Exploring the Retreat and Gym

ECI Development and Dr. Stillman are collaborating to host a powerful retreat in Nicaragua. The retreat focuses on health and wellness, highlighting the importance of silence and reconnecting with nature. Proceeds from the retreat will be used to build a gym on ECI Development's property.

Building a Sustainable Community

Emphasizing the community philosophy, Gr Pacifica prioritizes sustainability, nature, and self-sufficiency. The goal is to create a nature-based community where different worldviews can coexist peacefully. The combination of design perspective and local wisdom creates a powerful synergy, bringing together different approaches for a sustainable lifestyle.

Safety and Crime in Nicaragua

Contrary to common misconceptions, Nicaragua is one of the safest countries in the world. While petty theft is prevalent, violent crime is limited. It is important to be cautious and avoid leaving belongings unattended in public places. Nicaraguans are known for their helpful and kind nature, often assisting others in need. However, theft and robberies of valuable items, such as smartphones, can occur.

Driving in Nicaragua

If you plan to drive in Nicaragua, be prepared for the unique experience of navigating its roads. Mountain roads can be narrow and steep, requiring patience and adaptability. While it may be challenging, driving in a third-world country can also be interesting and rewarding. Exercise caution and follow local driving practices to ensure a safe and enjoyable journey.

Investment Opportunities and Property Ownership

For those seeking investment opportunities outside the United States, Nicaragua offers a great option. Join a freedom-loving community and enjoy the benefits of owning a modern and beautiful beachfront property at an affordable price. Owning property in countries like Nicaragua simplifies the process and grants physical title to the owner, ensuring a secure investment.


In conclusion, traveling to Nicaragua in 2023 can be a safe and rewarding experience. By understanding the truth behind safety concerns, exploring the retreat and gym opportunities, embracing sustainable community living, being aware of safety measures, and considering investment prospects, you can make the most of your trip to this vibrant country. Remember to stay informed, exercise caution, and immerse yourself in the unique culture and natural beauty Nicaragua has to offer.
