What are the benefits of developer “sponsored” tours?

In your search for the perfect piece of “paradise” what makes the search easier? How do you get a feel for the country? The people and the culture? Can you overcome the language barrier? Are there incentives for expats to move to this country? Is Belize the right place? Or is Nicaragua the paradise you’re looking for?

Some developers are offering “fly-n-buy programs, some offer tours or discovery packages and still others will provide you with the wine-n-dine level with a personal site visit. The long and short of it is that there is no better way to make a decision than to go visit; and these tours are very rarely like the high-pressure time share 90 minute tour that everyone dreads!

A few of the developers I work with here at SkipJack offer some very cool ways to see and feel the country in which they are located. For example, Orchid Bay in Belize has a very cool trip for 3 days at an unbelievable price that includes your hotel and meals…all you have to do is get there…they even pick you up at the airport. Obviously, you will have the opportunity to tour the property, but they also do a beach cookout and a river trip to see some of the ancient Maya ruins.

In Nicaragua, Seaside Mariana offers discovery packages, but in December they are hosting a 4 day event in Managua that will cover every aspect of living, moving, or investing in real estate on the Pacific coastline of Nicaragua.

Going directly across the Caribbean Sea to the wonderful country of The Dominican Republic, Cristal Beach Resort (a 5 star condominium/hotel development) they offer the traditional fly-n-buy program and will rebate your airfare up to $1,000 when you decide to buy there.

All in all, each of these programs will enable you to go see the country and get a good feel for the country, the culture and the development before you buy. Generally, these trips are dirt cheap as well…there are two other options…sign up for any one of these upcoming webinars to get a good preliminary idea online…and the other is to use SkipJack’s private scouting service.
