Hola a todos,
Living and running a business (<snip>) in Granada, Nicaragua. We have received a lot of questions from guests and friends asking about current situation in the country, we've also seen a lot of fake & alarming news spreading on social medias so here is a quick update.
As some of you may know, contestations started last week when Nicaragua's president reformed social security. Last Friday and Saturday there was a social uproar leading to protests during the days, and movements…
Hi all, I'm a Dutch girl who is on a organised trip day after tomorrow. Suddenly I saw that my PP expires in 4 months and that 6 months of validy are an requirement for entering nica (for NLDS). What do you guys advise? Shall I try it? Or do you have some experience with this situation? Hope to hear from you. Greetings!
My partner and I have our first international backpacking trip planned (from Canada) planned for Nicaragua in 1 week. We are set to be in the country from April 29th-May 11th. I have just heard of the protests happening now, I am VERY scared and worried to travel now? Should I be? What would you all recommend? I feel very unsettled.....
I am considering buying a ticket for a trip to Nicaragua, leaving in two or three days. Flight prices are not that bad for last second. Looking to stay 6-8 days.
Would not have much time to plan, but I am a spur of the moment type of person. I did something in Guatemala many years ago. Did not even have a hotel booked when I arrived. Is Nicaragua an easy place to do such a thing, with no itinerary or place to stay? Probably cannot fly to the Corn Islands at the last second. Traveling solo, I…
I am spending 1.5 weeks Nicaragua (flying into Managua)so any advice about the best way to spend this time in Nicaragua would be great (into the nature and experiences - not the 'party' ;)
BUT as well, I will be travelling onwards to Utila, Honduras and am wondering what is the best way to get there (and from which city in Nicaragua would be best to depart?)
I have about a week once my internship in Sarapiqui finishes to travel a bit and may go to Nicaragua cos its cheaper than Costa Rica
- What are the Solentiname Islands like? Are they worth a visit if I only have a week, do they compare to Ometepe?
Am thinking of bussing from San Carlos to Managua, then up to Leon for a couple days and then a bus Managua to San Jose and poss stop Granada and San Juan del Sur. But is this too much for 1 week?
Can you recommend the best beaches around San Juan del Sur? Are the ones around Leon nicer? We want to spend a couple of days at either location but not sure which is nicer. We're not huge party animals! :)
Thanks in advance!
Have just searched on the Rome 2 Rio site and found its technically possible to get from San Carlos to Leon in a day by bus
Is this actually the case??? Thought that given east coast Lake Nicaragua is quite remote etc. this may be a tad optimistic?
