Well Steve, let's let people make up their own minds. All the current information which you and your friends are trying to cover up is there, right on the internets. The hostility, the crime, the poverty, the land mines, the drug cartels. Oh, and not to mention the hostility betwee Nicaragua and Honduras, and Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The Nicaraguans don't want you there you dumb ass, there is now a coalition between the two factions. Looks like you're gonna be stuck with a whole bunch of property that is freakin worthless, you are headed down the wrong trail .
But good, I hopr you do get burned, which you will.
Sacha, go give him a blow job, I mean, that's what you do, right?

Margie is correct, go to nicanet dot org/ and see for yourseves the truth about Nicaragua, also go th US State Department. Sacha, Margie Pargie is a Mexican citizen, that's why they live in Mexico.

You're obviosly a friend of Margie since you know her citizen status. I checked Margies website and have refrained from posting over there. I noticed nobody really posts there except for Margie and a friend or two. Are you just trying to bring people over to debate on that site so you have something to do?

Shall we get into the State Dept. and Human Righs records regarding Mexico? I grew up doing Baja trips with mom/dad then on my own and have been pulled over by the police many times and taken for lots o cash. Was doing drive to Cabo at night and had my tirers blown out by banditos and had a face-off...almost lost my life. Regardless, I still travel Baja and recommend it to friends...just recommend No Night driving.
Kindly back off on the criticism of Nicaragua. I've paid no $ to police here and have not been harrassed by bandits at all.

Okay let's try this again, I think I was banned. I have dual citizenship, thanks Florie for clarifying that. Obvously, this site will not allow URLS, so for those of you who are interested,you are on your own looking these things up.
1. Nicaragua is having an energy crisis.
2. Nicaragua is having a water crisis.
3. Development & Tourism will ultimately have a negative impact, both on a socio, economic
and environmental level.
4. Land issues concerning indigenous people of Nicaragua are only starting to be resolved.
5. I love Nicaragua, but Nic has neither had the resources or funding to create eco-sensitive areas, thus, a horrendous land grab by foreigners, unchecked.

Yes, by all means, please google in the State Department if you are coming to Mexico. You will never get the scoop from Travel Agents, Realators, or even the San Diego Union.
You will get accurate reports from FNS, from New Mexico State University. You will have to google that in also, they will send yuou free emails.
And finally, I am not putting Nicaragua down, I just hate to see her exploited when she hasn't even had the funds or resources to establish eco-sensitive areas, and the land grabbers know it, and are drooling like a pack of wolves.
Wait one more thing -- so what if noone goes to my blog? Shite, I wasn't there for months myself.

Here is an excellent article, you will have to google in alterinfos.org: "Latin America-The Sunset of US Empire Building:The Rise Of A New Latin America", by Michael Hogan.
It's what's happening, no paranoia, it is happening.

And Baja is ecofriendly? There are two eco friendly resorts in NIcaragua, Morgan's Rock and Los Cardones. The beauty is we get to learn from our over-exploited counterpart, Mexico.
Margie, time to go away and live in your environmentally unfriendly home in Baja, which was way overdeveloped 20 years ago. You never answered about being solar, eco-friendly and all that. You've been intense about the enviro-killing conservatives on this forum, so I figured you'd have answered quickly and honestly about that one. Go ahead.

Excuse me Steve, but once again you are misinformed. Not counting recent additions, 93 Steve, NINETY THREE areas are protected in Mexico, that is about 6 % of land in Mexico.
And, I can proudly say that we saved the Osprey, the Ignacio Lagoon and there will be no Jaqpanese run Salt Mines in San Quintin, thanks to the help of Bobby Kennedy Jr. and the NRDC.
