CNBC ran an article last week naming Nicaragua as one of 5 great locations for a value vacation. In good company with Argentina, Poland, Iceland and Indonesia, Nicaragua continues to impress those folks willing to set aside preconceived notions and hit the ground with fresh eyes and an open mind.

Story after story in magazines and newspapers, positive reports from NGO's, governments, and the World Bank continue to show Nicaragua as a safe, warm and welcoming country for visitors and investors alike. And as far as value for the dollar goes, Nicaragua is a real winner as this article in CNBC states.

Real Estate in Nicaragua – An Exceptional Value Too

If you are thinking about real estate in Nicaragua, do so soon. As perceptions change prices will move up to close the artificial gap caused by an information arbitrage.

Take a look at the CNBC article and be in touch if visiting Nicaragua or owning property in Nicaragua is of interest. The country continues to impress visitors and investors alike and if you’ll give it a chance too, you’ll be glad you did.
