A New Beachfront Retreat is Rising on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast

Read more:  A New Isla Mariana Beachfront Retreat is Rising on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast.

Isla Mariana Beachfront Retreat Nicaragua Blog

Grupo Mariana owns clear title to 1.5 kilometers of beach frontage on the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua, 89 kilometers northwest of the capital city of Managua. The property is 17 acres situated on a peninsula that spans 11 kilometres in length and is bordered by the town of Salinas Grandes to the North and Puerto Sandino to the South.

Isla Mariana is now a community with one unique neighborhood while the master plan has been completely revised and now features a recreational 25-slip marina, true beachfront home sites and a 16-room boutique hotel under the Laya Boutique Hotel brand.

Laya Boutique Hotel and Bungalows is a new component under the Grupo Mariana umbrella, and is a completely unique hospitality offering within the country of Nicaragua. A relaxed, eco-conscious hideaway for those looking for a private beachfront experience, Laya will offer boutique hotel suites and beachfront bungalows stretched along the Pacific Ocean. Laya, which means “liquid” in Nicaragua’s native Miskito language, offers travelers and couples a private destination and experience.

We believe that Isla Mariana is truly positioned to become an “eco resort” that respects the environment and offers an uncompromising, relaxed lifestyle. It’s an off-the-beaten path just 30 minutes from the colonial city of Leon, Juan Venado Nature Reserve as well as the unique Salinas Grandes area where salts are pulled directly from the sea surrounds it. Because of this, Isla Mariana is dedicated to preserving and promoting Nicaragua’s natural resources and efforts are being made to classify the nearby salt fields as an eco-preserve. In essence, Isla Mariana is a wonderfully exceptional and beautiful place.

Nicaragua To Gain A New Airport


Agreement Between Barceló and Nicaragua to Build Airport

A partnership has been formed between the Nicaraguan government and the Spanish group Barceló to build an international airport in the Montelimar resort, in San Rafael del Sur.


An article in reports that “The Government ofNicaragua and the Spanish hotel group Barceló have signed an agreement to build an international airport in the Montelimar resort, in the Pacific, officials said on Sunday. The agreement, which creates a joint partnership between the two parties was signed in a private ceremony in Managua by Nicaragua’s Attorney General Hernan Estrada, and the group’s director for Barceló Central and South America, Juan José Ribas. ”

The State of Nicaragua will have control of the joint venture, as it would hold a 75% stake, with the Barceló group owning the remaining 25%.

The Spanish hotel chain Barceló has two establishments in Nicaragua, a luxury hotel located in the south of the capital, and the other the Barcelo Montelimar Beach Resort & Casino, a resort located on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua, 65 miles south Managua. The latter will directly benefit the construction of the proposed international airport, because tourists will arrive not only from within the country but also directly from other Central American countries, including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala and Panama.

Nicaragua’s Coastal Road

The Tourist Scenic Coastal Highway on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua and Central and South Poneloya could be extended so that it connects with Leon.

 Representatives of the Italian company SPIN are expected to visit the country in the next 60 days, with a technical and financial proposal to build the so-called “Tourist Scenic Coastal Highway on the Pacific and Central and South Coast of Nicaragua.”

At a cost of approximately $200 million, the 138 kilometer four-lane highway will stretch from Punta El Naranjo (on the border with Costa Rica) to Masachapa, through the departments of Rivas, Carazo and Managua. The return on investment for the Italian group will come from toll charges.

René Sabas Gómez writes in that, “The Costanera Highway project will connect and benefit resorts, beaches and coastal cities such as El Ostional, La Flor, San Juan del Sur, the Huacalito project (under construction), Brito, Astillero, Chacocente, Huehuete, La Boquita, Casares, Salinas de Nahualapa, Pochomil, Masachapa and Montelimar, stimulating investment for the construction of new resorts, marinas, tourist projects and even whole new coastal resort towns.


Nicaragua Signs Agreement Aimed to Increase Cruise Ships to its Shores


The Nicaraguan Institute of Tourism and the Cruise Association of Florida & the Caribbean have signed an agreement to promote the arrival of cruise ships to the shores of the country.  The agreement was signed by Nicaragua Institute of Tourism CEO, Mario Salinas Pasos and Michele Paige of the Cruise Association of Florida & the Caribbean.



As part of the agreement, Nicaragua will pay a fee for each cruise passenger who disembarks on Nicaraguan soil.   The Cruise Association will provide technical support to Nicaragua for tours and training guides. Additionally, to promote Nicaragua as a cruise destination, the Cruise Association will provide promotional information and advertising in brochures and catalogs.

The president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, is extremely interested to promote this market sector since it will be very beneficial for the country.

Premier Fishing In Nicaragua

From: Fishing :: Gigante Nicaragua.


Nicaragua is fast becoming one of the premier “frontier fishing” spots in the world. Long advertised as a surfer’s paradise, international fishermen are now exploring the abundant fisheries of Nicaragua. Your best bet to catch fish while you are in Gigante is to book a charter trip with one of the three charter operators who operate from Gigante Bay. See the listing of Charter Operators below.

Fishing in Nicaragua can vary greatly depending on the season. There are only two seasons: the Dry season from November thru May and the Rainy season from June thru October. Offshore winds blow constantly during the Dry season and the near shore water is generally clear but can be choppy if the winds are strong. The wind is generally offshore and less strong during the Rainy season but the river runoff from the rain can make near shore waters cloudy with silt. September and October are especially rainy due to the counter clockwise motion of tropical systems in the Pacific and Caribbean pulling moisture over the Southwest Nicaraguan coast. Land travel can be very difficult during these two months because the roads are very muddy and stream crossings are impassable.

Nicaragua is beginning to appear on the radar of travelers, with its natural beauty and old-fashioned charm that neither tourism nor internal strife has ruined.

From ash boarding down the side of one of the youngest (and active) volcanoes in the world, to scuba diving in the Little Corn Island – known for its remote, pristine beaches – along with the excitement of colonial towns such as Leon and Granada, in Nicaragua you can still travel under the radar.

From: Nicaragua tourism: the next Costa Rica? | Fox News.


In the years since the revolutionary war of the 70’s and 80’s ended, something of a democracy has developed in Nicaragua. Presidential elections were held and many of the restraints on citizens were lifted. Capitalism is now slowly invading the economy, as more businesses risk development and more services become available.

As a result, curious world travelers are gradually starting to seek out this formerly menacing place. It’s no surprise, as word spreads about the miles of white sandy beaches, rain forests and mountains that have become a major draw for hikers and climbers. Unique geologic rock formations left by volcanic eruptions of the past have become sought out tourist attractions.


While the national language is Spanish, many people in the Central American country speak fluent English. In fact, they learn it in school, often beginning when they are just five years old. New hotels, resorts, restaurants and bars are opening up on the coasts and around the colonial cities, like Granada, which at first glance looks like a pretty but faded postcard. Older Spanish style buildings border the city’s center square and decorated horse drawn buggies can be hired for travel around the area.

Fishing in Nicaragua

Nicaragua is a wonderful country to visit if you are a keen fisherman and would like to attempt a variety of fishing techniques in the exotic waters found here. Not only will you have an opportunity to catch a variety of fish in all shapes and sizes, but you will also have a picturesque landscape with volcanoes and tropical rain forests as a background.


You may wonder how Nicaragua differs as a fishing destination from other seemingly equally wonderful areas. The biggest difference is that the waters of Nicaragua have only recently begun to be fished for recreational purposes. This means that there has been very little sporting pressure on natural fish populations in the area so fishermen can basically view it as virgin territory.
