A Message from Maria Rueda, President of Grupo Mariana

MANAGUA, Nicaragua, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ --

A new day has dawned at Grupo Mariana.

Construction has begun on the beachfront bungalows at Laya — our boutique hotel in Seaside Mariana's  northernmost neighborhood. After five years of planning and design, our community is finally rising, and Kevin and I couldn't be more excited. We have you to thank for this major turning point. Without the dedication of our current owners and investors, we wouldn't be watching our dreams for a strong Nicaragua come to fruition.

Dedication has always been the key.

Dedication to making a difference in this country is what brought our family to Nicaragua in the first place. Dedication to seeing that difference realized is what will ensure success in the future.

Like many of you, we're a family who divides our time between two countries. Some of you know our story: Kevin and I met while I was attending University in Vancouver, Canada and began our business journey in my home country of Nicaragua in 2004. When we set foot together in Nicaragua, we knew we had found our forever home. This country is fertile ground for the development of dreams. We established a successful business, planted the seeds for long-term growth, created a beautiful family and have been able to live the life we always wanted… beside warm waters with our toes in the sand.

We also keep a home in Canada. Our first son, Kevin Alexander, has some developmental challenges that require a school that can provide specialized attention. The kids and I plan to spend the majority of our time in Canada, close to a school that can give our son the training he needs in an environment that is suited to care for his particular issues. From Canada, I manage Grupo Mariana's financial assets and long-term strategic goals.

Kevin, husband, father, and fearless Grupo Mariana leader, travels between Canada and Nicaragua on a monthly basis, meeting new Seaside and Isla neighbors, strategizing with partners like Wyndham Hotels & Resorts and Nicklaus Design about our upcoming releases, managing operations and construction and hosting our famous Discovery Events.

It's a crazy, two-kid, two-continent life, but we wouldn't have it any other way. The dedication our family has for the country of Nicaragua comes from the source of our blood and the depth of our souls. No matter where we are in the world, Nicaragua will always be our home. We are dedicated nourishing each and every seed we've planted in Nicaraguan soil until the fruit of our labor is plentiful and abundant.

We're looking forward to a fantastic year!
