MANAGUA, Nicaragua, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In 2003, Canadian Kevin Fleming was introduced to the country of Nicaragua by his wife Maria, a native. Fleming was amazed by the beauty, culture, people and opportunity found in the little-known Central American nation. After moving to Nicaragua permanently, he and his wife dedicated their efforts to entrepreneurial projects. "Destiny might be a strong word but in our case it fits," says Fleming. "We met a decade ago and embarked on a journey that lead us to an amazing country with some of the most spectacular beachfront found anywhere in the world. Our goal is to introduce others to the New Nicaragua; we are certain they will love the country as we do and will find opportunities unheard of elsewhere."
Throughout 2013, Fleming will be bringing his vision and expertise to the United States and Canada with a 23-city tour. Fleming will sit down with small groups of interested individuals to discuss the country's potential as an ideal place to invest, vacation, retire or start a business. "Maria and I are devoting our efforts to well-planned, sustainable developments that will stimulate the local economy and offer investors a wonderful chance to capitalize on the potential for growth," says Fleming, who serves as chairman of Grupo Mariana. "Nicaragua is still a misunderstood country, but is beginning now to experience the growth and progress that created dynamic opportunities in such places as Costa Rica a decade ago."
Fleming points to the steady growth in the Nicaraguan economy, including dramatic rises in international investment, foreign trade and tourism. He also stresses the strong culture of the country's citizens and the expansive natural beauty, noting that Nicaragua is one of the world's most biologically diverse locales. The country's Pacific Coast was compared recently by an international magazine to California for its climate, outstanding coastline, and recreational variety.
Nicaragua's Pacific coast is the setting for Grupo Mariana's first resort community, Seaside Mariana; which is situated on 923-acres with over a mile of pristine beachfront. The development, which broke ground in 2012, features a championship design golf course and will have a 5-star Beachfront Resort & Spa as a centerpiece. A range of homes, condominiums and bungalows are available and are proving attractive to investors and adventuresome travelers alike. Development activities also continue at Isla Mariana, an eco-resort on Nicaragua's Pacific Coast, which will feature a 25-slip recreational marina, true beachfront home sites, and Laya Boutique Hotel bungalows.
As part of Grupo Mariana's commitment to having a positive influence on local Nicaraguan communities, a non-profit foundation has been established with 5% of all real estate sales contributed to create jobs, provide training and stimulate economic activity in local towns. "We're very confident this is a way for us to contribute to the future of Nicaragua," Fleming says. "This is a country with tremendous needs, but also very strong people who are working hard to push their country forward."
Fleming's tour begins in Calgary at the end of January and continues throughout December, with stops in:
