What is in the catagory of the $30,000 investment for residency option? we are not of retirement age ( not that it would do us any good, as we cant get pensions paid in that country from here!!.. England oh joy) if we decided that we wanted to stay as permanent residents ( before they change the rules of residency, and the prices) investment seems a good option. Just plain John Wayne seems to be the guy to ask!!! so John, any info gratefully received. We are staying at El Nino's for three days to recoup from flights, but SJDS seems a bit dodgy for two people sightseeing, am I right in thinking ? see you all soon guys, will be heading either corn islands from SJDS or up to Granada which ever is the easiest route,would be nice to meet you....
