Nicaragua’s history has been culturally diverse, politically complex, and all too often ravaged by natural disasters. Yet despite facing adversity in the past, the country and its people have demonstrated an indefatigable resilience of character and spirit, and move ever forward.
Tourism is an important foundation of Nicaragua’s bright future, and an industry that is poised to bring tremendous advances to the nation’s economy, cities, and transportation systems. It also has the potential to adversely impact Nicaragua’s historically unspoiled environment and inimitable culture, if not planned for and managed appropriately.
Local & National Nicaragua Community
At Pelican Eyes Resort, we take our role in the local and national community very seriously. It is our goal to be an active, vibrant, welcoming, and responsible member of the community of San Juan del Sur, and to extend this community with others by sharing the tremendous beauty, history, and adventure our country provides.
Fundacion A. Jean Brugger is a Non-Profit Organization established in 2000, whose mission is to create and promote programs in education and community development in San Juan del Sur, such as Student Sponsorship, Community Social Service, Teacher Sponsorship and School Supplies Distribution.
They have enable over 60 students graduate from college, helped implement 25 community service plans, sponsored 10 teachers and delivered over 3000 packets of school supplies.
Along with the sponsorship program Fundacion is proud to have an “Ancianos” (Senior Citizens) Program and a Baseball Camp Project several times every year.
