Nicaragua News June 2016

Dear Readers,

As we settle in to the green season here in Nicaragua, it is hard to believe that the year is almost halfway over. It's also incredible to think of how much has happened in just six months! When we first started construction on Gran Pacifica over a decade ago, it was with the belief that Nicaragua was truly "on its way up."

The accelerating pace of development and continued exciting news out of this Central American country serve to prove that ECI came to the right place at the right time. It also shows that people like you are focused in on exactly the right country. Foresight like yours stands to be rewarded, but only if you turn that interest into action and get your boots on the ground.

Some people still worry about traveling to Nicaragua, which is understandable if they are only aware of Nicaragua's distant revolutionary history. But the reality of today is quite different. Highlighting the difference between that perception and the on-the-ground reality, we lead off with an article focused on traveling to Nicaragua with small children. As someone who raised his own children here in Nicaragua, I can definitely relate to a lot of the excellent points in the article.

As you read through the other articles, you may think, "Wait, this is all happening in Nicaragua?" That's because we are talking about "Nobel Prizes for Water," sustainable energy, first-world banking technology, streamlined business registration, superior gender equality, and singular tourist attractions. Now that's a heck of a month of positive news for Nicaragua.

What that means is that if this is the only newsletter you ever read about Nicaragua, you'll walk away knowing that you can visit a volcano that has literally no equal in the world, secure in the knowledge that the women around you probably have greater equity than the women in many parts of your home country. If you decide to stay, you'll know how easy it is to open a business, and that your young children will be both safe and happy in Nicaragua. There's also a much greater chance that your power will be coming from renewable sources.

What has me so excited is that this isn't a factbook about Nicaragua, it's just one month's news. I look forward to seeing you in this beautiful and booming part of the world sooner than later, and would love the chance to share my experience with you. Visit. You'll be glad that you did.

Until Next time,

Michael Cobb

"Michael Cobb, you have truly brought ethical behavior to an elevated level.  Nine years ago when I was negotiating with you on lot 84A I asked about the houses in the area in front of us and you replied we were the first lots in our area that were permitted to have two stories . That was important to Tom and I as we wanted to preserve our view. Last year when the lot across the street was resold and building plans started, I asked Kent Payne to check and see that only a one story house was allowed on the lot. To my surprise, this was not the case. I prayed they would not build a two story house. Yesterday Tom was informed by Kent that as the house plans on the lot across were of the two story variety, you had offered to trade their lot for a more expensive and valuable lot in order to honor your word! The Cinco Amigos thank you for your ethics in a country in which many other developers have taken the easy way to their own destruction and to the harm of many others. You have raised the bar and we all appreciate your honor. I am proud to be associated with Gran Pacifica and with you."
Connie Orlandini, Gran Pacifica Property Owner


"ECI is just a solid, wholesome company. You meet the founders, and the people, and they're just happy. You know anything Mike Cobb tells you, you can take to the bank. It's like your brother telling you, or even better. This is my first trip to Gran Pacifica, and it just feels like home the moment you get here. Very comfortable, just like old time United States. It has the sense of community that people lost in the US, and I think that's the most important thing. You really can't put a dollar value on it, but you know it when you see it, and it's here.

Coming from a construction background, I can see that everything here is built to last, and there are a lot of little details that were thought of. Looking at the growth here, it really seems to be a solid investment, and it's also just such a great atmosphere. It's hard to put words to. It's really the whole mix of things, trustworthy, common sense people, great climate, real community, and sensible growth. Mike Cobb is a person with a dream, and he's really making that dream happen here. That's something you don't find every day."
John Fultz, ECI Shareholder
