Travellers looking for an idyllic sun and beach holiday may not consider Nicaragua as a possible destination, but that would be an error. The country has been named one of the best tourist destinations in the world thanks to its many attractions, including Barceló Montelimar Resort. With over 8 kilometers of virgin coastline, this luxurious hotel is spread over 300,000 square meters of lush natural landscapes. The facilities at the Montelimar hotels offer first class luxuries, such as naturally shaped swimming pools, trails under the coconut palms, thatched palapas for relaxing and elegant restaurants. Above all, Montelimar beach hotels offer privacy and seclusion. Located just a hour by car from Managua, the country’s capital, Montelimar is a refuge against worldly cares. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s isolated. Montelimar hotels offer Wi-Fi, meeting rooms and restaurant services that make business and social gatherings run smoothly. Wedding and honeymoon planners assist couples so that everything is perfect, and families will love the children’s entertainment.
Curious guests at Montelimar hotels might wonder about the origins of this unspoiled paradise. The area was once the estate of the Somoza family, the dynastic leaders who ruled Nicaragua for 44 years. The Somozas obtained the land after declaring war to Germany during World War II and confiscating the land from its German owners. Nicaragua and Germany never discounted itself, leading to what the Somoza family really wanted was the property of this beautiful stretch of Pacific beach. The last Somoza fled the country in 1979, escaping from the violent protests against the family’s oppressive leadership. He is said to have escaped from the private landing strip on the estate itself. Civil strife and the bad intervention of the United States roiled the country after Somoza’s departure, but all the time was resolved later with the democratic elections of 1990. Peace has allowed the country to build a reputation as a premier tourist destination. Montelimar Beach is a fine example of its success. A few reminders of the powerful Somozas remain intact, such as its former mansion, which has become an elegant casino open 24 hours a day at weekends.
Most tourists spend time relaxing in their hammock, Admiring the golden sunsets on the sea and swim among the sparkling waves that break on the white sandy beaches. The hotel staff are ready to help visitors at all times, who can enjoy sporting activities such as surfing, boogie boarding, volleyball and football. Guests can also ride horseback riding, play tennis and giant chess, to name a few activities. Golfers can take a course that accepts beginners and experts alike. Sports and relaxation are the ideal combination for a perfect holiday on Montelimar Beach.
