Corinto was the port of call on my second and subsequent visits to Nicaragua. The main port in Nicaragua, Corinto was the main entry point for imports. What was evident was the absence of trade of any kind, thanks to the US led embargo. Corinto was much larger and much less personal and friendly than San Juan del Sur. The only thing notable was the nice white beach, protected from the Pacific by a man made breakwater. I spent many a time both on the beach, and in the water, looking across the expense of the Pacific, pondering over how far I was from home.
