Dear Readers,

Check this out. An article recently published by Realty Biz News, titled Foreign Nationals Investing in Nicaragua Real Estate in Record Numbers says:

“Not only are the laws agreeable for foreign investors, but Nicaragua is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the region. As the country continues to grow economically, Nicaraguan real estate is becoming the new gold!”

You’ve been hearing the inside scoop from me for years about the amazing opportunity that is investing in Nicaraguan real estate. And now mainstream media groups are catching on to this opportunity too! This is great news for you if you have invested already! It really confirms what you’ve been hearing from me all these years.

However, the flip side is that the secret is finally getting out! You’ve had the opportunity to take advantage of a growing trend these past few years – to get in ahead of the crowd. Now the crowd is coming. For those who are already invested in Nicaragua, this means huge returns. For those who haven’t invested yet, the window of opportunity to get in before the crowds is rapidly closing. You’ll want to take advantage of this situation before the prices increase dramatically.

Life continues to improve here in Nicaragua. Tourism revenue is up 10% from last year. The economy grew 5%. In addition, the Nicaraguan government recently secured funding to complete a major highway project in Managua, which will seriously alleviate traffic and congestion in the capital. Closer to Gran Pacifica, progress continues on the final stretch of road to the resort. Paving of the road to the Roberto Clemente Clinic III is also nearing completion. And this past month, the clinic hosted some of its first dental and medical missions!

We were very happy to work with Travel To Do Good and Help Them Help Themselves during the month of March to bring a medical mission down to Nicaragua (and I’d like to send out a special thanks as well to Osman Picado, Angela Smetana and Dr. Andrea Martinez for all the work they put in to make our recent Corporate Social Responsibility projects possible).

This past month’s medical mission was the first to utilize the Roberto Clemente Clinic III, located just outside of Gran Pacifica Resort and on land donated by the resort. Hundreds of local villagers were helped during this medical mission and all the volunteers’ lives were touched. It was a huge success!

Life just continues to improve here in Nicaragua and at Gran Pacifica. You’ll want to get involved now, if you’re not already. You’ll be glad you did!

Until next time,

"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."

"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."
