    I just heard from a Reliable Source that it wasn"t my mother Deadfish rolled off of- it was his brother.
    He can"t even spell, and he is going to play the Dozens with me?

    They sure hunt the hell out if them. The road from Managua to Leon has at least a half dozen lizard salemen peddling their wares. Mostly in Mateare on the way out of town to the north.
    You'll excuse me, gentlemen. Your business is politics, mine is running a saloon.

    Just to derail this thread even further....

    What, if one exists, if the most common occupation for ex-pats in Nicaragua (excluding being retired)

    On topic for OP.

    Have you ever considered looking to one of the mining companies for work? A man who knows the language and the customs of a foreign place can be of value if he also speaks the language of those who have the money.

    I'm not sure exactly what kind of employment opportunities may or may not exist, but it may be worth a look.

    Mining Triangle -- lots of the locals speak English. A woman I know was born there and didn't tell her husband for years that she speaks fluent English.

    Most of what people try to do is something in the tourist industry.

    What the country might find more useful is someone with a manufacturing specialty who has access to venture capital.

    A friend of mine who speaks three languages fluently was paid less than $220 a month for running a hotel for the owner. He's since quit.

    Basically, coming here to run a business seems to be either doing something at scale and profiting from other people's cheap labor or working all the jobs at your tourist resort with a couple of helpers.

    Some people started farming and claim that they almost made a profit this past year.

    Not that hard to make a "profit" farming, long as you don't figure in all you spend on making the "profit".

    I often think I would have money ahead if I had gone to buying machette's for 5 dollars and selling them for 2.50

    Or just been stone cold about it and stayed in the ice and cold storage business on a small profitable level. Hind sight is 20/20

    JW Worded it best when he said find a need and fill it. That advice could be used anyplace. I do understand, however, that hard currency is is hard to come by in Nica. And often times you need money to just about get any kind of gig going.

    In my case I have done the same thing for 32 years, electrical engineering. And in that I have a lot of experience designing ships, second is commercial aerospace, and third industry. After that pretty much anything electrical/mechanical including fixing repairing appliances. And believe me, I have fixed a lot of washers and dryers in my life.

    The point is, find a need and fill it.

    Lately I am working in the design of commercial HVAC controls design. I had really no experience in that, but I have lots of experience in computer/plc control systems. I had to take a pay cut to accept this job, but I consider it a sort of university., In a year I will be an expert at it. Some people don't exactly have that much time to put into something and sustain themselves.

    I am sure I would make it in Nica is I fell off the planet and landed there. I am sure there are a lot of Americans that need things that are electrical, alternate energy needs and security.

    Went waaaayy back to post #1 and did some googling of the OP.. Looks like he ended up in the states in May 2010 doing some diveing / fish catching in Pinellas County (Florida)


    After that Google has no record.


    It is interesting now as I reflect on my 3yrs here on this board how many "ships" seem to sail through Nica and in the end it appears a significant amount appeare to be running "from" something rather running "to" something..

    Don't be too hard about the agri business ;-)

    There is money to be made from it - even without putting too much backbreaking work.

    Rubber and macadamias are two good examples.
    http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/...-rubber-trees/

    Well, this site is worth a read for those that wants to do some agri stuff. It is actually for those living in Thailand but worth a check since the climate is similar to what's in Nica.
