Nicaragua Newsletter March 2017



Dear Readers,

Because you receive our monthly newsletter, you get regular updates on Nicaragua. However, you’ve probably been hearing a lot of positive news about Nicaragua lately from other sources as well.

The internationally-renowned publication, The Economist, recently ran a story on Nicaragua, telling of its many great features as a vacation and retirement destination.

And in the social media sphere, Nicaragua made news this past month when famous actress Bonnie Francesca Teague Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter series, was spotted in the Rivas area catching some waves.

You’ve been hearing for years from us how Nicaragua is an up-and-coming country. Well, here’s the proof. Nicaragua is continuously attracting a greater share of the spotlight, and this exposure will only continue to increase. For those who have already invested in real estate here, this means very good returns on those investments. For those who haven’t invested yet, this may be your final opportunity to get in before the masses.

Beyond being a media darling, Nicaragua is an all around great place to live. It’s a country full of culture, showcased by the International Poetry Festival held every year in Granada. And it has great schooling for expats. I personally put my two daughters through school here in Nicaragua, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

While Nicaragua grows, so does Gran Pacifica. We are embarking on two new phases: the expansion of the Las Perlas condominiums, and opening up sales of homes in our new Santa Barbara neighborhood. Get in contact with me today to find out more, or even better, book a trip down here to see for yourself.

Nicaragua is becoming a hotspot for tourists and retirees. You’ll want to get in before the crowds do.

Until next time,






Michael Cobb

"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."
