill up so it wouldn't be a bad idea to book in advance just to be sure but i dont think these beach huts work much with Internet!
In the pm I had to visit the local clinic: there's no doctor on the island but just a nice nurse that took care of me giving me antibiotics for something that is still not clear to me but I guess it's ok because I felt better after!
Dinner at Cafe Desiderio, italian run place, in front of the ocean, wifi included, delicious food: Recommended!
