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.

Why Greg Pero chose Rivas Department

Casita Pero is a private residence situated in a quiet, shady area on a 1/4 acre lot. Conveniently, located a short walk from the surf spots and the Beach Club Bar/Restaurant. This is not a surf camp nor a condo - plenty of privacy and room to spread out and relax. Modern conveniences such as WiFi, Satellite TV, full kitchen, comfortable beds are right at your fingertips and additional services (boat trips, non-surfing activities, massage, etc.) are available upon request.

Wonderful casita to stay at Hacienda Iguana!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the privateness and the pool was a huge bonus! All appliances were in good working order. Very close to Pili's beach club and the beach!

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!

Great house! A little oasis.

  • 5 of 5

The Pero Casita is a beautiful and well equipped house - had everything we needed and was the perfect size for our family of four. The yard, pool, and palapa are lovely, and we appreciated the games and yoga mats, as well! It really felt like a little oasis, both inside and out. Pool was impeccably, zealously maintained every day :)

As advertised, it is an easy 2 min walk to the beach - but I have to say I underestimated how much I would miss viewing and hearing the ocean at all times. That said, unless you want or need a much bigger and more expensive house, the only other option at Iguana are the condos at the north end of the beach, and we much preferred our location at the south end. So: tradeoffs! We did enjoy the trees, flowers, and monkeys in our backyard.

Dreamy Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Casita Pero is a gem. Beautifully landscaped, a dreamy pool and palapa, and just a short walk to the world class surf, beautiful beaches, golf, and all the other amenities to be found in this exclusive little hideway in southern Nica. Can't rave enough about it, and we will be back

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are down to the last day of our month long stay at this casita and it is with great regret we have to return to the cold Midwest. This house is clean, spacious and comfortable and well situated to most all the amenities of Hacienda Iguana. The palapa, grounds and pool were our favorite places to hang out and it is a very short walk to the beach, community pool, bar and one restaurant. Other dining is readily available including some restaurants that deliver or you can hire a chef. The property managers are happy to arrange drivers for excursions or help you plan your adventures. We enjoyed Ometepe and a Granada tour as well as Rancho Santana for a special dinner. Highly recommend this casita at Hacienda Iguana!
