    Well, $200 /night with all the added value certainly is better than his rack rate of $500. Unless I am mis-understanding the pricing and that is just the flight from MGA

    Looks like you get golf, spa, breakfast, and round trip flights from Managua included with the Emerald package. " Rates start at $769 USD for a four-night minimum, based on room category and availability. " They must have a private plane set up. Can't see them allowing their guests into the La Costena waiting room.

    Includes the room too, right? That is what I understood.

    You can pay that much at a few places in Granada.

    Played around on the website -- can't book the package there, only by calling or emailing. My guess is that the US$769 is a PER PERSON price; packages usually are!

    A couple of inclusions in the package:

    Two rounds of golf OR two 60-minute spa treatments OR one of each

    Two 200ml bottles of FDC ExtraLite and "5 years". Holy Zeus, that's like maybe 4 cocktails. And ExtraLite? SMH. El cheapo booze in tiny quantities!

    ETA: place is sold-out over US T-giving weekend.

    great! even more ways to see Nicaragua without actually having to see any of Nicaragua!

    Post the same picture from your all inclusive resort and then just retitle the caption every few months on instagram....."having a great time in mexico!" "having a great time in portugal!" "amazing time here in the caribbean" "wish i could stay longer here in brazil!" "really got a taste of the local culture here in Nicaragua!"

    not like anyone will know....all your friends resorts look the same anyway.
    plus you dont have to deal with those annoying things like poverty or those pesky locals and their dirty food while on your luxury vacation.





    is that 769 per night? or 769 for the 4 nights minimum?

    Completely agree. Resorts follow closely behind casinos in extractive business practices. Ship people in on buses with tinted mirrored windows, keep them drunk, and work them for every buck they brought with them. Great way to turn a surrounding community against tourists.
