Dear Friend,

I know many of you have already taken your summer vacation, and a handful of you are still thinking about where you want to go. There are also many of you who are already making plans for a trip during the holiday season, so have you considered Argentina? While you do your homework on Argentina, here are some fun facts to know about this incredible country.

For some, owning a home on or in a vineyard community is a dream come true. But the high price tag of a vineyard home can put the kibosh on this dream, particularly for those who are only considering Napa Valley. More and more people are venturing further south to Argentina. This stunning country offers vineyard estates for under US $500,000, and you won’t have to compromise on style, luxury, or amenities.

One of the most important things to consider no matter where you live is medical care. Our very own Holly Wilson made a trip to Managua, Nicaragua with some of her friends and neighbors at Gran Pacifica to check out a the Naturaleza Store, which neighbors the Vivian Pellas Hospital. While there, they met with a hospital staff member at Vivian Pellas and were given a tour of the hospital along with important information on services offered, like the “Club de la Salud,” a wonderful “health club” of sorts with many benefits.

Speaking of important things, for all you foodies out there, Nicaragua serves up some of the tastiest dishes in Central America. So on your next (or first) trip to Nicaragua be sure to try some of these savory favorites.

When visiting any country, festivals are a fun and exciting way to learn about the interesting culture. Belize has some very popular festivals. To name just a few, there’s LobsterFest, the Costa Maya Festival, which holds a Miss Costa Maya pageant, and the Cacao Festival. In Belize, there’s always something delightful or delicious to celebrate. Luckily for travelers, there are a number of these different festivals throughout the year, and many folks plan their visits around some of these unique cultural events.

Are you thinking about living abroad in your retirement years, or wanting to make a fresh start in life? Belize may be just the place you’re looking for. For those of you who haven’t visited this incredible country, you may not realize just how close it is to the US. Just south and east of Mexico and Guatemala, Belize is a country diverse and rich with culture, beauty, and much adventure and entertainment. It’s increasingly becoming more and more popular for retirees and for others as well who want to start over but still be close to North America.

Until next time,

” ECI is just a solid, wholesome company. You meet the founders, and the people, and they’re just happy. You know anything Mike Cobb tells you, you can take to the bank. It’s like your brother telling you, or even better. This is my first trip to Gran Pacifica, and it just feels like home the moment you get here. Very comfortable, just like old time United States. It has the sense of community that people lost in the US, and I think that’s the most important thing. You really can’t put a dollar value on it, but you know it when you see it, and it’s here.

Coming from a construction background, I can see that everything here is built to last, and there are a lot of little details that were thought of. Looking at the growth here, it really seems to be a solid investment, and it’s also just such a great atmosphere. It’s hard to put words to. It’s really the whole mix of things, trustworthy, common sense people, great climate, real community, and sensible growth. Mike Cobb is a person with a dream, and he’s really making that dream happen here. That’s something you don’t find every day.”
