Temperature gets hotter… Clean freshwater is becoming an increasingly precious supply and very unevenly distributed in the world… Electrical power is also scarce and expensive …
Invest in this paradise island… Zopango Orchids Island totally off the grid and self-sufficient for energy and water, located in Asese Bay… (Part of the huge Lake Nicaragua or Cocibolca, also called the Sweet Sea, the largest lake of Central America).

Zopango Orchids Island is a small archipelago that includes the main island and two small islets very close by, right next to the Asese Peninsula (refer to map in the pictures section), at 38 meters above sea level. Zopango Orchids Island is just 1 ½ hours away from Managua international airport and 30 minutes away from Granadas colonial center.

To get to Zopango Orchids Island, there are two options:
1/ 15 min drive from Granada center to Marina Cocibolca (by Asese harbor), which has yachts, restaurants, a gas station, secured parking 24/7… & then 15 mn by boat from Marina Cocibolca to Zopango Orchids Island.

2/ 25 min drive from Granada center to El Rayo dock (end of the Asese Peninsula dirt road) & 5 min by boat.

It is important to mention that Granada, oldest colonial town of Central America, is located in the dry zone of Nicaragua and has never been concerned by any earthquakes, floods, cyclones or tornadoes.

Zopango Orchids Island  loved and protected by the owner, a French Landscape Decorator who turn this island into a private botanical garden, is a real sustainable tropical paradise.

The island has the largest sandy beach area of all the islands of the Bay, with more than 200 sq. meters and a large sundeck with diving board.
