With its glorious natural scenery, excellent climate, welcoming culture and excellent standards of living, Nicaragua is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the most desirable places across the world to live or visit. On offer here is a chance to make a smart financial investment into this magnificent part of the world.
Casa Carmelo is located within the Reserva Nacional Volcan Mombacho amid what was once an historic coffee plantation. The Reserva Volcan Mombacho is famous for its native plants, orchids, animal life, and panoramic vistas. Casa Carmelo, set within a tropical forest within the park boundaries, shares many of those unique elements. Casa Carmelo is the only home constructed within Mombacho Vista Estates, a development of some 120 manzanas (209 acres), giving the home a sense of living in a large, personal sanctuary.
The Casa Carmelo property itself is surrounded by mature landscaping with tropical flowers and trees and spectacular views of Granada, the Isletas, the rim of Laguna de Apoyo and Lake Nicaragua (Cocibolca). The designation of a national reserve helps to preserve trees, plants, flowers and animal life unique to the area. In additional to local protected flora and fauna, the surrounding area includes coffee and cacao fincas, bananas, mangos, plantains, and avocado trees.
The property is located at an elevation of 520 meters/1700 feet, approximately 9Km/5.5 miles SSW of the historic pueblo of colonial Granada. The elevation, coupled with near constant easterly breezes across Lake Nicaragua, translates to near perfect weather, with summer temperatures ranging from the low 70s (+/- 22C) to mid 80s (+/- 30C) and winter temperatures ranging from the mid 60s (+/- 19C) to low 80s (+/- 26C)—daytime highs are consistently 8-10 degrees cooler than at the elevation of Granada. There is no need for either Air Conditioning or heat. Casa Carmelo provides a beautiful, private, and safe retreat type environment high above the constant hum, heat, dust and traffic of “city life”.

ABOUT THE AREA
Granada is a Nicaraguan city on the shores of Lake Nicaragua. It’s home to multiple Spanish colonial landmarks that have survived repeated pirate invasions. The city’s main plaza, Central Park, is dominated by the colorful, neoclassical facade of the Cathedral of Granada, originally dating to 1583. The Centro Cultural Convento San Francisco nearby is famed for its displays of pre-Columbian.
Nicaragua’s oldest town is also its most beguiling. It’s no wonder many travelers use the city as a base, spending at least a day bopping along cobblestone roads from church to church in the city center, then venturing out into the countryside for trips to nearby attractions.
Just out of town, adventures take you to an evocative archipelago waterworld at Las Isletas and fun beaches at the Peninsula de Asese. Volcán Mombacho has walking trails, not to mention a few hot springs dotted around its foothills. The Laguna de Apoyo is another must-see: its clear turquoise waters and laid-back waterfront lodges offer a splendid natural respite.
Culturally curious travelers might consider a trip to community-tourism operations in nearby villages such as Nicaragua Libre, or out to Parque Nacional Archipiélago Zapatera, home to one of the most impressive collections of petroglyphs and statues in the country.
