I love Nicaragua. It’s a beautiful country, with lots to see and do. I first went some 20 years ago and enjoyed it so much that I purchased the teak & avocado parcel with Patrick and Vida Verde Agroforestry to gain my residency there. 

Patrick and I cover a lot of great information in this episode. Don’t miss it!
