Nicaraguan premium tourism
The newest Nicaraguan premium tourist destination launched nearly three years ago.
On the other hand, the country’s upmarket tourism made news last week, when CNN Travel wrote glowingly about Rancho Santana and Mukul, both on the Emerald Coast in southwest Nicaragua.
Both are near the colonial city of Granada to the north, and a few hours from Costa Rica’s Guanacaste Province.
Inaugurated in 2015, Rancho Santana has 2,700 acres of land and two miles of Pacific shoreline, divided into five beaches.
Part of the Auberge Resorts Collection, with 12 properties in the Americas, Mukul started operations in 2013.
The principal owner is Carlo Pellas, Chairman of Pellas Group, with interests in banking, insurance, sugar and rum, as well as tourism.
