MANAGUA, Nicaragua, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Experience the New Nicaragua
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 capitol 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, United Airlines and Delta Airlines 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!

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, including a 100% increase in 2011. Nicaragua displays the same opportunities and possibilities that marked the beginnings of economic upswings in Costa Rica, Belize, Panama, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
