Nicaragua News July 2016

Dear Readers,

It’s been quite a month. We’ve had a lot going lately, both at Gran Pacifica and in Nicaragua in general. But that’s nothing new. Gran Pacifica and Nicaragua have a long history of progress and making improvements. Take, for example, the new highway that was just opened going from Managua to the northern border town of El Guasale. This road will allow heavy vehicles to travel easier between these two cities and intersecting towns, cutting transportation costs and making business in Nicaragua cheaper and more efficient. If you want to get involved in doing business in Nicaragua, especially if it involves real estate, you’ll want to get ahead of the curve and become involved now.

Nicaragua’s capital, Managua, is also seeing a wave of new improvements. Probably the most notable is that the bus system of the city, traditionally rather confusing, has finally been mapped out! This is a huge improvement. In addition, one of Managua’s incredibly modern hospitals, the Hospital Militar Dr. Alejandro Dávila Bolaños, is investing more into upgrades to make it even more modern. An array of solar panels is being installed on the roof, which will provide the entire hot water demand for the building, as well as provide air conditioning to several parts of the hospital.

At Gran Pacifica, we’re making just as much progress as the country as a whole. We recently established a nursery, which will have available a wide variety of palms, flowers, bushes and a whole array of other plants to allow residents to make their already beautiful homes even more beautiful. And of course, the teak saplings continue to grow, with 6 hectares planted and loving the rains of the green season. Another 6 hectares will be planted by the end of the year.

These are just some of the many improvements that have been happening right now. This country really is taking off; I can only image where it will be 5, 10 and even 20 years from now. What I do know is this; I’m happy I got in at the beginning of the curve. But it’s still early for people looking to get in front of the development wave.

Finally, we’ve got an article for you about traveling in Nicaragua with kids. This article is one I can really resonate with, having raised my two daughters in Nicaragua and traveled all over the country with them. It really is a great country to bring kids to visit. Between the natural beauty, the friendly people, and the multitude of family friendly activities, Nicaragua really should be your next family vacation destination. Come check out the glowing red hot lava. We did last week and it’s incredible.

Nicaragua is making a lot of progress. You’ll have to come here for yourself to really see all that progress, however. If you’d like to explore this beautiful, intriguing and always growing country, contact me below. You won’t be disappointed.

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."
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
