Nothing More Stunning than Rainy Season Sunsets!!! 😊

The rains have started, all is green, and the sunsets are spectacular!

A client recommended a company to me,,  to help with my cancer which has home protocols and/or cancer clinics you can visit in various countries such as Mexico, Germany, etc.  I’m super happy I paid for a consultation with them!  My health coach analyzed what I was doing, told me I was doing amazing and tweaked it just a little, and recommended a few other products to take also.  It feels like it is shrinking again but I won’t know how much for another 2 weeks when I get my next ultrasound.  Say a prayer for me and send me all your healing vibes that this sucker shrinks! 😊

And Ricardo converted our massive Nica style shower into a bathtub/shower with a grab bar since it is a wide step getting in and out.  Now I can soak in Epsom Salts, Castor Oil, and various other healthy anticancer components!   He found a great supplier for tubs in Managua that are affordable if you would also like a bathtub installed.  And I love the wide ledge around the tub thanks to the massive size of the shower, lots of space for candles! 😊

Every month I get an ultrasound from Dr. Lopez right here in SJDS which is only 800 cords/$22 USD, super affordable.  Please reach out to him if you would like anything checked and he speaks English too!  +505-5880-2793

I flew on Spirit Airlines from Managua to Baltimore, MD in June for 10 days to visit my family and friends in Pennsylvania.  If you can travel light and don’t have to pay for a regular size carryon or checked bag, Spirit is a great low-cost option but not the most comfortable.  However as soon as you start paying for extra luggage beyond the very small bag you are allowed for free, the total roundtrip price goes up dramatically.  Luckily, I had left some clothes at my parents’ house on my last trip so I was able to travel light.   Kind of nice not traveling with a lot of suitcases 😊

Tired of getting lost in Nicaragua? 

Install the app Waze on your cell phone!

Waze is the best way to navigate all of Nicaragua and the world!  Just type in where you want to go, and Waze will get you there and tell you where the police or accidents are if other Waze users have reported them!   Also, if you are looking for a hotel close to you, type in hotel and all the hotels close to you will be listed. Or type in any type of restaurant you are looking for and a list of them will be displayed!  I love Waze!!!

Tip of the Month if living in Nicaragua

This guy, Plant Hacker, can teach you how to grow or clean just about anything!  I love watching his reels on Facebook where he teaches you how to germinate various plants or clean things with chemical free natural solutions you have around the house.

Pats on the back for me 😊

Congratulations again!!!So happy for you both!!  I hope going back on the diet shrinks the cancer…You are amazing!! 

Love,  Jeanne and Marc

Dear Natalie,

Congratulations. The LORD bless you and Ricardo.  One person could be overpowered. But two people can stand up for themselves. And a rope made out of three cords isn’t easily broken (Ecclesiastes 4:12).

I hope to be in Nicaragua in August.

Many blessings, Ramon from Germany

Casa Iguana Morada In Pelican Eyes San Juan Del Sur!   EXCLUSIVE 

Casa Iguana Morada in the residential section of Pelican Eyes in San Juan del Sur!

This fantastic 2-bedroom 3 bathroom house is perfect to live in full time or use as a rental income property.  The residential section of Pelican Eyes is mostly a family place full of families with children living here full time and enjoying the schools that cater toward foreign children.

Walking tour of the house:

The guest bedroom is large and can easily be split into two rooms if desired.  Also, the master bedroom has lots of privacy as it is set off by itself and is on the edge of a common area so no other houses will ever be built close to it.  And the patio beside the master bedroom is big enough for a small pool or you can join the pool club if you want to use the lap pool which was part of the previous development but is now privately owned.

Another benefit is the futon in the large living room and a full bathroom off the kitchen which makes entertaining guests convenient or more valuable as a rental property as this house can easily sleep 8 by utilizing the futon in the living room.

Casa Iguana Morada can be accessed from the shared parking above or below the house.  And walking into town from it is no problem but depending on your level of activity, you may want to take a taxi to get home, especially if you are carrying groceries.

Please contact us today for more information about Casa Iguana Morada!

This home greets you with a graciously sized living room and kitchen area. The island is massive, with built-in bookcases tucked at either end of it.  The island looks out over the open-concept room. There are glass doors across the front of the house, all slide entirely open to bring the outside in and make the room feel even more extensive. Aside from the stunning size of the room, the height of the wood-paneled ceilings give the room an even grander feel. There are windows all along the southwest side of the house letting in a tremendous amount of natural light.

Each of the five bedrooms is of average size with large windows to let in the light. The bathrooms both have floating vanities and walk-in tile showers.  Outside, walk in a lush yard or lounge by the pool, taking in the views.

Priceless Beachfront Malecon Property, San Juan Del Sur!   EXCLUSIVE 

Priceless Beachfront Malecon Property, San Juan del Sur! Unobstructed beachfront, a priceless location, an oversized street to street lot, beautiful ocean view, currently operated as a highly rated hostel. One of the most visible and popular locations in all of Nicaragua. By address and size alone, a once in a generation property with timeless value.

As is, the property features 1278 m2 (one-third acre) of land, 13 bedrooms with private bathrooms, a caretaker’s house, garage, and a restaurant. All of that aside, the true value is in the land.

From the back of the property, walk two blocks to the central church park, three blocks to the central market, and be within walking distance to the stores and services of town. From the front door, step out to the Riviera of San Juan del Sur beach and bay, benefit from the forthcoming Malecon (boardwalk) improvements, and enjoy the free exposure to thousands of tourists annually.

The highly rated hostel is ready to assume, but the highest and best use would be a mixed commercial development. This property is so large, the options are limitless. Imagine what San Juan del Sur needs – a retail plaza anchored by a fashionable restaurant or café, with retail and commercial on the interior, condo or townhomes in back and an upscale ocean view hotel. Take advantage of the prime real estate exposure to provide services and retail at the front, and professional services at back. Although it is at one of the busiest locations in San Juan del Sur, the interior is beautifully shaded by large trees, and the backside is a quiet residential street.

Without comparison, this is clearly below value, a tremendously large parcel, a very rare opportunity, and the most desirable location.

Note that the furnishings and finishes of the hostel business are available separately.

One must see in person to understand the extraordinarily large size of the parcel.  Once this property is sold, it is unlikely there will be anything similar for years to come. Please contact us today to begin your next successful venture!

One thing this house does not lack is storage options. There is a walk-in laundry and storage room, oversized linen closet, pantry, and under-counter storage around the kitchen. Another thoughtful feature of the home is the custom-built desk. This makes working from home easy.

Outside you will find an extended covered patio where you can enjoy the outside from the comfort of shade.
