    Re: Paying overage fine

    Was this at the border or was this at the Managua office? I prefer to go to Managua because they don't seem to care as much. I really don't like dealing with the Nicaraguan border authorities at...

    Re: Paying overage fine

    As far as I understand, it's $3/day over plus a flat $10 charge. Do you know if that's correct or not?

    Re: Paying overage fine

    I strongly dislike interacting (especially when money is involved) with the government agencies here, especially immigration. They know they hold your fate in their hand and if they want to make life...

    Re: Paying overage fine

    Thanks. I figured as much, but I've met a lot of people who went to Managua first and I thought there might have been a reason.

    Does anyone know if there is still a BAC ATM on the Nicaraguan side...

  7. Re: Looking for the name of a bar on Big Corn

    I went digging through some photos to see if I could find any. Unfortunately, there are just two that show part of the hotel and the beach.

    Paying overage fine

    Years ago I made a thread detailing my experiences paying my fine for staying 6 months over my visa.

    Well, if you thought I would have learned - think again.

    I'll be heading to the States via...
  9. Re: Looking for the name of a bar on Big Corn

    Now that I think of it, the beach that was right next to the hotel had a beached boat on it the word Adventure painted on the back.

    Also, the hotel had Dolphins on the upper balcony fence.
  10. Re: Looking for the name of a bar on Big Corn

    It was 100% on Big Corn. It might not have been called the dolphin. It was two stories and on the beach side of the road.
  11. Looking for the name of a bar on Big Corn

    Roughly 10 years ago I went to big and little corn - and unfortunately - haven't been back since.

    On Big Corn, I stayed for nearly a week in a little place called the Dolphin Hotel (might not be...

    I remember reading the country didn't have any storage facilities to keep the Pfizer vaccine.

    Vaccine availability

    I understand that the government is only handing out vaccines to citizens and residents, of which I'm neither.

    Anyone have any guesses, ideas, or info on when this may change and non-residents...

    Residency

    I've never been concerned about residency, but it seems like a good option at this point in time.

    I don't want to invest 30k and I'm not over 45. Can I still get residency based on my online...

    I remember Nicaraguans telling me they would do a series of anti parasite drugs every 6 or 8 months. I know some people seem to get them bad while others have little to no issue with it.

    From my view point, for what ever it is worth, Granadinos have many aspects working against them. First, they do not receive the same education level as many other Nicas. There are no universities of...
