Note to readers, this site and its author are not in any way connected to this real estate deal in the Tola, Rivas area. Please make any connections and communications with the actual seller.

I imagine this is a leasehold property, not a fee simple title, so for some that could be a dealbreaker. However, this is beachfront for less then $20,000 so hey, right?

Booker Travels – Nicaragua: JFK to MGA


This video, Booker Travels – Nicaragua: JFK to MGA, isn’t what I thought it would be, to tell you my impression. It was actually good! It’s a story of a kid whose name is Booker and it follows his trip step-by-step. He goes from his house somewhere in New York, takes the metro to the airport, flies to the Managua airport (MGA), stays overnight at what looks to be one of the hotels near the airport, then goes to Popoyo beach the next day to go surfing.

While I did enjoy the look at buffet of the airport-area hotel he stayed at and appreciate that with a free stay you get some nice footage for your hotel in the video, the video as a whole would have been much better if he had started with our soft landing service instead of a major chain hotel. But the food at the breakfast buffet does look pretty good!

The segment at the hotel could have been much more of a “wow” moment; picture waking up on a tropical farm with views of two volcanoes, one of which is active and smoking. In front of you is a crystal-clear swimming pool with a picturesque, fruit-tree filled valley with a big hill in front of you that goes to “the Clouds” (las nubes). It is quiet and cool and a great place to recharge your energies in preparation for the rest of your Nicaraguan vacation. Great way to end your visit too!

Nice footage of Popoyo there Booker! Nice job on the video and congratulations on being a master of social media. Seriously, I am impressed by this young man.

I think it was Booker's first time to see a cow up close?

The monstrosity of the Canal

By: Ernesto Cardenal

Author and poet Ernesto Cardenal

Author and poet Ernesto Cardenal

We need to expose to the world what is happening in Nicaragua.

President Daniel Ortega, with the all-embracing power that he and his wife have in this country, had the National Congress create and approve (in one day) a law for the construction of the Interoceanic Canal. The people were not consulted at all about this law. The day after the law was passed, a concession was granted  with dizzying speed, although it will affect Nicaragua for over one hundred years. The award was made to a previously unknown Chinese named Wang Jing. The award only grants rights to Wang Jing but does not impose any obligations.

The grant was made without any previous study, as President Ortega himself has said.

The grant requires that all information about the construction of the Canal will remain confidential.

The grant, which was made without any bidding, includes an airport, two ports, a railway and two free trade zones.

National territory has been given so that these works can be carried out where Wang Jing wants and he will have all the permissions to make whatever decisions that may be required. He will have complete license, permit or authorization that he will ever need.

The State of Nicaragua will not receive a single penny in taxes or charges for any of the works.

Under the agreement the Chinese company signed, they are beyond national law, free of responsibility for any administrative, civil or criminal liability or penalty, even if they default on their obligations.

The law is contradictory to many aspects of our Constitution.

It also contradicts other projects that might be more profitable in the long term than cutting apart in two the tourist corridor of the Pacific.

The famed Humboldt Center has stated that the construction of this canal and its Project Partners are the biggest threat to environmental conditions in the country’s history. They also claimed that this concession exempts all Project Partners from compliance with environmental legislation which may be exposing the country to irreversible ecological destruction.

The State of Nicaragua would receive one percent of the shares each year, and in one hundred years would have one hundred percent of the shares.

With every passing ship, a huge amount of fresh water would go to the sea.

The Great Lake of Nicaragua will only have one utility: navigation. We cannot produce food through irrigation, we can only see boats passing by.

Nor can we drink water from the lake. We must also take into account that many people live by fishing in the lake and now they will not have that as an option.

All our water, surface and underground will be given to a Chinese man.

To the owners of the land that will be expropriated by this Chinese man will pay a price for the land at the land registry (i.e. tax declaration) value and not market value.

36 cities would be affected by the loss of the lake, as well as many smaller towns.

The Isletas of Granada will disappear because he locks will raise the lake level by two meters.

This nightmare scenario is what President Daniel Ortega calls the “Promised Land.”

Many experts say that Nicaragua would earn more by selling potable drinking water than from the income of a canal that won’t be ours for a hundred years.

With this Canal, the country will be divided into two, the Nicaragua North and South, as there were two Germanys and as there are two Koreas. There will be two distinct populations of animals (except those that can fly) that will be different over time. which will hurt our biodiversity.

Solentiname has been declared a national monument, but without the lake there will be no more Solentiname. Someone from over there said: “I’ll be eating a lot of fish, afterwards there will be no more because all the fish will be canned by the Chinese.”

With this Canal, Lake Nicaragua, which for us is a great blessing of God, will become a curse.

Doing away with Lake Nicaragua would be the greatest crime in the history of our country, and Ortega would become a more abominable figure than William Walker$.

via The monstrosity Channel | The Press News.

Very clear and direct words from a great Nicaraguan poet and writer, Ernesto Cardenal. I hadn’t thought about the idea that the isletas will basically disappear with a rise in the lake levels of 6 feet, but it makes sense.

Nicaraguan Insiders tell me that this is just a land grab. As I’ve posted elsewhere on this site, lets hope the worst case scenario does not come to pass. Please share far and wide!

I felt like a schoolgirl playing hooky. We awoke early Friday morning, dressed, ate, and then, instead of heading to the office, we took off for the airport to catch a flight to Managua. Just Lief and me. No kids. No checked luggage. Not even our laptops. We had planned this quick escape weekend to Nicaragua spur of the moment, a romantic weekend for two, in one of our favorite countries, a place where we spent a lot of time early on in our marriage but hadn’t returned together in years.Granada,_Nicaragua_2

Almost immediately upon arrival, it all came back, all the reasons I like this country as much as I do. Nicaragua is naturally and dramatically beautiful, but lots of places are beautiful. What sets Nicaragua apart is its heart. You get the feeling, spending time here, that this country is always trying really hard to pick itself up and carry on…to make things better.

Thanks for the article Kathleen. I appreciate your perspective on coming back to Nicaragua after you and Lief were here earlier in the 20-ought years. I knew you when you were at Rancho Santana. As someone who receives visitors here frequently, I can say lots of folks get the bug to move to Nicaragua and many are actually doing it. The lifestyle here is not for everybody, but for some it is great! Cheers, Mike @ Farmstay El Porton Verde, Managua

Good prices on shuttles out of Granada! A good alternative to private shuttle as it’s less costly but nicer and more comfortable then public buses. $18 Granada to Leon isn’t bad IMO.

Nicaragua’s the safest country in Latin America

Nicaragua’s the least dangerous country in Latin America

Study by Gallup indicates that Latin American countries are among the most dangerous, ahead of the African continent and Russia

By elnuevodiario.com.ni | Globe

639x360_1408659610_639x360_1386951789_Resguardo policial HP 1Nicaragua is the safest country in Latin America, according to a Gallup survey. FILE / END

Latin America tops the list in terms of insecurity, with Venezuela in the first place as the most insecure country in the world, an earring in the region despite the progress made in other areas as subject experts opined today.

A study published by Gallup indicates that Latin American countries are among the most dangerous, ahead of the African continent and Russia, despite the slight improvement that have occurred in the last five years.

The region has made ​​significant progress in many areas,however, “the issue of security is a pending task,” Efe said the center’s president Inter-American Dialogue, Michael Shifter.

The index Gallup public safety takes into account the confidence in the local police, the perception of security among the people and incidents of theft.

In Venezuela, described as the most insecure nation in the world for the study, only 19% of adults said he felt safe walking at night in their neighborhood, while 74% distrust of local police and 22% said they had been victim of a theft or have a family member who stole money in the last twelve months.

A UN report says that “the political and economic instability in Venezuela contributed to insecurity” and ranks second in the world after Honduras, regarding homicides, with 53.7 deaths per 100,000 population.

Also, eight of the ten countries with the highest homicide are in Latin America or the Caribbean, and represented 36% of all violent in the world in 2012 deaths, according to the report.

This may be due, according to the study, “the systematic increase in organized crime in the region.”

Drug trafficking and organized crime continued in the region,coupled with corruption and unstable institutional systems contribute greatly worsen the situation, said Shifter.

After Venezuela, Bolivian, Peruvian, Paraguayan and Dominican reported feeling more insecure in their countries, despite an improvement in the perceived safety of the population in 2013 compared to 2009 in Bolivia and the Dominican Republic.

As for the less dangerous Latin American nations, Nicaragua tops the list followed by Panama, Chile, Ecuador and Uruguay. They all showed a marked improvement in recent years, particularly Ecuadorian citizens.

Ecuadorians staged the biggest leap in security from 2009 to 2013, which the president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, attributed “to success in the fight against crime, gun control, the autonomy of the judiciary and campaigns to incarcerate dangerous criminals. “

In the case of Chile, said Shifter, “sound institutions and high human development contribute to the perception of safety and confidence in government” by the people.

Panama is a clear example of “a growing economy that generates many resources and employment positions,” said the analyst.

While Nicaragua, despite being one of the poorest countries in the region, local authorities are quite “respected to maintain order”.

Moreover, residents of Southeast Asia, East Asia, United States and Canada took the top places in the perception of safety, followed closely by Europeans, according to the report of Gallup.

The civil war in Syria and the unrest in Egypt negatively dragged the average of the Arab countries in the deterioration of public safety in recent years, closely followed by North Africa and South Asia.

Gallup’s study was based on telephone and face surveys between 2009 and 2013 led to nearly 1,000 adults over 15 years of each country, with a margin of error of between 2.1 and 5.6 percentage points, and confidence level of 95%.

This question does come up quite often; basically, “where should I stay on my first night in Nicaragua?”

I tried to answer that on my blog, starting with whether or not you will need to stay somewhere near the airport or even if you might need to stay in Managua in general. Just know that not all of the places to stay near Managua are equal in terms of ambiance and tranquility.

I hope that helps.

via Night arrival in MGA, transfer to Leon … safe??? – Managua Forum – TripAdvisor.

It is true that this topic, “where should I stay on my first night in Nicaragua” comes up quite a bit in some of these Nicaragua travel forums such as TripAdvisor. Of course, at the Farmstay we offer our famous (heheheh) “soft landing” service where the idea is to have our friends and other guests we have visiting us start to relax and feel like everything is going to be fine pretty much as soon as they get off the plane. Our philosophy since coming down here to Nicaragua is that as long as we have the idea in mind that “todo es una aventura” then we’ll be okay.

But the folks who arrive at MGA on those later flights have a bit of a dilemna. If you are arriving on one of the night flights coming in from Delta (ATL), American (MIA), and United (HOU), or even later, the Spirit Air flight from Ft. Lauderdale (FLL), you are in my opinion best served to not take that late night shuttle.

If you are just going to Granada or Laguna de Apoyo, or Mombacho Lodge, then sure, not a big deal to take the 45 minutes to get to those spots. But if you are going to further-away locations such as Leon, San Juan del Sur, Matagalpa, Jinotega, Chinandega, Isla de Ometepe, etc. then think it through a little bit before booking that late-night shuttle. Lots more details of your choices here.

Our friends the “Alaska Kings” sent us this link to this property saying “I want this place.” Can’t say that I blame him!

If you would like to check out Laguna de Apoyo for yourself, go ahead and make your reservation for your airfare, let us know when you are coming, and we’ll be there to pick you up at the airport for your “soft landing” service. Then the next day or so, it is a quick hop over to Laguna de Apoyo where there are some lovely properties to stay at. Or, the Laguna is an excellent day trip too.
