The country's principal port on the Pacific Ocean, Corinto is located in sheltered Corinto Bay, which lies at the southeastern end of low-lying Aserradores (Punta Icaco) Island, connected by bridges with the mainland. It is the main port of entry for passengers and cargo bound for Nicaragua, and it handles most of the country's exports.
The word 'Corinto' from Puerto Corinto means friendly people, a nice town and a safe natural port offering an authentic experience of the country. The beaches in Corinto are very beautiful and often very desolate. However if you like to play soccer you should find the spot where the locals hang out. The locals play soccer on the beach almost every day.
