“Kathleen, can you still recommend Nicaragua given the upheaval the proposed Chinese-sponsored canal project will bring to the country?”

What upheaval? More like billions of dollars in foreign direct investment, thousands of jobs created, and enormous potential revenue for the country long term.

I have found that even most locals and real estate agents in the area don’t know that a new international airport is about to cater to the 50,000 Chinese and international workers coming here to build the canal.

A Nicaragua Canal has been rumored for decades. In fact, before there was a plan for a Panama Canal, there was a plan for a Nicaragua Canal. Teddy Roosevelt decided to focus on Panama, and we all know the rest of that story.

Our contacts on the ground report evidence that a Nicaragua Canal is on the horizon…suggesting enormous opportunities.
