(specifically around Visa Run Assistance and Information on
SAN JUAN DEL SUR, NICARAGUA
and LOTS more!!!


@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

COMING SOON!!!!!
VISA RUN ASSISTANCE, Information+ to
SAN JUAN DEL SUR, NICARAGUA!!!

I’ve been doing Visa Runs to San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua (the first seaside village just over the Costa Rica-Nicaragua border - and Isla Ometepe) for over 4 years now -
and I JUST returned from spending 6 weeks checking out the potential of living in
San Juan del Sur part-time (spending part time in Costa Rica and part time in Nicaragua!! - hey - por que no - I CAN!!  I went just on a 1-2 day Visa Run and figured I had a break in between House/Pet Sitting gigs and I REALLY NEEDED a water fix [as of now I have NO plans to move from Costa Rica full time before the gossip wires start buzzing!!])
and I’m gathering LOTS of information to update my San Juan del Sur Information/Photo Sites

facebook.com/SanJuanDelSurNI
SanJuanDelSurNI.com
 plus to check it out as a potential place for OTHERS to move to since I’m hearing MANY people leaving Costa Rica and seeking new places and some have asked me to learn more for them since Nicaragua is SOOOOO MUCH CHEAPER than Costa Rica
(#1 reason I’m hearing for people leaving
Costa Rica [as well as literally 98% of why MOST travelers I’m meeting on this trip are NOT choosing to come to Costa Rica or reporting on their pass through Costa Rica - BY FAR is how EXPENSIVE Costa Rica has gotten in the past couple years - and #2 Safety [safety is an issue everywhere – the difference with Costa Rica is most are reporting that RARELY are the people being caught] and some have asked me to check out what the Nicaragua scene is about]).

I’ve developed some contacts for people that will start leading
Visa Run Tours to San Juan del Sur – Isla Ometepe and Granada,
plus someone considering starting
Exploratory Tours for Moving to Nicaragua
Transportation and Assistance at the Border 
and others that are offering other services.

TOURISM and
FACEBOOK
MARKETING


One thing I'm GREAT at is Marketing•Promotions•Getting the word out having been doing it for OVER 20 years (I have even won awards for it!!)!!! 
And now I'm also doing my FAV - Facebook Marketing!! 
I create a VERY UNIQUE and MUCH more DETAILED approach to it than I've EVER seen!! 

I'm also available to assist you in starting or updating your Vacation Rental Property or Hotel
(I did that with a Puerto Vallarta related business for over 12 years!  Helped over 100 properties get up and running and with promotions!!)

What's going to make YOU stand out amongst the THOUSANDS of Costa Rica Hotels, Villa and Condo choices people have?  Especially since tourism is slowing down!!!
(note, I do NOT help people with rentals/finding clients specifically!  I get you set up with MANY different options to promote your property and it's up to you to work it!!)
