        Real Estate Markets of Interest in Nicaragua

        Nicaragua Real EstateGranada – Situated on the banks of Lake Nicaragua, Granada shares some of the Moorish architectural influences of her namesake in Spain.  Expats, investors, tourists and retirees have sought out Granada, buying up colonial homes and restoring them – and driving up prices proportionately.
        Leon –  The country's first capital, Leon is a historic Spanish colonial city 90 minutes north of Managua.  Though not as intensely sought-after or fully restored as Granada, Leon also offers colonial homes, and is famous for its  historic churches and universities.  It's also within a short distance of Pacific beaches.
        San Juan del Sur – A surfer's town surrounded by 10 beaches, San Juan del Sur is a small town that has grown in recent years into a center for expats and tourists.

        San Diego real estate - A coastal area located along the coastline of the Villa Carlos Fonseca municipality.  Until recent years, tourism in this area barely existed since there were no major tourist attractions.  It is hard to determine which came first, the development of Pacific Ocean residential real estate developments, golfing communities, and beach resorts, or the discovery that San Diego beach has world class surfing almost all year round. Either way, this area is emerging as a top tourist destination in Nicaragua and as such presents an excellent, early entry real estate investment opportunity.
