A region with plenty to offer now – and getting better. That’s how Allen and Renee Tuleck feel about the burgeoning Trujillo Beach in Honduras.
With a new free trade agreement between Canada and the Central American country, and a cruise ship terminal set to open on the beach in December, the Edmonton couple invested in the promising snowbird escape.
The Tulecks bought a lot and plan to build a 1,700-square-foot home at a new master-planned resort called Njoi Trujillo Beach Residences.
“It just made too much sense to us not to invest,” says Allen, who works in the construction department for Macs’ convenient stores.
He says the cruise ship should bring about 10,000 people to the area each day, which will prove an economic boost for the region and add value to resorts like Njoi Trujillo.
This resort is about a three-minute walk to 8,000 feet of white sandy beaches and boasts views of the ocean and the area’s stunning mountainscape.
The Tulecks’ lot has both. “The view is spectacular,” says Allen. “You get the sunset and the sunrise from the same location.”
Those who buy at the resort have a five-year building commitment in the gated community that offers 24hour security. Homes are offered in models that range from 1,200 to 2,200 square feet.
The Tulecks plan to use their second home to escape Edmonton’s frosty winter months. Allen says he and Renee hope to trying water sports on the ocean and taking part in hiking trips through area jungles.
“We want to see what’s out there,” he says.
The area’s “natural beauty” is a major draw for many of the Canadians who have flocked to the region, says Gino Santarossa, a managing partner of Njoi Trujillo. “It’s just stunning.”
The region features a pristine bay surrounded by environmentally protected national parks and natural hot springsthat are within 20 minutes of the resort.
