    Default Legal age to consume Alcahol in Nica?

    Odd question - Yes..

    But our eldest turns 18 yrs of age during this next trip and I want to speak from fact, not what Daddy "thinks" the legal age should be.

    My guess is that she can share with you a number of links indicating her extensive research into the matter, especially if 18 is the legal age.

    Never seen anyone carded, never seen anyone deny liquor to a minor. Not that it's legal...

    The past few years I have seen posters saying no sells to minors in bars and places that sell alcohol, so I am guessing there has been some campaign going on, at least posters were printed.

    Signs are posted under 18 is prohibited and subject to loseing the license if violated, but like Cookshoe says, I have never seen anyone carded as yet.

    I have seen many fathers send their young children to the corner pulperia for their favorite brand of transparent alcohol. The kids always return successfully with a plastic baggie full of the stuff. It took me awhile to realize what they these kids were carrying when I saw them on the street.

    I thought this would be a good spot to touch on this subject: My wifes 12 year old cousin, whom lives in Villa Libertad voted last Sunday! No shit! Apparently there were plenty of friends of his that did the same, utilizing cedulas which were passed out by CPC members in the area. The JRV, who had only FSLN fiscales allowed ANYONE with a Cedula to vote, expiration of the cedula, picture not matching, person dead or not, it did not matter. So this 12 year old kids walks out with a dumb smile on his face and a blackened thumb.
