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

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?


in Mexico by @digitaldiva | 1d 1 day ago | 3 comments

Iโ€™m curious whether anyone drove to Mexico instead of flying and used their car down there. Iโ€™ve heard bad stories of people driving down there but not sure I believe them. How safe is it to drive through rural areas, and to park in cities? It would be cool to have the car to explore while there.

Are restaurants, cafes and malls working in Mexico City taking into account COVID situation?

 

in Mexico by @thateverdmitriy | 2d 1 day ago | 1 comment

I am planning to travel to Mexico City next weekend and stay for 7-10 days there. I wonder if cafes, stores and other places like these work? And if cafes work, do they work as usual or only for take away&delivery? Will be very thankful if someone can help here.

Which EU country doesn't charge social security for freelancers


in Luxembourg by @colin_o_keeffe | 3d 2 days ago | 1 comment

As far as I'm aware Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium charge both sides (employee and employer) of the statutory social security pension if you are a freelancer. Are there countries that don't make this a requirement? It is crippling having to pay out upwards of 19% of your income into a state pension.

How to find accomodation in Las Palmas, Canary Islands

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?

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay in Portugal?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 1mo 1 month ago | 4 comments

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

How do I get Travel/Medical Insurance for Portugal for visa application from Australia?


in Portugal by @jonathanpoh | 1mo 1 month ago | 5 comments

I'm preparing my Portuguese D7 long-term visa application and one of the required documents is proof of travel insurance with medical coverage. However, as an Australian citizen, if put that as my country of residence in many travel insurance companies' quick quote forms, I'm unable to get ANY insurance coverage at all because of the current travel ban out of Australia, and the Australian govt's 'Do Not Travel' advice to ALL countries. I know that Aussies are applying for, and successfully getting visas from the Portuguese Consulate here, so where and how are they fulfilling this insurance requirement if insurers aren't selling any coverage? Does anybody know or have any ideas?

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?
