New Emergency Hotline Available in Nicaragua

We would like to inform you that a new emergency hotline is now available in Nicaragua for English speakers. 101.

In a May 7, 2013 joint press conference with the Tourist Police and Claro, the Nicaragua Tourism Board announced the new 101 line will provide personalized and rapid 24-hour emergency assistance to foreigners anywhere in the country, free of charge.

Similar to our 911 service in the U.S., the English-speaking dispatchers will coordinate the emergency response with the police, ambulance service, and fire department, as necessary.

Thanks,
