  1. Re: People knocking on my door at night time

    Interesting. I've noticed a major uptick in home robberies. People getting desperate perhaps. I had a really nice small appliance lifted from my outside kitchen.
  2. People knocking on my door at night time

    Last night and the night before, someone has knocked on my door very late at night. The neighbors say they've experienced the same and tell me it's theives.

    What would their game/angle be of...

    Re: What Happened to the Right Side Guide?

    Ah. I was about to do a tour with him years ago, but he wanted me to send $800 to him in Puerto Cabezas via western union which - for obvious reasons - I wasn't keen on doing. Not saying he would...

    Re: What Happened to the Right Side Guide?

    Interesting. Was he the same guy running small boat tours from Puerto Cabezas down the coast; stopping at little communities along the way?

    What Happened to the Right Side Guide?

    It's probably been about 10 years now, but when I first started seriously travelling around Nicaragua, there was a guy named Casey who ran a website called 'The Right Side Guide'.

    Anyone know what...

    Re: Nicaraguan 'Sopa'

    What anti parasite medication do you take? In 10 years I've never done a single course of anti-parasite meds.

    Re: Nicaraguan 'Sopa'

    I enjoy it most days, always fun around here. I do suffer from significantly more stomach issues than I ever did back home. Some of it may be due to the heat, but I think a lot of it is due to the...

    Re: Nicaraguan 'Sopa'

    Speaking of left over storage, I've always had a large aversion to the way many nicas store food in the fridge uncovered.

    Re: Nicaraguan 'Sopa'

    I find the beef soups can be downright gross sometimes, even the smell. Very little use of spices or garlic and the oils/fats are never properly emulsified. What's more, for a country that gas...

    Nicaraguan 'Sopa'

    It's coming on 10 years for me in this interesting little country - something I never thought would happen. Either way, here I am.

    To other people who have been here a while, do you like the...

    Re: J & J Vaccine - One and Done?

    The issue with the vaccines, or lack thereof, is the cult like fascination people have had instilled in them. The manufacturers still have emergency use authorization, so if any other type of...

    Re: J & J Vaccine - One and Done?

    The trials never tested how effective they were in stopping the spread, only how effective they were in treating the infection.

    This notion that these vaccines help stop the spread is silly, since...

    Re: J & J Vaccine - One and Done?

    Writing off mRNA vaccine hesitancy as 'anti-vaxx' is dishonest. People mindlessly repeat "I trust the science", as if state selected experts are now the spiritual class/clergy. When they say "I trust...

    Re: Shipping from Costa Rica to Nicaragua

    Great reply.

    Hardly any of the largest retailers ship to Nicaragua. Almost all ship to Costa Rica. It's "just the way it is".

    There are some things I wanted to order but, as if expected, they can't be sent to Nicaragua. I was thinking about getting them sent to a...

    Re: Paying overage fine

    I paid my fine of nearly $700 last week.

    The immigration officer didn't give me any grief. All she asked was whether I had money or not. She did place my stack of 20s in her front pocket. Whether...

    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...

    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

    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...
