    Wow - I just scrolled through the SJDS facebook page - It is epically sad - Out of 150 some posts, maybe 70+ post is selling bags or mugs or cell phones, 70+ posts are transport, apartment or restaurant related, and maybe 1 that has something associated to living in SJDS.

    Looks like the MacKays are not really cultivating the page any longer - Heck even some of the ads are from the MacKays themselves for real-estate.

    It doesn't seem like a bad idea for an expat,, some arrangement.
    My experience with Laura showed that it's pretty much a free for all,, whoever gets there first grabs the spoils.

    I'd be more trusting of some established business,, like paying into a kitty at Big Wave Dave's.

    Another place closing at the end of the month - No surprise with all of the light traffic we seen a couple weeks back...


    Had a bit of a conversation from a fellow in Leon who does a daily VLOG on "Da tube" and he also had experiance of people overselling SJDS - But as this fellow aludes too, there is another sucker lined up for the same space to throw their cash down the drain for another couple years

    Like Mr. Tang, perhaps Mr. Carcamo should also "focus on other businesses."

    Just looked back on the history - It appears that all the restaurant equipment and a majority of the furnishings have sold off as well. Originally listed for $699K.

    Really unfortunate - Another reason people should invest in Nica land with eyes wide open - Apparently this place is in Managua.

    They been trying to get out of under it for a few yrs, looking partnerships, you name it. Now stripping it to the walls which is an idiotic move unless there is a problem with the paper. Believe it or not, is some big $ real estate in MGA, and this thing is priced right, think they are down in the 300's now, there are buyers too. Something is wrong.

    They sell off everything not nailed down, haul ass, leave a watchman, will be a squatter camp within weeks, never be able to get them out.

    Got to be lot more to this story than meets the eye.

    Broken dreams again

    The brewery stuff they want $250K and will give you 5% if you are the seller.

    250K is really pricy - But it is in the country now.

    Just boggles the mind

    So lets say it was "Normal" times

    You could hope at 50% occupancy (for the year) at lets say $100/night

    That is $127000 a year of income $350 a day

    Today I doubt 20% occupancy and $50 a night.

    Now a 30 yr mortgage (and to do this you would need a US line of credit of $549K, almost 800K cdn)

    That would set up back $3,000 or so a month in payments. or about $100 to $120 a day just for your leverage.

    Throw in $100 to $150 a day in staff

    Another 100 a day on power

    Another 20 or so on water

    Assorted bribes kick backs and favors

    This place is still a money loosing venture at 1/2 the price... and if things were "normal"
