Tola, Rivas, Nicaragua (CNN) — Move over Costa Rica: Nicaragua is emerging as the new eco-travel darling of Central America.
In the past two decades, Nicaragua has made concerted efforts to increase peace and international tourism; now, it’s one of Central America’s safer nations for travel, based on 2017’s Global Peace Index.
The Emerald Coast, a 30-mile stretch of unspoiled Pacific coastline and dry tropical forest, is at the forefront of this “new” Nicaragua, breathing economic life into Central America’s poorest country.
Travelers who have pushed past outdated perceptions have been rewarded with pristine beaches and forests, world-class surf breaks, local hospitality and sustainability conscious luxury resorts.
The Emerald Coast is one of the only destinations in the world with 300-plus days of offshore winds, due to its fortunate position between Lake Nicaragua — Central America’s largest lake — and the Pacific shores.
It was an insider secret amongst diehard surfing enthusiasts, drawn to humble fishing villages like Gigante and Popoyo Beach’s world-class waves.

The Nicaraguan government will launch construction of the Costañera del Pacífico highway in the next few weeks to boost the country’s tourism sector, vice president and first lady Rosario Murillo told reporters.
The 131km highway will stretch from the northern to the southern border of the country, helping connect main tourist areas located along Nicaragua’s Pacific coast, such as the beach resorts of San Juan del Sur, El Naranjo, Ostional, El Coco, La Flor, Marsella, Las Maderas, Majagual, Guacalito de la Isla, El Gigante, Tupilapa, Huehuete, Casares, La Boquita and Masachapa.
All the details regarding investments and providers, as well as the duration of the project, will be disclosed soon by President Daniel Ortega, local press reported.
“We will begin to work on the first stretch of the highway within the next few weeks,” Murillo said. “This project will help us attract investment, create more jobs, and improve the wellbeing of Nicaraguan families.”
The project to build a highway along Nicaragua’s Pacific coast dates back to the administration of former president Enrique Bolaños in the early 2000s, according to local daily El Nuevo Diario.
During its first term, the Ortega administration was planning to award a 20-year concession to build and operate the highway to an Italian consortium. At the time, the estimated investment for the project was US$200mn, according to the paper.
The Malibú Residences at Pacific Marlin has been immensely successful since the completion of the model home approximately 6 months ago. Its success is evident with only 3 of the 9 homes currently available. Each ocean view residence consist of 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, an infinity edge pool, and 3 expansive decks which all boast panoramic views of the ocean and valleys. The on-site property management sits behind the 24/7 staffed gated entrance with meticulously landscaped grounds and paved roads throughout the project.
