Dear Readers,

Welcome to another edition of the Nicaragua Insider, bringing you exciting developments from Gran Pacifica and the rest of the country. In this issue, you will read about three great nights spent at Gran Pacifica by the writers of “Panama Dude,” who told us they will absolutely be back. It’s always great to have experienced travelers and expats tell us what sets Gran Pacifica apart from other developments, such as community, first-world infrastructure, and amenities. Nicaragua as a whole has been improving its infrastructure by leaps and bounds, and we have highlighted here some of the largest projects. Nicaragua has long planned to use its expansion of renewable energy to begin supplying electricity to other countries in the region, and will be aiding Bolivia in harnessing its own geothermal energy.

The IMF completed its mission to Nicaragua, with positive results. They observed what we here on the ground have been seeing every day; one of the fastest growing economies in the region, increased access to credit, and commendable monetary management. Nicaragua really is a success story, and the article below makes a strong case for why Nicaragua is the place to be for savvy investors. From gender equality, to renewable energy, to being the safest country in the region, Nicaragua is rising with seemingly unstoppable momentum.

You are right for being interested in the country, and I hope to welcome you to the neighborhood in the near future. As an investment, a home, and a vacation destination, Gran Pacifica offers a great opportunity to establish yourself in Nicaragua before real estate prices rise to meet the country’s potential. You’ve been seeing the signs, the increased attention, the celebrities and billionaires coming to Nicaragua. Join this exclusive club and see what they know that you may be missing. Contact me directly, and I will be happy to help you find what you’re looking for.

"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
