August 17 2015

Corporacion del Sur, S.A., a member of Pellas Development Group – developer of Nicaragua’s first luxury resort, Mukul Beach, Golf & Spa at Guacalito de la Isla – in association with the Nicaragua Tourism Board, have announced the opening of Costa Esmeralda Airport. 

The new single terminal airport, built five miles north of Guacalito de la Isla in the department of Rivas, will begin service in November 2015 for international private jets and commercial flights from both Managua’s Augusto C. Sandino International Airport and Costa Rica’s Liberia International Airport. 

The airport will not only compliment the luxury Mukul Beach, Golf & Spa, located at Guacalito, but will also open up numerous other locations along the Emerald Coast of ‪‎Nicaragua‬.
“The arrival of Costa Esmeralda Airport will introduce the country to a global audience seeking new adventures and serve as a direct route to our majestic coast,” said Don Carlos Pellas, owner, Pellas Development Group, “It will reduce transfer time from Managua and Costa Rica, supporting Nicaragua’s flourishing tourism, which is essential to the country’s development.”
