Anyone been to, or know anything about these islands? I was offered a trade for a private 5 acre island along with a registered US inport export corporation in trade for my farm in WA. The news paints the situation in Nicaragua as bleak, but I was curious what those that have been there recently think. Seems like the perfect place to set up an artist/ free thinkers community. Any input would be greatly appreciated. You get to the island from a 45 min boat ride from Costa Rica. The import/ export corporation allows for the import of supplies legally from Costa Rica.

Not personally but I have a good pal who's just got back from Nicaragua.. says it was amazing, and un-spoiled by tourism. Land is cheap, and he's buying a section and is moving when possible! I can't wait to make it to Central/South America - sounds like the perfect place for a free thinking community as 'La Vida Pura' (the pure life) is praised so much higher there than Babylon bullshit!

Fuck yeah, I'll come visit!

You’d visit, first, right? Is it a part of Nicaragua? If so, would you visita Nicaraguan attorney in person so as to evaluate any legal docs? If not . . . are you freaking crazy?

LEGALLY, you can OWN a business if you yourself are the owner and NOT a worker, and work for your business has to be given to Nicaragua citizens. This also grants residency.

Sad but true
A Nicaraguan friend now in Houma Louisiana asked me if I'd be willing to marry his Nicaraguan attorney sister for a green card - should I forward your deets?

He showed me a pic, not bad at all - too good for me in fact

If I did this I would sail my boat there, build an earthbag house that is small and round to protect against storms, and a few huts. I would set it up as a primitive hostile and offer sailing charters aswell as an import/ mail service for back packers.

whatever is going on in the mainland means shit if you live on an island.

Thanks for the good vibes. This opportunity sort of blindsided me so I am mainly info gathering at this stage.

What a tremendous opportunity! If you need a fighter-jet mechanic, bartender, dental technician, welder, plumber, agronomist, or art director who speaks, writes, and reads Spanish, French, and English lemme know!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$150.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $150.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
