“…’When these projects that are being executed finish being developed in 2019, they will add up to an investment of over US $200 million and at the same time all of that luxury infrastructure will strengthen San Juan del Sur as a privileged sun and beach destination in Latin America’ assured Granja.”

“… One of those projects is El Cielo, which is 60% complete. Roger Valerio Moncada, general manager of the project, stated that the residential complex consists of the construction of eight houses and two buildings, with eight apartments each.
