It is some time since I drove along the main road of Juan Dolió but on the same side as Metro Country Club a huge housing development seems to be taking place. That seems strange as there is much land and there are partially built apartment blocks on the other side of the road closer to the beach. In Guayacanes there are many desirable old beach side homes for sale, I wonder if there is a problem with titles or with delinquency.
Is this rather sleepy town about to have a change??
Re: Juan Dolio
I believe you are talking about across from the turn to Popular bank. That large piece of property I think is beings developed as a club type community. The land was cleared during 2022 and they started in earnest about 6-8 months ago and planted the two lines of palm trees. I noticed a couple of weeks ago, at the very far end of that line of trees, there seems to be an security entrance being built. Its too far back for me to really see especially since since I make my left hand turn turn there while heading for SD.
Why there... if you were to drive about a block past the bank they are coming up to opening day on two large condo towers.That project was started during covid and is just about done. Not on the water, and I suppose limited visibility of the water since the new tower built by Hemingway blocks most of the view. I inquired about the availably of apps while it was being buyildt a year ago and I was told it was all sold out. That's not unusual as they were priced for someone that can't afford Hemingway and selling 300% lower than prices at Hemingway.
Re: Guayacanes. I usually buy my fish along the strip closest to the water. MANY of those houses have title issues. Last year when renovations started on the large parcel of public beach (that looks fantantasic) a good deal of "home owners got bad news. Those homes have charm...butI would think twice about living in that area.
