About Greg Pero


My wife Darlene and I are life long Southern Californians. When we're not slaving away at our jobs and daily routines, we love to travel, explore new places and relax/decompress from our normal lives. My lifelong passion (obsession) for surfing led us to explore vacation destinations where we could relax, explore, enjoy various activities and i could easily fulfill my surfing passion.

In February 2014 we visited Nicaragua and Hacienda Iguana for the first time and we both immediately fell in love. It met all the criteria, easily accessible world-class waves, safe-relaxing environment, amazing beauty and enough activities to keep my non-surfing partner happy.

At Darlene's suggestion, we inquired about owning a piece of this Nicaraguan paradise. One thing led to another and in March 2014, we purchased a 1/4 acre lot - located a very short distance from the Colorado's surf spot. In May 2014, we broke ground and construction of our Casita was completed in December 2014. We anticipate the completion of the landscaping and addition of a private pool to be completed in early 2015.

With each visit we continue to be amazed at the beauty, explore and discover new things, gain better understanding of the culture, make new friends, surf my brains out and reaffirm our love for this little piece of Central American paradise.

We look forward to sharing our little 'home away from home' with you.

Can't wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about my experience staying there. I was there for two weeks and wish I could have stayed on!

Everything about the experience was beyond expectation! The house itself is beautiful and very well appointed. It has a wonderful 'flow' to it. The bed and linens were SUPER comfy! (Sometimes TOO comfy ;-) the kitchen is well stocked with cutlery and cooking utensils. Wifi was very reliable and was able to stream reliably any time I wanted. The rooms have AC, but I found I never needed to use it as the fan was more than adequate.

The property manager Robert and his wife Olga, were SUPER helpful and VERY attentive. One evening Olga arranged for oysters to be delivered right to my door! They were delicious!! And the kind lady who delivered them was good enough to open them for me (Thank Goodness!!) If I got bored, Olga always had a solid recommendation on the surrounding area and places I might like to see. I have never been SO pampered!!

I went to the Spa twice while there and had the MOST incredibly relaxing massages. I would say that this is a 'MUST DO' and should NOT be missed! Both times I went, I left feeling like a bowl of relaxed Jello! When I return to the area (and I will be returning:-) That Spa will be my first stop! I miss it already.

A car isn't really necessary, as bikes and golf carts make puttering around the grounds easy.

Plenty of restaurants in the area, which is always a bonus for me, and an afternoon 4:00 pick up volleyball game on the beach, promptly became my dinner time entertainment! LOVED IT. People were SO VERY friendly, and I absolutely relished in the community type of atmosphere! If you go, be sure to hit the beach bar and say hello to Lorraina one of the bartenders there. Her smile is infectious and always quick to ask about your day and make you feel like you've known her your entire life. Never did I want for anything! I always felt very safe and I am a solo female traveller, so that's a HUGE bonus for me. I would highly recommend this property and area for a family with kids. The kids would have a blast!

If I could give 6 stars I would.

Already planning my return to the house, and my new found 'family' :-)

Kudos to everyone, you're truly all over the top!!

Thank you so much for allowing me to drop in on your little slice of heaven!

Playa Colorado New Years 2017

  • 5 of 5

After a mix up with the property, the Owner and Property MGR were able to get my family squared away. They were very helpful and accommodating. We absolutely loved our time at Playa Colorado. The Villa was outstanding. Beautiful views, close proximity to the beach, neat, clean ample rooms, and maid service. It was a fantastic experience and I would certainly recommend Playa Colorado and any of Mr. Pero's properties at Iguana to anyone looking for getaway spot.

Beautiful Spot!

  • 4 of 5

Great casita in Hacienda Iguana with a lovely location on a quiet road. The house is beautiful and feels quite spacious and was more than enough room for our family of four. The grounds, including the pool and palapa, are peaceful and very well maintained. The kitchen could use a re-stocking (not enough plates or bowls, no veggie peeler, etc.) but otherwise, we found all we needed for a week long stay.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent nearly 3 weeks here in July/August 2017 and could not have been happier. Getting to the development to/from Managua takes about 3 hours but the transportation using their recommended service was efficient, comfortable, and friendly. We stopped off in Rivas to pick up provisions as a major grocery store is about an hour away from Hacienda Iguana; a smaller grocery store is available within the development. Inquire about surfboard / golf cart rental and local food delivery options. Once there, we enjoyed many days lounging around the casita pool, reading in the palapa, watching the howler monkeys leap from tree to tree, eating (and drinking ;) at the beachfront restaurant, walking along the beach, surfing, and playing golf. People there were super friendly. Didn't want to come home!

The property was the perfect size for the two of us and had everything we needed - well stocked kitchen, fresh bottled water, comfortable king bed and linens, air conditioning, and barbecue. As we quickly ran out of our own reading material, the casita's mini-library of page-turners was a welcome touch. The property's back up power supply was generally effective in picking up the electrical loads during the nearly daily power outages. Roku-equipped TVs and a strong wifi ensured we could tap into our Amazon and Netflix streaming services for entertainment.

Communication was prompt, informative, and inspired confidence. On-site management responded quickly when minor issues/questions arose. We loved Nicaragua (spent several days in Granada), its people, and the breathtaking natural beauty. Planning our next vacation at Casita Pero!

Beautiful property - great neighbors!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 3. The location was very convenient to the beach and local restaurants. The property was beautifully landscaped with a crew of people committed to keeping the grounds pristine. We met our neighbors (who are locals), who provided lots of recommendations, help, and one even cooked pizzas for us 2 nights!
