Invest in Nicaragua Property on the West Coast and Promote Ecotourism

The Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua is just waiting to the developed as a center for ecotourism. Nicaragua property is here is cheaper than the popular Pacific coast though this just as beautiful and even more uninhabited. This part was a British protectorate and reminds you of the Bahamas before that became such a tourist hotspot. In fact the owners of Nicaragua real estate here have more in common with the people of the Caribbean and Bahamas than they do with the ‘Spanish’ Nicaraguans.

The potential for developing eco-tourism here is tremendous. Very few people live in this vast area known as La Mosquitia region with its sandy white beaches and lowland jungle where rivers are the main form of transportation. The original inhabitants are Miskitos Indians, Sumus and Ramas and because of the old links with the British Caribbean islands, many people speak a mixture of English and their own native languages.

The Governor of the region is keen to encourage foreign investors to buy Nicaragua real estate in this unspoiled area and develop Eco-lodges here. Thanks to his efforts to improve the infrastructure, communications facilities are good. Fishing for lobster, tarpon and other fish is the main occupation. Hikers and anglers will recognize the untapped potential here for ecotourism.

Most people only know of Bluefields and the Corn Islands in the Atlantic region of Nicaragua. Now growing numbers of visitors are discovering Puerto Cabezas further up the coast. Air travel from other parts of Nicaragua is restricted to Bluefields and Puerto Cabezas. A great way to reach the region and see the country is to come by the road from Matagalpa that continues north, crossing rivers Tuma and Prinzapolka and reaches Puerto Cabezas on the Caribbean.

There is a better maintained road that goes from Managua to Rama in the south crossing the river Mico three times before arriving in Rama. The rest of the journey to Bluefields is via the majestic Escondido River by boat. There are small transport vessels departing daily from both port towns to other little towns of this the rain-forest covered coast with endless natural resources. As tourism develops amphibian aircraft may be introduced.
