Hello! I would like to work from Nica, but only for a couple of weeks- would need at least 3-4 hours of quality internet per day, and am wondering if you have recommendations about where to go, where to stay, (somewhere that would have good day trips!) I'm also a yoga teacher and would love to offer some classes while I was there. Any recommendations much appreciated!

Hi! New poster here.

Is teaching in Nicaragua a viable option for a retiree? I'm thinking English, Math, or any Science as I'm a degreed engineer. I would not be looking for a ton of $ as I don't think it would be there anyways. Is it realistic to think that you could cover your living expenses there if you live "close to the earth?" Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi everyone,

How bad is the weather in Nicaragua the first half of October? We were thinking about spending two weeks between Leon and/or Granada, Matagalpa, and Omtepe (with a 2 1/2 year old). I know it is the rainy season, but what does this really mean? Is it typical to rain just in late afternoon for an hour? Or rain throughout the whole day? Any experience with this part of the country during that time of the year?

We can't really change our travel dates, but can still change the location…

My Nikon DSLR has developed a fault while I've been away, and I'm really hoping there might be somewhere I can go in Managua (or elsewhere in Nicaragua) to have it looked at. Any suggestions much appreciated!

1week in Nica

Hello

I'm going to costa Rica for 2 weeks followed by Nica for 1 week. I'm going to isla de ometepe (3days), but then I need advice to choose for Corn island, Léon or san juan del sur. Corn island looks like heaven, but is it worth the flight for 2 or 3 days stay?

How much would a taxi cost from the border Los Chiles at costa rica to San Jorge in Nica?

thankyou!

My family (My wife and I and our two kids ages 6 and 8) just returned from Costa Rica and Nicaragua. We definitely used all the advice that the people on these forums gave us. If anyone has a question about traveling with kids in tow, let me know. We had a great time and we used only public transportation during our 7 weeks in Central America. We traveled to Granada, Ometepe, Leon, Matagalpa, and Jiquilillo in Nicaragua and we hit Manuel Antonio, Samara, Brasalito, Arenal, Puerto Viejo de…

I will be landing in Managua at 11:30pm. I am staying in a place near the Roberto Huembes Market. 1) Is it safe to take a taxi at that time? 2) How much should a taxi cost from the airport to the market?

Thanks!

Hey! I'm looking for a little advice on my 1 week trip to Nicaragua in November. I'm a very experienced world traveler, and I speak a little Spanish. I know for sure that I want to go to Leon, but after that I don't know if it would be better to go to Matagalpa or Las Penitas and Granada. I'm adventurous/outdoorsy. Not big on partying or tourist traps. Which of the two itineraries below would you recommend? Thank you!! :D

Day 1 - Land in Managua. Bus to Leon.
Day 2 - Leon volcano boarding.
Day 3…
