Nicaragua is the Heart of the World’s Biodiversity

Here is a simple fact that many people don’t know: Nicaragua possesses more than 7% of the world’s biodiversity. The country is quite simply an oasis that is incredibly rich in natural life and beauty within its amazing coastal and marine habitats and its expanse of tropical rain forest, which is the largest remaining in Central America. As a result, Nicaragua is considered to possess outstanding potential for environmental preservation and sustainable development.

While unfortunately known more for its history of political conflict, Nicaragua is Central America’s melting pot for species due to its role as the land bridge between the Americas. The country’s land features are extremely diverse, including rain forests, rugged mountains, active volcanoes, lowland forests, coastal mangroves and coral reefs. Both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea brush Nicaragua’s lengthy coasts, while the interior features numerous bodies of water.

A lake the size of Puerto Rico?

Gigantic Lake Cocibolca (“sweet sea”), sometimes called Lake Nicaragua, is nearly 100 miles long and roughly the size of Puerto Rico. It is Central America’s largest freshwater lake, containing more than 300 islands, and the 20th largest in the world. The lake and its shoreline teem with native flora and fauna, including a unique freshwater shark.

One of the lake’s most dramatic features is Isla de Ometepe, an island comprised of two joined volcanoes—one active, one dormant. Inhabited since pre-Columbian times, the island has a rich and mythical history that still gives it a strong sense of mystery. For the adventurous, Isla de Ometepe offers an array of activities, including volcano hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking and, interestingly, surfing. The lake’s huge, flat surface receives almost constant wind that produce waves that draw surfers from around the world.

More than 9,000 plant species are found here.

Within the forests and along its shores, Nicaragua is a natural paradise in which over 9,000 plant species have been identified, with perhaps another 4,000 yet to be discovered. Living within this incredible collection of flora are more than 750 species of birds and 200 mammal species. Not to mention more than 200 species of reptiles and amphibians. Nicaragua’s natural habitats provide critical protection for creatures that are endangered or have disappeared entirely from other areas.

Preservation of the country’s natural resources is becoming more and more important within Nicaragua, particularly as ecotourism becomes a more significant economic factor. At present, the country has 76 protected regions, as well as more than 20 privately owned reserves—many of which are open to visitors. The total protected area represents nearly 20% of the country's land, providing evidence of the desire to maintain and enhance Nicaragua’s natural assets, while still fostering much-needed economic growth.

Protecting the natural environment is a primary objective of Grupo Mariana.

At Grupo Mariana, protection and preservation of the natural environment are key aspects of our development activities. To harm these wonderful settings and the creatures that inhabit them would run counter to our stated mission to support the country of Nicaragua and its people. As you watch Seaside Mariana and Isla Mariana rise, you will plainly see our commitment to the land and its inhabitants.

How Green in Nicaragua Can Be Green in Your Pocket.

Green initiatives are the wave of the future. For investors that means one thing. Green philosophy coupled with  resort living means green in the pockets of those who act early and decisively.  Grupo Mariana plans to identify the geographic and topographic features that are unique to all our projects in order to preserve the ecological and biological resources found within.

As Green projects move rapidly to the forefront of the luxury development industry, investors are allocating their funds in increasingly large quantities to such developments. Those who have invested in Grupo Mariana will be the natural benefactors of this large-scale emerging trend.

Grupo Mariana is perfectly positioned to seize market share in the new economy with the influx of direct foreign investment flowing into Nicaragua. With its commitment to green initiatives and team memberts from respected companies around the world, Grupo Mariana is the obvious choice for investors, developer and builders.

For enterprising individuals there are additional opportunities at Grupo Mariana. These include sub-development possibilities for up to 260 acres of ocean view land, beach and retail condos, golf villas, builder home site packages, golf course , casino operations, and a myriad of commercial options in the lifestyle center.

Understanding Nicaragua and the True Risks in Today’s Market

Posted by Kevin Fleming, Chairman of Grupo Mariana

Feb 18, 2015 12:00:00 AM

2015_Investor_Member_Program_(Blog)_III

If you are concerned about risk, Nicaragua might be the answer you have been looking for!

Precisely why that is the case is a fascinating story. Nicaragua has redefined itself over the last 20 years so that it is now becoming one of the best places to live for people looking for the next big thing. Weekly, there are over 60 flights to Nicaragua; the numbers of people visiting Nicaragua and the number of people who invest capital in the country have been on a dramatic upward trajectory. The New Nicaragua has emerged as the must see vacation destination in Central America.

Today, there is plenty of risk at home. Many of these risks are unappealing to say the least—having to endure another drab and cold winter, uncertainty about financial institutions or allowing your investments to stagnate for another year.

Living in North America, there is a good chance that many people will not get out of the rat race until it is too late to really enjoy retirement. There is a global economy and a personal economy. Luckily, in Nicaragua, your personal economy has never looked brighter. Escape high prices. Escape chores. Escape winter.

There is risk in Nicaragua, too. There is the risk you might fall in love, discover the vacations spots and the adventure of a lifetime or want to extend your stay after being exposed to the warmth of the Nicaraguan people and the vibrant culture.

A prudent way to manage risk is to select the absolute best a country has to offer. Experience a new world filled with opportunities for fun, friendship and active lifestyle! We invite you to step inside and experience our world-class community first hand.

Race the horizon by sailboat or personal watercraft... Dive below the surface for a scuba or snorkeling adventure... Get up close and personal with live whales... Learn to surf or fish the world class waters of Nicaragua... Accept the challenge - and rewards - of some of the world's best deep sea fishing... it's all yours in Nicaragua. With the vibrant colonial cities of Granada and Leon nearby, it is also possible to absorb some of the rich culture offered by this former capitol of the country.

Imagine what it could be like. No boss. Your time is 100% your own. Pursuing your recreation of choice, golf, surfing, fishing, hiking, bird watching or fine dining are just a few of the ways you can spend your time in Nicaragua – and the prices are phenomenal. Perhaps taking it easy for a day is more your cup of tea? You can relax in a hammock, tour a coffee plantation, sunbathe, get a massage or enjoy some spa treatments. Let Nicaragua be your personal oyster to open up and discover the riches within.

Grupo Mariana offers you a perfect way to balance risk. Eliminate the risk of non-participation and portfolio stagnation. Indulge in the risk of adventure, exploration and offshore investing by visiting the most enticing country in Central America.

That’s why you’ll often hear us say that if you missed your chance in Costa Rica, you should act now in Nicaragua where the outlook is extremely bright. The country is politically stable, the economy is growing steadily, and there is a welcoming attitude among the people and government. The natural setting and environmental diversity is unparalleled, and, perhaps most important, is being actively and seriously maintained.

Seaside Mariana offers you a perfect way to balance risk. Eliminate the risk of non-participation and portfolio stagnation. Indulge in the risk of adventure, exploration and investment by visiting the most enticing country in Central America.After all, you have everything to gain.

If you wish to join the forward-thinking lifestyle investors who seek both high returns and high quality of life, look no further than Seaside Mariana Oceanfront Community.

The Word Is Getting Out About Nicaragua and Isla Mariana Beachfront Retreat

Posted by Kevin Fleming, Chairman of Grupo Mariana

Aug 27, 2014 8:00:00 AM

The editors of International Living are constantly on the move in search of paradise, based on their belief and experience “that there are a host of places around the world that are cheaper, healthier, safer, freer than you ever thought possible.” And one of the places that’s high on International Living’s list is the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua.

It’s Just Like Southern California—But Much Less Expensive

In fact, numerous International Living reports have declared in no uncertain terms that Nicaragua's coastline is one of the most misunderstood, undervalued and bargain-ripe stretch of coastline in the entire world. Which sounds like a great deal of hype until you read further and consider the editor’s conclusion that Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast offers essentially the same coastal style of living found in Southern California—except much, much more affordable.

That’s right, travel a few hours south of some of the trendiest, priciest real estate in the United States to discover a place with virtually the same geography, climate, beaches, sunsets and the same Pacific Ocean. And it’s not just the cost of real estate that’s majestically cheaper, but the daily cost of living in Nicaragua is unbeatable—according to the magazine, you can live well here for less than $1,000 a month. Which means you can stretch your dollars without sacrificing amenities.

Great Values Await For Those Who Act Now

But International Living also warns that word’s getting out and prices may eventually skyrocket as they did previously in Costa Rica, Belize and Panama. In fact, the magazine states it clearly: “We believe this stretch of coastline is primed to explode onto the world stage, and that if history is any guide, real estate prices could skyrocket here as much as 500% in the next few years.”

Nicaragua also is proving to be a growing economic force, attracting hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign investment and becoming a favored destination for tourists. Nicaragua’s economic performance has been steady in recent years, with the outlook extremely positive, according to recent data from Pro Nicaragua. The country’s foreign investment have doubled in recent years and are expected to achieve that same level of growth in the future. Visitors to Nicaragua continue to top one million ayear, and a 10% increase in tourist arrivals per year is expected to continue creating a deficit in hotels rooms to meet the growing demand of travellers.

Personal safety and security always is an area of concern for visitors and investors, Nicaragua has the lowest incidence of crime in Central America, which reinforces reports and studies that have ranked the country as one of the safest in the region.

Real Estate Prices Remain Amazingly Low

On top of all this positive data is the fact that real estate prices continue to be stable and comparatively low in terms to other Central American locations. Plus, the latest incentives for retirees make the New Nicaragua one of the most conducive places in the world to call home.

Live On The Beach Now, Profit Later

If that’s enough to get your attention, dig a little deeper on your own and you’ll uncover a wealth of information and data that underscore the opportunities that await in the New Nicaragua, whether you’re looking for a lucrative investment, a great place to stretch your retirement dollars or even start a new business. As the editors of International Living put it, “You'll discover how easy and affordable it is to live right on the beach and watch the sun set over the glorious Pacific--day after day after day.”

What Excellent Resort Communities Are Made Of

When you think about an excellent beachfront community, what comes to mind?

For most people it would be pristine beachfront land maintained in impeccable condition, a wide array of amenities to enjoy and a peaceful place to relax with family where security is never a concern.  Isla Mariana Beachfront Retreat is in the process of delivering all this and more.

Isla Mariana already features the privacy and security of island living; 11 kilometers of unspoiled sandy beachfront; a very high percentage of true beachfront home sites with freehold title; planned installation of water and electrical to the edge of the lands; full development and environment permits in place and a unique riverfront setting perfect for a recreational marina  and all kinds of water sports including rowing, sailing, waterskiing, fishing and more.

On the island or within a couple hours drive from the island one will find adventure activities such as surfing, snorkeling, diving; sport fishing, water skiing, kayaking, nature walks, canopying, air ballooning, trekking, volcano skiing and world class golf.  

Isla Mariana Beachfront Retreat truly is a unique and special place. In fact, International Living, an organization familiar with property spanning the entire globe, had this to say about Isla Mariana:

"The wide, sandy beach at Isla Mariana is unique in Nicaragua.  We’ve spent a considerable amount of time traveling up and down this coast, and most oceanfront projects that we’ve seen have the majority of their home sites on a hillside or cliff, with an onsite swimming beach (or several). Not so at Isla Mariana, on Nicaragua’s north-central coast near the city of León.  This property is right on the sand of a wide, gently sloping beach that extends from one end of the project to the other.  Every one of their remaining beachfront lots is true ‘beachfront’.  In other words, you can walk out your front door right onto the sand and into the warm surf.”

Beachfront Property for Under USD $40,000

Have you ever wanted to own direct beachfront property? We’re not talking about ocean view property, or property 1 block from the beach. We’re talking about absolute beachfront property. This is stepping off your balcony into the soft sand with the beach stretched out before you, extending for miles in both directions. This is as good as it gets.  

And now you can own direct beachfront property for under USD $40,000. Yes, that’s right. You can actually own feet-in-the-sand absolute beachfront property for under USD $40,000. If you have ever thought that owning a piece of direct beachfront property was out of reach, not anymore.

These beautiful beachfront home sites are on a small island, with all the privacy and security of an island, yet they are accessible both by road and by boat. A beautiful river runs behind the property offering calm waters perfect for the marina that is in the planning stages. Those who know the Nicaraguan coastline know that marinas are rare, which makes the land that much more valuable.  The island location offers safety and exclusivity not found elsewhere. The biological diversity offers nature at its finest, which Isla Mariana is dedicated to preserving and protecting.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to own direct beachfront property, you do not have to wonder any longer. A high quality lifestyle at a fraction of the price is yours for the taking. The wide, soft sand beach and gentle waves will sooth even the most stressed. Replace work and cold winters with sunshine and relaxation. Explore miles of pristine beach or ride a horse to the quaint town of Salinas Grandes for a delicious meal. Spend the afternoon paddling down the peaceful river enjoying the natural wonders that are plentiful in this protected area.  Enjoy freshly caught fish and starry nights unclouded by city lights. This sumptuous lifestyle can be yours.    

We have additional news coming in the next few months – Isla Mariana is attracting a new Partner to the beachfront retreat, so the potential return on an investment at Isla Mariana will skyrocketed! Don’t delay… these beachfront home sites will go fast!

Always remember, every purchase through goes back to the greater good. Your purchase will send 5% of the total sales price toward achieving our fundraising goal at Fundacion Grupo Mariana.

To learn more about Beachfront Home Sites at Isla Mariana, register here to download our E-Brochure and join our mailing list. We’ll share new releases, investment opportunities, and most importantly, how you can enjoy a beachfront lifestyle that features the best of Nicaragua!

Isla Mariana is a hidden gem. We feel extremely fortunate to have found this secluded island paradise that we fell in love with at first sight, as have our owners and investors. This hidden gem will emerge as one of the jewels of Nicaragua.

Grupo Mariana Announces Phase Two Release of Beachfront Home Sites at Isla Mariana Beachfront Retreat in Nicaragua

Posted by Kevin Fleming, Chairman of Grupo Mariana

Jul 7, 2014 2:54:00 AM

A Rare Opportunity to Own Beachfront Real Estate

In the continued tradition of delivering Nicaraguan real estate to the world, Grupo Mariana has developed Isla Mariana, our exclusive beachfront retreat designed to meet the needs of individuals looking to invest, retire or live in Nicaragua.

Investors and adventurers seeking an international opportunity and lifestyle now have inviting new options as Isla Mariana releases its remaining beachfront home sites in its 17-acre Isla Mariana Beachfront Retreat situated along 1.5 kilometers of pristine beach on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast. Isla Mariana is being developed by Grupo Mariana, led by Mr. Kevin Fleming, with ten years of business experience in Nicaragua.

Canadian Kevin Fleming was introduced to the country of Nicaragua by his wife, a native Nicaraguan, and immediately was amazed by the beauty, culture, people and opportunity he found there. After moving there in 2004, he and Maria, his wife, have dedicated their efforts to entrepreneurial projects, with an emphasis on beachfront real estate development to bring visitors and investors to Nicaragua.

“These beachfront home sites offer an extremely affordable option for individuals and investors who would like to be in an exclusive area close to amenities,” says Kevin Fleming, Chairman of Grupo Mariana. “The properties are freehold title and ideally sized to meet a range of needs and price points.”

Grupo Mariana has assembled a team of architects, engineers, designers, and builders; whose blend of experience and talent will raise the bar for tropical living and investment to rival some of the best resorts in the Nicaragua.

When finished, the Isla Mariana will be one of the most unique resorts in Nicaragua, with a boutique hotel, a 25-slip recreational marina, and a cluster of vacation homes and bungalows. In addition, the river, which runs in the back of the Isla Mariana property, will be the showpiece of a protected nature preserve.

Truly Affordable Real Estate Opportunities

At Isla Mariana will be a Laya Boutique Hotel and Bungalows, an eco-conscious offering with 16 beachfront bungalows, with construction slated to begin in 2015. Final completion, including food service is slated for the fall of 2016.

Pricing is another area that Isla Mariana has seriously examined in order to reflect the current market. As a result, prices for the bungalows in the first phase are set between USD $79,000 and $89,000.  

Along with excellent pricing for the beachfront bungalows, there will be exclusive early bird specials for the prime beachfront home sites along the Pacific Coast starting at USD $39,000 with 30 feet of beach frontage and a total of 5,100 square feet.

With the crucial infrastructure plans and permits at Isla Mariana in place, construction of infrastructure can begin immediately with completion expected in 2016. These beachfront home sites are available only for a lucky few, so time is of the essence.

Changing Market Conditions and Consumer Demand

Pre-sales and marketing of the real estate at Isla Mariana is being handled by Grupo Mariana, Chairman Kevin Fleming is delighted that business confidence is returning to Nicaragua, he states "Nicaragua has overcome a stigma of political instability and is now poised for strong foreign investment, especially in the real estate sector. The current government is very favorable to foreign investment at many different levels, not just tourism, but in oil and gas exploration plus the transportation sector. The country is starting to boom as a result of government support and improvements to the country's infrastructure. Nicaragua has one of the most generous incentive laws in the region (Law 306) which adds value for foreign investors."

According to Fleming, Nicaragua continues to gain recognition for its emerging economy, political stability and attractiveness to visitors, with tourism increasing over 300 percent over the last decade. International investment also continues to rise. These factors have enhanced the country’s status among investors and travelers.

Isla Mariana will release its second phase properties for sale in late September. Known as the “Investors Program”, these prime beachfront home sites are located on a gentle slope above the beach and will have commanding stunning ocean views.

Mr. Fleming says, "Interest in the Investors Program has already been substantial, and we're anticipating a quick sell-out of the remaining prime home sites. To handle the demand, we've implemented a priority registration process and our plan is to then execute a sales selection event later in the fall, where a number of fortunate individuals will become our “investors” in what is destined to be a unique beachfront retreat."

A private launch Webinar hosted by Grupo Mariana is scheduled for September 25, 2014. There are less than 100 units in total available in this private, low-key retreat, and interest is high. Additional information is available here.

“Another aspect we are very proud of is our commitment to reinvest five percent of each closed real estate transaction at Isla Mariana back into the economic development of the surrounding area,” Fleming says of Grupo Mariana’s 5% for Futures Program. “It’s a win-win to help drive economic growth and sustainability, which enhances the lives of local citizens and makes the entire area more attractive to investors and visitors.”

Upcoming Tour Will Introduce Visitors and Investors To Nicaragua’s Natural Beauty and Abundant Opportunities

Intrepid investors and adventurers seeking a tropical lifestyle will have a chance to explore Nicaragua and all it has to offer when Grupo Mariana offers an extensive fact-finding tour.

Grupo Mariana will hold a Discovery Tour December 2-7 that allows visitors to take a guided tour that acquaints them with Nicaragua, its history, culture and natural resources.

The tour includes visits to Nicaragua’s colonial towns, as well as guided exploration of some of the country’s renowned natural features; including its beaches, rain forests, lakes and volcanoes. Participants will interact with specialists and experts who will provide information on the positive economic and tourism trends in Nicaragua, real estate investment in the country, and numerous other topics designed to provide a broad-based understanding of Nicaragua and its future. Additional information on these upcoming events is available here.

“We’re confident this event is an outstanding opportunity to gain a complete understanding of the beauty and opportunity found in Nicaragua, and ways to benefit from a very promising future,” says Kevin Fleming, Chairman of Grupo Mariana. “For North Americans tired of the cold weather, it’s also a wonderful chance to bask in warm sun and enjoy a beautiful tropical setting.”

If you wish to join the forward-thinking lifestyle investors who seek both high returns and high quality of life, look no further than Grupo Mariana. Grupo Mariana is building on Nicaragua’s growing popularity as a tourist destination, and as a choice for a vacation and retirement lifestyle.

Grupo Mariana is committed to offering a range of residential products on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast and realistic pricing that reflects current market conditions.

Experience the pride of an investment that can be handed down from one generation to the next.

Experience the pure and simple pleasures of life—spending time in places we love with the people we love.

Face-to-Face Conversations Provide Insights and Learning Opportunities for All

Posted by Kevin Fleming, Chairman of Grupo Mariana

Jun 23, 2014 12:49:00 PM

Isla_Mariana_Beachfront_Retreat_in_Nicaragua_III

Here’s an on-the-road report from Kevin Fleming, Chairman of Grupo Mariana:

As I wind up my tour of North America, I am amazed at the many insights I’ve gained from my one-on-one conversations with interested individuals, including many who already have purchased property in Nicaragua or plan to soon. From that group, I continue to learn they are extremely positive about the future returns they anticipate, based on the real estate trends experienced in Costa Rica, Panama and other nearby countries over the last two decades.

Current owners are enthusiastic.

Many have visited Nicaragua, as well as other Central American locations, and they are very enthusiastic about the beauty, culture, warm people and economic advancement they have seen with their own eyes. We all also are buoyed by the rise in foreign investment in the New Nicaragua, as well as the steady increases in tourism. Of course, we also keep a close eye on the nation’s political system, but all signs point to continued stability that will have a positive impact on the future. They also understand that things in Nicaragua are not the same as at home in North America. Yet they also are embracing the adventure and challenge, and finding their investments reassuring in light of what’s happening elsewhere.

Others cope with uncertainty.

Naturally, there are others with whom I’ve talked who are uncertain on many fronts. At home, they are watching the political and economic turmoil in the United States, and wondering what the future holds in terms of jobs, low investment returns, even just how to pay their bills, or how the U.S. government will handle its own outstanding debts. I can only listen and sympathize, but also suggest that looking outside their own country may be a reasonable and profitable long-term strategy.

It’s understandable that for many people, especially those who have not traveled extensively outside their home country, the concept of investing in a foreign country is just that—foreign in terms of understanding the process and assessing the benefits. At the same time, many believe they need to take steps to leverage the funds they have, and also to look for new ways to make money. I think we all agree on that concept.

Our Grupo Mariana team is always ready to help.

I’ve been very direct and honest in telling people that we can help them, that we have the products and team in place that can take much of the uncertainty and risk out of the investment process. Not that it’s a sure thing—nothing is—but that we’ve spent the last eight years undertaking and completing the planning, design and preparation that are necessary. It’s been a slow and sometimes tedious process, and often frustrating. But I’m now very confident that we have the right things in place. We also have the items in place that provide security for an offshore investment, such as title insurance and proper development permits.

A valuable learning experience for all.

It’s been a learning experience for me, and I hope I’ve been able to help others with the information I’ve been able to offer. Of course, I’m always happy to answer someone’s questions or provide information, along with the other members of the Grupo Mariana team. I just want to encourage people seeking options to check out Seaside Mariana and Isla Mariana, see what we’re doing and what we can offer them. Our website is a good start, but we also really want to invite people down to experience the country for themselves. Quite frankly, there’s no better way, and we’ve found those who come quite often come back.

Best value proposition on the Pacific Coast of the America's.

The people of Nicaragua are renowned for their hospitality and receptiveness to visitors, based in a strong family oriented society. For the adventurous, the country is a realm of endless possibilities, including canopy tours through the forests, diving and snorkeling along living reefs, surfing and kayaking, exploring volcanoes and crater lakes, hiking mountain trails, or just relaxing on an expanse of beach. The capital city of Managua possesses a strong urban energy with many of the features expected from a metropolitan area, including expansive shopping and entertainment, a state-of-the-art medical center and international airport.

Most major airlines such as American Airlines and United Airlines s offers daily service to Nicaragua, including non-stop flights from major U.S. cities. Easily accessible are the cities of Granada and Leon, which offer a more languid and historic experience. Granada is the country’s oldest European-settled city where the architecture reflects the strong Spanish influence. Leon is the Nicaragua’s intellectual center featuring a collection of cultural influences and unmatched in Central America. Smaller towns and villages offer visitors a colorful introduction to a simpler way of life virtually unchanged over the decades.

It’s this simplicity that flavors the New Nicaragua even as it begins to flex its renewed strength of purpose. These things converge in Grupo Mariana, which is inextricably linked to the future of the country. Together, the country and resort have built a platform from which a compelling story can be told. In Nicaragua, the saying goes that every citizen is a poet, and this passion for all things is aptly and fully demonstrated in the country’s raw energy and zest for life.

A safe, friendly country attracting over 1 million visitors a year.

Often misunderstood because of its turbulent past 3 decades ago, the New Nicaragua is a safe, friendly country with warm people that is rapidly attracting international vacationers, eco-tourists, retirees and investors from all over the world.  According to the Inter-American Human Rights Institute and Interpol, Nicaragua has been one of the safest countries in all of the Americas for years.

International travelers are drawn to its pristine beaches, inland lakes, volcanoes, and the largest tract of primary growth rain forest north of the Amazon.  If you are looking for adventure, you can enjoy some of the best surfing in the world, hike up a volcano and snowboard down the other side!

Beachfront real estate for sale in Nicaragua.

The current advice for potential investors and visitors alike is to forget what you think you know about the country and explore the New Nicaragua. Underlying the opportunities are the elements that have always attracted the curious and daring: pristine natural settings, temperate weather, a strong history and culture, scores of recreational and tourism opportunities, picturesque cities and towns, and, perhaps most important, a warm and welcoming population.

The real estate market boom is being driven by both residential and commercial property. On the residential side many baby boomers from the US are discovering Nicaragua as a less expensive alternative to Panama, Mexico or Costa Rica where prices are typically 30-50% higher and the potential for capital appreciation is slowing down.

Commercially, Nicaragua’s growing economy has recently attracted many international banks, insurance companies and manufacturers who have now established operations in the country. Overall there has been double-digit increases in direct foreign investment annually over the last five years. 

Nicaragua displays the same opportunities and possibilities that marked the beginnings of economic upswings in Costa Rica, Belize, Panama, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

Declare your independence! The time is now in Nicaragua.

You told us there was a change in the world and a change in your needs. We have listened, and have altered our direction to satisfy your desires.

There is change in the air at Grupo Mariana… there is BIG summer news to be shared in the coming months. We are preparing for the launch of Isla Mariana Beachfront Retreat, when we will share exciting new residential and investment opportunities, and a new way to live the life you've always wanted!

It's time to declare your independence.
