Nicaragua: What are you Crazy?

Check out the quotes from a recent Fox News article.

"Isn't Nicaragua really dangerous?" one woman asked me. "Are you crazy? You could get attacked, or kidnapped" said another, after learning I was headed to the Central American country for a visit.

Or how about this?

"I'm so surprised. I didn't know what to expect here," said Elsie Freeting, who was visiting from Canada. Freeting's husband Jim agreed. "My friends all thought I was crazy to come here, but I wanted to see it. Now I wish we could stay here longer."


Neither of these is unusual for me to hear. Both the before and after statements. Nicaragua is such an over deliverer when it comes to an actual experience. The Fox News article really helps explain why visiting Nicaragua may is the best investment you’ll make this year. Seeing is believing.

Visiting Nicaragua Is a Great Idea

I’m writing this blog as I sit flying from Phoenix back to Managua where I spoke to 150 folks considering a move overseas. In fact, this morning, one of the attendees, Bob was at the dining room getting coffee as I was eating breakfast and sat down to chat for a minute. Nicaragua wasn’t even on his radar screen 4 days ago and now it’s one of the 2 countries he’s considering. Incredible what a dose of the facts can do to misperceptions and lingering reputations.

If you are considering property ownership overseas, put Nicaragua on your list. Not doing so is doing yourself a huge disservice. Unless you see this country, you wont believe just how wonderful it is. Ultimately, you may or may not decide that owning property in Nicaragua is right for you, but you’ll always be glad you made the visit, just like Elsie above.
