More and more people are looking at Nicaragua Real Estate as an affordable option for retirement. And why not? Nicaragua once riddled with unrest has settled into a beautiful, tranquil and affordable place to relax and enjoy life. There is something for everyone in Nicaragua.
Nicaragua is one of the most affordable places to live in the Western hemisphere. Food prices for basic fruits and vegetables are one quarter to one fifth the cost of that offered in North American cities. It is also locally produced. The cost of meat and dairy is less than half. The World Bank has issued figures that indicate the cost of living in Nicaragua is 70% less than the cost of living in North American cities.
Nicaragua can offer something for everyone. There are sleepy little fishing villages that slumber along like places time forgot. You can spend the afternoon watching children play soccer along the beach while enjoying a cool fruity beverage. There are wonderfully preserved colonial cities that offer jaw dropping architecture. Feel free to explore the old churches and convents.
The weather is Nicaragua is almost always nice with the heaviest rains of the green season limited to the month of October. The temperatures hover between 78 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit and most days enjoy an off shore breeze. If you prefer a more temperate climate look no further than the northern mountainous regions of Nicaragua. The coffee growing regions enjoy year round temperate climates in a lush green environment.
Nicaragua real estate has always been an affordable option. With the world wide economic crisis of 2008 and 2009, some Nicaragua real estate deals have become downright cheap. It is now possible to get a 2 bedroom/2bathroom luxury condo with fabulous ocean view for $ 120,000.00. These same condos were being sold by the developer in 2007 for $ 220,000.
You owe it to yourself to at least consider Nicaragua as a viable retirement destination. You might be able to enjoy a retirement lifestyle you have always dreamed about for less money than you would expect. Do some research into Nicaragua real estate and you will be pleasantly surprised.
