Nicaragua, any experience?


in Nicaragua by @as11 | 4yr  | 9 comments

Fellow Nomads, I am planning to start a Central America trip from Nicaragua and make my way down, finishing in Ecuador during a 2 month period.

So I want to know if anyone has any experience with Nicaragua, places to stay, internet reliability, safety etc?

I frankly know very little about the country, so would love to hear about your experience!

Thanks,

๐Ÿ‘

This thread is a bit old but Iโ€™ll throw in my two cents! Iโ€™m part of the team at a new coworking and coliving space in San Juan del Sur (we opened our doors on January 1) and have been a big hit ever since, there was definitely a demand for space like ours down here! Hooking up fibre optic internet was a huge game changer and weโ€™ve got and entire backup system for when power does go out. If youโ€™re ever back in the area weโ€™d love to have you!

Hi there,

Iโ€™ve been living in San Juan Del Sur for the past 4 months and I have mixed feelings: on one side, you have amazing beaches and great surf spots, some nice cafรฉs, a large expat community (for the better or the worse), a yoga studio, + many services and products that you may not find in the rest of Nicaraguaโ€ฆ On the other side, it has unfortunately become party / drug town and I think there are too many loud people who arenโ€™t very respectful. Also many foreigners passing through and living here have almost completely obliterated the local and cultural touch of the place. San Juan Del Sur is generally safe and Internet is average (I have a 2 MB connection which is probably the fastest you can have in the whole country).

Since 2013, Iโ€™ve spent about 8 months in Nicaragua. Iโ€™ve worked from many places in the country (Bluefields, San Carlos, Esteli, Matagalpaโ€ฆ) and really liked Jinotepe in the North, but you may feel lonely there if you donโ€™t speak Spanish: I did not meet any foreigners there.

If you have more questions about Nicaragua, feel free to ask.

Iโ€™ve heard good things about Nicaragua and will be staying 1 month in Granada in a few weeks. Can update here again about the city if you want to :slight_smile:
I also recommend the fb group โ€œdigital nomads around the worldโ€ - there were a few threads about Nicaragua.

Hi Tom,

No sadly not, I am in the UK currently. I plan to come to Nicaragua start of August. Are you interested in joining the Based Coworking facility in August? I am in the process of collecting application now, if you were able to spread the work around SJdS that would be great, and for every successful candidate you refer I can give you a discount of your space.

Cheers

Matt

Hi, we are currently in Ecuador. Have been here 3 weeks already and will be leaving in mid March after visiting most of the major towns / cities etc as well as Galapagos Islands. Ping me if you want to know our view of Ecuador. Else weโ€™ll have written a blog post on Quito in a few days, now that we have left there.

Cheers, Paul

Where should I set up my company as a remote worker?


by @beloruchka | 2d 2 days ago | 7 comments

Iโ€™m looking for any recommendations for services or people others have used to get answers on the best place to set up their businesses based on their personal circumstances.

Leaning towards Singapore after a ton of research, but would really like some concrete advice before jumping in.

Appreciate it!

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 11d 11 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

Entering Nicaragua with a one way ticket


in Nicaragua by @theunisk | 3yr 2 years ago | 2 comments

Does anyone have experiencing entering Nicaragua by plane with a one way ticket ? Specifically, I intend to book a ticket via Spirit. I am aware it is mostly airlines that check for onward travel. Does anyone have experience with this ? Flyonward seems to have been getting bad reviews lately. Would a bus ticket to a neighbouring country be enough to convince Spirit ?

How to get from Panama to Nicaragua?


in Nicaragua by @inannavega | 4yr 4 years ago | 2 comments

Iโ€™m spending three months in Columbia and have a plane ticket from there to Panama City. The goal is Granada, Nicaragua. Unfortunately, I will have a bit of luggage on this trip, so Iโ€™m not all that excited about moving around too much by bus. As I will be staying in Central America for the foreseeable future, I will be able to return to Panama. What would you do in Panama if time were limited? Is it worth it just for a day? Should I return later without so much luggage and wait to see Panama until then? Any thoughts?
