Dinner Logistics:

Dietary restrictions: We are happy to accommodate dietary restrictions, advanced notice is greatly appreciated!
Preferences/substitutions: we ask you to expand your horizons and try something new! Little Corn is very remote.

Lobster: Lobster on Little Corn Island is reason enough to come visit. Casa Iguana does not currently serve whole tails or whole lobster in order to support our local business neighbors who do. Ask our staff for a recommendation!

Other Dining Recommendations:
Visiting the rest of the island and trying the local food is a must during your stay. Ask our staff for a recommendation of good places to have lunch or dinner. Keep in mind that Little Corn is VERY remote. Everyone on the island makes an effort to grow things locally and consolidate food deliveries directly from Managua to keep quality high and costs down.
