WHAT’S HAPPENING

 

Yes it is rainy season and river crossings can be dangerous!

 

Hello from Discover Real Estate

 

Sorry I’m a little late getting out the update on San Juan del Sur this month.  For several days I’ve been dealing with a sick Canadian client who lives here.  I’ve been sending messages and videos via WhatsApp to his son, photos of receipts and exams, talking with doctors, helping translate with the very nurturing Nicaraguans looking after him, etc.  Thursday I spent 7 hours in the SJDS emergency room with him until he was transferred by ambulance to the bigger hospital in Rivas.

 

Rest assured, if you’re my client, I will never leave you high and dry or on your own if you need help!  This was not the first time I’ve spent most of my day in a hospital with a client in need and I’m sure it won’t be my last J

 

Hurricane ETA dumped a lot of water on us so the ground is soaked; now all rains are creating flash floods.   The above photo was taken on 11/10/2020 after a big rain of about 3” and a total rain fall of 72” so far for 2020.  The normal rainfall is 62-65” per year.  San Juan del Sur was not overly affected by ETA since it hit the northeast corner of Nicaragua and SJDS is in the southwest corner but we did get a lot of rain and a little local flooding!

 

I feel sorry for this person in the photo above who was trying to help some people cross the river in Escamequita with their motorcycle on back of the truck.  I was told a backhoe pulled the truck out but then later a Pepsi truck got stuck and a bus pulled it out; welcome to Nicaragua J

 

Here is a video of the crossing and some other photos and/or videos I took or people sent me during this very rainy day.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sERiSYc2OlQ

 

With all this rain comes mold and mildew.  To help keep your house free of mold, air circulation is important.  Use a ceiling fan or oscillating fan to keep the air moving.  Ceiling fans typically use a lot of electricity so turning it off after the rainy season and/or when you aren’t in the room will help you save on your electric bills.

 

Thankfully we are at the end of rainy season and the beginning of my favorite time of the year!  Mid-November through the end of January are pure bliss here for me!  All is a lush green and a few degrees cooler J

 

Are you tired of the rat race?  Below is a great perspective from a client and friend.  Remember you can choose how you want to live your life, I did it and you can too!  You can choose to be relaxed on a beach in Nicaragua paying $1 at Happy Hour for ice cold beers.  Here is what Gary posted on Facebook a few weeks ago:

“Well, I’ve been back in Nicaragua for a month now. I’m away from Politics and Pandemic updates. I watch the NBC Nightly news, the next day on YouTube….sometimes. Not to say there is no pandemic here, but people here are being responsible at their own pace. More importantly, being here allows me to slow down and put some thought to things. I will preface this with, this is only my opinion.

What’s our goal in life? Is our goal simply to be happy? I mean, what really makes you happy? Or better, what do YOU NEED to be happy? We’ve worked really hard most of our lives just to keep our heads above water…. but really, how high above the water does your head need to be for you to be happy? I’m sure that when giraffes swim, most of their necks are still underwater. Why? Because that’s all they need. (Unless it’s shallow, lol) I guess my point is that all along I thought it was important to acquire stuff to be happy later on.

But now I see a Country and a culture that has the happiest people in the world. Yet, they have next to nothing. Many homes without electricity, indoor plumbing, good drainage or even floors made of something other than dirt. Yet they have made the best of what they have and have no idea they are seen as poor, because this is their normal.

What they lack in wealth, they are rich in spirit, resiliency, and humility. They don’t complain, if they need money, they go work. There is no job they won’t tackle. They sell fruit on the corners or peddle around on a cart selling ice cream. They are the friendliest, hardest working people I’ve ever seen. And there’s absolutely no sense of entitlement.

I have friends in the States that are unhappy with their jobs. They feel like they have to work at a place they don’t like for fear of what the future holds. So they set this goal of having $100k to $5Million in their 401k that will allow them to retire without worry. They work and work, finally reach their goal, mission accomplished, and die the next day.

My advice is simple. You decide your own happiness. Take away the materialistic part. Find places that allow you to be happy without price tags. Venture out. The joy and giggles from kids and happy people. Sincere and authentic people with no hidden agendas. Surround yourself with authenticity.

Slow down. Listen more, talk less. The most difficult part for me was to try to bring our rapid pace culture here along with our premium standards. Bending a bit is a small price to pay for a drama and stress free lifestyle. Different is not bad, different is just different. So you adapt and realize that different…may, just may…. be better for you.

Slow down, be a better listener, and treat each day as a gift. I’ve had my share of close calls, you truly will never know when your last day will come. Make yours the best! And if you get to do it again….bonus!”

 

If any of this wisdom resonates with you, our office is here to help you relocate to Nicaragua and find your slower pace of life.  I moved here 15 years ago and can’t imagine living anyplace else!  It isn’t perfect but no place is so why not live somewhere less stressful, less demanding, less expensive, and most of all happier than anyplace I have ever visited in my world travels.  In Nicaragua Less really does = More!

 

Things are starting to pick up in Nicaragua!  Here is a company expanding its offices in Nicaragua!  https://nearshoreamericas.com/ibex-expand-operations-in-nicaragua-contact-center/?fbclid=IwAR31ku9dwpBCQJ19PgX2QQ2mvSVYGz7i2PzDhwen4jspwF4bbBC8Ukgsfg4

 

The WHO says lockdowns don’t really work and Nicaragua never locked down, people just took precautions they were comfortable with.  If you don’t want to live through another lockdown…..maybe it is time to relocate to Nicaragua if you aren’t already here!  https://www.news.com.au/world/coronavirus/global/coronavirus-who-backflips-on-virus-stance-by-condemning-lockdowns/news-story/f2188f2aebff1b7b291b297731c3da74

 

TreeCasa has a new entrance road!  Off the Chocolata Road take the 2nd dirt road to the right after the entrance to the hospital.  Beautiful new smooth road to access the premier resort in the area.

 

Flights…..my biggest pain in the _ _ _ right now!  Information seems to change daily so check frequently with the airlines to see when they will be resuming regular flights.  And here is a link to a new Facebook page dedicated to flight information:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/357866422221528/?multi_permalinks=373263894015114%2C373106817364155&notif_id=1605110203357113&notif_t=group_activity&ref=notif

 

A tour Group booking Charter flights on Avianca has brought in weekly flights successfully!  You need to be flexible because sometimes a flight is delayed or reschedule but at least you can come and go now.

 

BioCollections in Miami’s Little Haiti District has been used by several clients for a rapid PCR COVID-19 (nasal swab).  Show up at 6 am and wait in line in your car, the friendly staff walks up to your car to get your information.  They place an ID card on your dash and as soon as they start testing at 6:45, you drive up to the outdoor tent stations.  The test takes under a minute then you are free to leave.  You will receive your test results online before 5 pm the same day.

Pats on the Back – One client recently sent me a small donation because she enjoys reading my updates – in these difficult times, it was greatly appreciated!

Our team helps with everything; it isn’t just all me!

Thanks for the update, I’m glad you have recovered.  I haven’t spent my winters here in Canada for several years and hope I don’t have to this coming winter.  Have you heard anything about flights from Canada (Toronto to Managua) usually via El Salvadore.  Covid hasn’t been nearly as bad in Canada as in the USA but I think we are being painted with the same brush.  Please let me know if you have any information.

Harold

United flies from Houston to El Salvador from there you can take Avianca. Friend from Canada flew United from Toronto to Washington where United partnered with Avianca, Washington to El Salvador to Managua this morning

David

Hi Natalie, thanks for all the updates. Glad to hear you’re feeling better, you are an inspiration. We are back in Canada with hopes of returning by January. Still have some ties in CR to deal with as well. Do you have an update on the Tennis court projected at Santa Maria Resort? So take care Natalie, keep well.

Sincerely

Bart

Another plus is this property is beside and connected to Villa Loma B&B.  You can enjoy meals there and/or put the casa or casita under their rental management as long as it remains a B&B.  Only $259,000 Reduced from $299,000 for 2 houses and 4 acres!!!  http://discoversjds.com/property/casa-guayacan-casita-colibri-south-of-playa-hermosa/
