Please excuse the minor error in the title – I meant to write “Wildlife” as in birds, bugs and beasts – but it probably caught your attention. I promise to write about that other subject soon.
This essay is being composed by a long-retired Canadian who has spent considerable time over the past eight years on the beautiful sand beach at Salinas Grandes on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua – so please be prepared for a total layman’s view of the nature of things.
Having spent the bulk of my considerable days communing with the natural wonders and the ravenous pests in the Canadian countryside I was fully prepared to confront an even greater menace during the perpetual Nicaraguan summer. As you will soon see my fears were completely unfounded.
I am not a naturalist and cannot claim to have any expertise in that area. However, I can generally separate the inhabitants of the countryside into the broad general categories of bugs, birds and beasts. So let me tell you of some of the cast members that mother nature has entertained us with over the past few years on the beach in Nicaragua. Continue reading
For the past few months a beautiful thing has been growing on an attractive beachfront property in our favorite Pacific oceanfront community in Nicaragua. It was growing slowly at first – but now it’s impressive size is attracting quite a bit of attention.
It came to life one day in September of 2012 when a group of partners in a small corporation met on a beautiful beachfront lot with some shovels and planted a memorable seed. It was the seed of a wonderful opportunity – an opportunity for the community to embark on a path to greater prosperity through employment and an opportunity for a fortunate family – just like yours – to begin a new and unforgettable chapter in their lives.
On that day we broke ground on the spot where a beautiful, state-of-the-art home would arise from the fertile mind and talents of one of the country’s leading architects, Mr. Boris Guevara. Joining with the equally impressive abilities of our California-trained and experienced builder, Mr. Marlon Barrera and his assistant, the diligent and talented Mr. Octavio Delgadillo, this journey began. Mr. Barrera is well-known for his renovations of impressive architectural landmarks in the city of Leon, as well as his contemporary housing projects. In fact, not only has Mr. Barrera restored the city’s most impressive hotel, he has built one of his own in Leon.
Under the watchful eyes and with the full impact of the talents of these men and the best of Nicaragua’s skillful workers a beautiful home is rising on an attractive property on the best beach on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua.
From the specially raised foundation with a breathtaking ocean view, to the lifetime roof of hand-made ceramic tiles, this home will epitomize all that its fortunate future owner could have dreamed of. The services, facilities and amenities will be the best available, incorporating all the most modern features – including internet access and the full range of US and local television programming for it’s wall-mounted flat-screen TVs.
This is a first-hand report on the status of the beach and the community on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua at the village of Salinas Grandes.
My wife, Barbara and I arrived at our casita on the beach on the afternoon of January 16, 2013 after an uneventful trip from Toronto, Canada. As usual the trip had taken only five hours, including the layover in Miami. On the 90 minute trip from the airport in Managua we had stopped at one of the major “supermercados” to buy provisions – and a few bottles of Tona, the excellent local beer.
After an uneventful, but very scenic 90 minute drive on the excellent TransAmerica Highway, we turned onto the 11 km (7 mi.) road to the beach. Like most rural roads in Nicaragua the road to Salinas Grandes is “paved” with local limestone and volcanic rock that is turned into a form of gravel by the occasional crushing action of a very large diesel roller and the subsequent action of the local traffic. In the case of our beach road this approach has resulted in one of the better rural thoroughfares. It is wide and generally quite navigable with only a few spots that are mildly challenging to our rented Toyota Corola.
