      PINK PEARL ISLAND is a 2.5 acre private tropical Caribbean island, located approximately 3 miles from mainland off of the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua, Central America. The island is surrounded with turquoise water and powder white sand. Its coconut trees and native fauna are protected from high seas by surrounding reefs and outlying islands. This Caribbean coast of Nicaragua is often referred to as 'the undiscovered Caribbean' and the country as a whole 'the next Costa-Rica' with great investment opportunities. Pink Pearl Island is situated among a group of coral islands, which have to be the most attractive, desirable destination in Nicaragua. The sparkling blue ocean is scuba virgin water with pristine reefs, making it an ideal location for diving and snorkeling. Pink Pearl Island is currently mainly used as a personal retreat; it is however full set up to operate as a successful tourist business. The island would be an excellent location to set up the first Dive shop in the area, or indeed a sport fishing business. Kayaking, fishing, snorleking, swimming at the white sand beach, all included. We offer fresh lobsler, fish and jumbo shrimp meals

      PINK PEARL ISLAND is a 2.5 acre private tropical Caribbean island, located approximately 3 miles from mainland off of the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua, Central America. The island is surrounded with turquoise water and powder white sand. Its coconut trees and native fauna are protected from high seas by surrounding reefs and outlying islands. This Caribbean coast of Nicaragua is often referred to as 'the undiscovered Caribbean' and the country as a whole 'the next Costa-Rica' with great investment opportunities. Pink Pearl Island is situated among a group of coral islands, which have to be the most attractive, desirable destination in Nicaragua. The sparkling blue ocean is scuba virgin water with pristine reefs, making it an ideal location for diving and snorkeling. Pink Pearl Island is currently mainly used as a personal retreat; it is however full set up to operate as a successful tourist business. The island would be an excellent location to set up the first Dive shop in the area, or indeed a sport fishing business. Kayaking, fishing, snorleking, swimming at the white sand beach, all included. We offer fresh lobsler, fish and jumbo shrimp meals

Guest AccessYou can use the terrace, kitchen and the living room Interaction with GuestsI can help you with tourism informacion. I work with the NGO FADCANIC, who run a natural reserve in Wawashang and Kahka Creek. You are welcome to visit these places. The NeighborhoodSafe neighborhood, with nice restaurants in the area. In the center of the city. Getting AroundWalking or taking a taxi. the taxi cost 12 C$ Other Things to NoteBluefields is a poor city, and there is no drinking water network. The bath room don't have running water all day. Sometimes you will have to shower with a bucket, like most Nicaraguans. if you need a room with comfort as in the United States, with hot shower, I recommend the hotel oasis.
