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

Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of?

 

in Germany by @clara | 3d 2 days ago | 0 comments

Hi everybody. I live and work in Germany and want to go to Canary Islands for 6 months to work from there. I'm going to keep my current job, just change the "home" in the home office part of things. Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of? I was reading about becoming a residence after 183 days, thus having to pay taxes there plus my employer having to register there. Does anybody know how it works exactly? Thanks a lot!

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?


by @dannybooboo | 10d 10 days ago | 0 comments

I love living in walkable areas of town. I can always find them. But now I'm wondering where in the world are the most walkable places? I'm imagining walk streets (no cars), zoning allowing both business and residential, parks or beaches ,etc.

Anyone up to explore some city which is kinda virus safe?


in Bangkok, Thailand by @germanrobert | 18d 18 days ago | 2 comments

Hello World!

I'm an experienced Digital Nomad and after being in Lockdown in Bangkok and Germany for one year I would like to team up with someone to visit a new place. Or just doing some exchange about what destinations would be interesting currently.

I take the virus seriously and still I think we can still be able to take our life in our own hands. So I'm aiming for cities/countries which are not in full lockdown, are not too complicated about immigration (I'm looking at you Thailand, your state quarantine costs like 1k USD and is basically a prison) and is also rather safe regarding the virus. I tend to stick for rather big cities and like culture. I'm not a beach or nature person. I'm pretty flexible about the money topic.

Hi, we are trying to find a house to rent for 2-3 persons near Las Palmas for 4-5 months at the moment and it seems to be almost impossible except through Airbnb which is super expensive. Any advises or local contacts?

Entering Nicaragua with a one way ticket


in Nicaragua by @theunisk | 3yr 3 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 | 5yr 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?
