Yemaya, Little Corn Island

The triangular sails fill and your yacht heels over before the freshening wind. Looking over the side, you can see the boat’s shadow flitting across the seabed metres beneath you, through the crystal clear water. Multi-coloured fish dart away from your bows. Towering palms wave to you from the edge of the white beach. Not bad, for a Tuesday morning.

As part of a tailor-made holiday to Nicaragua, Yemana makes the perfect break-within-a-break; allowing you to laze on an empty beach, swim over colourful coral reefs, be pampered to the limits of indulgence in an exclusive spa and dine on fresh seafood and organic produce from the hotel’s own garden. Sight-seeing and experiencing the culture of Nicaragua’s towns is always great, but sometimes doing nothing is even better.
