In our continuing series of posts about local Nicaraguan real estate deals, this listing just came across our (virtual) desk and it looks interesting. Looks like it is up in the hills near Los Gavilanes above Punta Teonoste, which is located in-between the turn off for Popoyo and Astillero in Tola, Rivas.

As usual, I have no interest in this property, do not make any claims as to its reliability, feasibility, or any ability in general other than for you to see what some of the local real estate deals are looking like. This is definitely a nice area, with really lovely beaches and great surf nearby.

Contact me if you want or need an intermediary to help with communications, negotiations, etc. I also have properties that I do represent myself in our local Farmstay area in the hills south of the Managua city centre.

Nicaragua

Eco-adventurers have their sights set on Costa Rica’s northern neighbor as much for its geographic diversity—beaches, lakes, islets, volcanoes, rainforests, and reefs—as for its colonial-meets-bohemian vibe and comparative affordability. The Tribal Hotel is a laid-back luxury retreat in the heart of Granada—a colorful 500-year-old city on the shores of Lake Nicaragua—whose expat owners have globe-trotting friends bound to up the ante of flush visitors. In March 2015, the Inn at Rancho Santana will debut 17 rooms on a breezy isthmus with five private beaches dotting the Pacific Coast two hours southwest of Granada. Neighboring Mukul Resort opened to great fanfare in 2013 as Nicaragua’s first five-star hideaway and has since launched Flor de Caña Centenario 25, a slow-aged premium Nicaraguan rum. Environmentalists are keeping close watch on a controversial Chinese-backed canal development with the potential to boost Nicaragua’s economy but also to threaten ecosystems and indigenous communities—added incentive to explore now. —Nora Walsh

A New Beer comes to the Marketplace :::Bolsa de Noticias::: ***Managua, Nicaragua***

A New Beer comes to the Marketplace

The company Cervecera de Nicaragua launched to the marketplace the new beer Mytos, with 6.3 percent alcohol, higher then Toña and at a cost of 63 codorbas in supermarkets and 100 cordobas in bars and restaurants. The offer is limited for the Christmas period. 

MYTOS

via :::Bolsa de Noticias::: ***Managua, Nicaragua***.

I have just tried this beer and have to say it is quite excellent, especially if you haven’t had a strong beer in a while. It is a type of German brew style called “Kellerbier” which is an unfiltered “cellar beer.” I found it at a mini-market in Las Colinas called Super Express. Best thing besides the great taste? An alcohol content of 6.3. Woo-hoo!

When you’re a critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle, any news is usually bad news. But not today.

New numbers from the Wildlife Conservation Society’s hawksbill monitoring program show big increases in the number of turtle nests on Nicaragua’s Pearl Cays islands.

Researchers counted 468 nests this year in the monitored region, the highest count since the program began in 2000, when only 154 turtle nests were counted.

Some good news! The Cayos Perlas off of the Nicaraguan Caribbean (East) coast are showing some improvement in the number of turtle nests. This is a big deal as the culture of the RAAN and RAAS (northern and southern autonomous zones of Nicaragua) includes lots of eating of turtle eggs and turtle meat. To see this possibly turning around is excellent to hear. Congratulations Wildlife Conservation Society and even more importantly, the local folks who are learning that it is better to protect the environment than to destroy it!

Nicaragua’s Canal, shallow science and phony environmentalism

Tortilla con Sal, December 6th 2014

Western media coverage of Nicaragua’s interoceanic canal has been almost uniformly hostile and often woefully ill-informed since the project was announced in 2013. The most recent attacks have focused on the alleged disaster the canal represents for Nicaragua’s natural environment, mixed in with largely gratuitous attacks on the Nicaraguan government and the Canal’s Chinese main contractor, HKND. A casual reader could be forgiven for concluding that the project is hopelessly misconceived and highly likely to ruin an untouched natural environment.

For example, the Smithsonian magazine has published critical articles by Matthew Shaer and Rachel Nuwer very similar to other reports, for example by James Griffith in the Global Post or in the mainstream corporate media. These consistently inaccurate reports attack the Canal based on superficially authoritative, allegedly science-based arguments. One group, the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation has produced a resolution against the Canal, while other scientists have published criticism in environmentalist publications, for example in Nature magazine.

Some specific criticisms by environmentalists have already been accepted and incorporated into the Canal’s still developing planning stages. But the wider general arguments are often confused, flawed on matters of fact, generally unscientific and blatantly biased in what they argue and almost without exception downright dishonest in terms of what they omit. The article by Matthew Shaer is a good place to start.

Nicaragua’s Canal, shallow science and phony environmentalism | nacional y región centroamericana.

This is sort of “the other side of the story” of the planned Interoceanic Canal, an article by Tortilla con Sal, who is a writer using a pseudonym. He or she writes on a Sandinista propaganda website, http://tortillaconsal.com, which features articles on the latest messages from first compañera Rosario Murillo, letters written by Daniel Ortega to Russian president Vladimir Putin and vice versa, and images of the Daniel and Rosario along with Blanca and Sandino, early Nicaraguan revolutionaries.

blanca_sandinorosario_danielPutting that aside for the moment, when we look at the argument being made in the linked article, it is good to hear the other side of the story, as most reporting by western media has been negative about the canal; its environmental problems, taking of poor peasant’s land, lack of transparency, who will be funding construction, etc.

The facts are that no environmental impact reports have been released. The writer says it is because they have not be completed. Also, that the construction set to begin this month (December 2014) is not to begin dredging the canal, but to begin work on two large ports, one on the Pacific and the other on the Caribbean.

The writer then goes on to state that it is extremely unlikely that the canal work will begin before the environmental impact reports are released. Well, I should hope so! But even if this were true, logically there are environmental impacts for deepwater ports, airports, tourism projects, and commercial and manufacturing area, etc.

Where the author does make a good point is that the deforestation of the eastern part of the country is already well underway and that there is very little pristine forests to be ruined through the construction of the canal, and that in fact they will have to plant hundreds of thousands of trees to keep the watershed intact, which will a net plus as far as number of trees goes.

What I don’t see is how there can be complete mitigation of the damages that will be done to Lake Nicaragua. The waste silt from yearly dredging of Lake Nicaragua alone is an issue, much less the oil spills that will inevitably come.

There is a point to be made that if Nicaragua has the money, it will be able to help the environment that much more by treating dirty water, preventing toxic runoff, etc. whereas now they have squat as far as funds to help maintain natural areas.

The other area where I have to admit the author has a point is the political aspect of these anti-Canal articles. Certainly the United States would rather that the Chinese do not control a canal that is wider then the Panama canal, where the largest ships ever built can pass through, and where the location saves a thousand kilometers of distance between major ports such as New York and Los Angeles, saving millions of dollars in shipping costs. So many publications, organizations, and writers take their cues from these geopolitical issues and put a definite slant to their findings, articles, and positions.

So, to sum up, this article is well worth reading and while I don’t agree completely with the statements made, there are some good points that most of the mainstream press articles do not address. I am a believer that technology and engineering can mitigate much of the damages that will be incurred, but there needs to be a commitment on the part of HKND and the investors to see this thing through, to really dedicate significant resources in mitigating the environmental damages, and to treat the people whose lands will be expropriated with decency and fairness. That, to me all remains to be seen!

Confidencial – Obrajuelo against the Chinese

In less than 24 hours the community of Obrajuelo stoned a HKND truck and hindered traffic on the Panamerican Highway in a clear rejection and protest against expropriation

In less than twenty-four hours, the community of Obrajuelo, located on the shores of Lake Nicaragua in San Jorge, Rivas, returned to show their rejection of land expropriation involving the works of the ‘Grand Interoceanic Canal’: they stoned a truck belonging to concessionaire company HKND-Group, and obstructed the passage on the Panamerican Highway Wednesday.

Approximately fifty people came with Nicaragua flags and banners to protest, because, supposedly, ombudsmen canal project come that day with notices of expropriation. The residents burned tires on the road and hummed the song or rather ‘Nicaragua Mia’ better known as “I am pure pinolero” – emphasizing the verses that address Nicaraguan courage to defend the homeland.

“The Nicaraguan race / knows of struggles and honor”, Alba Espinoza loudly screamed. She said residents of Obrajuelo and the surrounding community “Los Campamentos” stoned at three in the afternoon of Tuesday a HKND truck. They repudiated the Chinese and said that they entered Obrajuelo without consent.

“We have contacts everywhere and they warned us that the Chinese were here. He was stoned and the car was beaten while the Chinese mounted the vehicle. “We did it because we are hurting,” Espinoza told La Confidencial. “How are they going to take our places, where we live, where our children go to school, where our husbands work? Where are they going to send us? We have nowhere to go. What, are going to send us in the air like birds? ” asked the woman.

In the van went four well-dressed Asian officials and perfectly mastered the Spanish language, according to neighbors; accompanied by the police and a driver who was inside the vehicle when the attack began.

“We half wrestled with a policeman who was with them and grabbed stoned and clubbed the truck. You may say it is vandalism but the truth is that we are exercising our rights, do not get us out of our place like dogs … and we will keep it unto death, ” said Jose Lara.

Espinoza said the police threatened to at least forty people who stoned the vehicle. “The policeman touched the gun and said he did not want to get us in trouble. What’s the problem and what the fuck?, we told ourselves. And we move forward like Andrés Castro “, described the resident.

Another protesters called Mayra Montiel said that after the incident with the truck officers of the National Police arrived at Obrajuelo to find those responsible. The police were trying to figure it out, but nobody said anything … we do not trust the police nor in the president we have, what we have is the truth, “he said. However, the second police chief of Rivas, Commissioner Gilberto Ruiz, told Confidential he did not know of the attack on the truck HKND.

“We do not know that information of a truck … We have not received any complaints about this, only complaints that people who are going through this road are being affected by the citizens of this protest, and they were burning tires,” said the commissioner.

The spokesman of the ‘Grand Canal’, Telemachus Talavera, recognized the aggression but gave no further details to this medium of communication. Also, the president of the National Council of Universities (CNU) apologized saying he was in “a presentation” and also did not elaborate on the issue of alleged notifications to expropriate land.

Chinese intend to lease land


What sparked the backlash from the Obrajuelo community was the HKND team met with the owner of the hacienda “La Panama”, Julio Salinas. People began to comment that Salinas had “been tied up by Chinese”, i.e. he had agreed to sell his land.

According to testimony gathered at the protest, the meeting on “La Panama”, an estate of 20 manzanas located on the banks of the Panamerican Highway and devoted to livestock, took almost all day.

Confidential managed to talk to Salinas in his workshop that runs around the Rotunda of the City of Rivas, 150 yards towards San Jorge. Salinas denied that he sold or even come to a negotiation with HKND officials with whom he met.

“They (the Chinese) just talked to me about renting a block of land. There is no negotiation. We have not reached any agreement, because for renting would have to make a contract “, said Salinas, a little nervously, since Wednesday morning the walls of his studio dawned painted with graffiti reading” traitors”. In fact, Confidential found workers covering it with black paint.

Salinas is a man eminently of the country and claims he is not a “traitor”. Simply stated, two Nicaraguans (who said he could no longer identify because he did not know them) came to propose the rental contract. HKND officials explained to him that the manzana of land that it would occupy leads directly to the road as they plan to build a camp on the site.

According to Salinas, they promised to vacate the property, build the fence that they will break down if the deal ends. But so far, the landowner insisted, they have not reached any deal. He stressed that he does not want to be “stuck into these entanglements”. “Anyway, we are all affected by the Canal… I’d sell my land if they were to pay the actual price”, said Salinas.

Later in protest of Obrajuelo, Ismael Espinoza told Salinas that being a Sandinista militant, and agreeing with the work of the ‘Grand Canal’. For Espinoza it is no crime that the owner of neighboring properties sells or rents their land. He would rather see the issue as something moral.

“If you are renting is supporting the shamelessness of the Chinese, because if they tell me that the Chinese who rent from them or borrow my house I not do it. That he would also not support the shamelessness of the government of Daniel Ortega. They want to take us from our own. The Chinese will say that once the first has sold out, so then all will sell, and that is not so, “said Espinoza.

The protest of the Obrajuelo Community was suspended after two police vans filled with police personnel arrived at the scene. Before, villagers chased almost half a mile a group of motorized vehicles that roamed around the demonstration and took pictures. The elder Solomon Flores reported that vehicles were filled with undercover cops. When asked by Confidential, the vehicles fled. The commissioner Ruíz also did not know these people. “I only hang out with my vehicles, I don’t know the rest,” he explained shortly.

At the end of the day, the alleged expropriation notices failed to arrive in Obrajuelo. Flores, with his tired voice, repeated the refrain “Nicaraguan race / knows of struggles and honor” and with his fist raised promised that the Chinese HKND no longer come to his community.

While there are lots of rumors, propaganda and lack of transparency by both the HKND officials and the Nicaraguan government so far, it is entirely possible that these protests are designed mostly to see how the population of these little communities along the proposed Canal route can get bought out at a better price then they would if they just took whatever the original deal was to be. But as the saying goes, what starts badly…ends badly! Fifty people at this protest doesn’t strike me as a real ground-roots phenomenon.

I am not in favor of the anti-Chinese bashing, but really, shouldn’t the Nicaraguan government meet with those affected and begin to assure them that the deal won’t be so bad, that they’ll get some lands elsewhere, that they will get a bit of money too…something? But what do I know, I am a foreigner in this land and sincerely just hope for the best.

As I’ve been saying for a while, if they start the Canal project, they better damn well finish it or the ecological cost will have been paid (Lake Nicaragua unusable by the people, pollution, and tens of thousands of Chinese laborers that will probably never go home after the project is completed) but the economic benefits will never come in. So at least finish it and do all the mitigation efforts identified in your environmental impact reports, treat the campesinos right, and avoid problems. No one wants another revolution!
