      Can I buy a prepaid SIM card in San Carlos?

      San Carlos Mar 28, 2014 at 4:45 AM

      Or is it even possible to buy a cheapish mobile phone only for SMS and national phone calls. I will arrive from Costa Rica and stay for a week or so in the region before heading north.

      City tours

      Managua Mar 2, 2014 at 1:39 PM

      When I got to Nicaragua next summer I would like to make a guided city tour. I have been in Nicaragua twice but never in Managua. About 8 years ago I met someone that ran this business:
      I don’t remember his name and the e-mail adress isn’t working. The agencies I found in the internet don’t seem to make tours of this kind he made. Shall I instead rent a taxi for a few hours? But I would also like to go to markets and walk the city.

      Backpacking Nicaragua tips– places... Ok for solo trip?

      Nicaragua Jan 24, 2014 at 12:20 AM

      Hi there!
      I 'm travelling solo to Central America in March, flying to San Hose, and consider for later to enter Nicaragua from there, for a week - ten day trip -I have just started researching via forum and soon guidebooks.
      Could you suggest some nice spots to visit in Nicaragua, mostly half south part of the country, at low budget levels of comfort?
      Resorts and travel companies, are out of the question…
      My interests would be beaches, culture, villages, forest, volcanoes… well, maybe too ambitious for backpacking? We’ll see…
      I 'll move around with public transport, stay at simple hotels/ hostels, walk around cities and villages, have some daytrips to nature from there, possibly on our own with other travelers, or with the help of a local guide .
      Safety is a concern for me also, as a solo traveller. When backpacking you are exposed more openly to the situations of real life around you, and Nicaragua has some discouraging statistics on those....
      Many thanks, happy travels to all!

    • Ferry schedule from Altagracia to Granada

      Isla de Ometepe Jan 17, 2014 at 9:51 AM

      I am interested in taking the ferry from Altagracia to Granada. The schedule indicates that the ferry leaves Friday at 24:00 (midnight). Would this mean Thurs night/Friday morning or Friday night/Saturday morning. I'm slightly confused as 24:00 is not actually used in military time. Thanks for helping!

    • Anyone who would like to share a taxi in Ometepe to see the petroglyphs?

      Nicaragua Dec 12, 2013 at 10:24 PM

      HI - this is a long shot I guess but I am eager to see as many as I can and most of the usual means of transportation are not possible for me. I don't drive, and physical problems/age make scooters and bicycles out of the question. I am an older American woman, mostly agreeable to have around, an educated and sensitive person. I am currently in Granada and will be around for the next few weeks, so I thought I would give this a try. Thanks, Jean

    • Pre Columbian ruin sites, museums

      Nicaragua Dec 7, 2013 at 12:23 PM

      HI - I know that there is not a lot of these in Nicaragua. I am currently in Granada, I have visited the San Francisco museum and will visit Mimuseo when it reopens on Tuesday; I am still figuring out how to get to Ometepe without a car. To see the archeological site there is it better to leave from Rivas or Granada? I have seen that there are a few things in Esteli and I read a really interesting but ten years old article - reproduced many times but there is no followup I can find - about this important site near Kurkra Hill (Bluefields) on the coast. After 2003 there does not seem to be any information about continuing research, or visits. It is certainly not on the tourist route! Any information or ideas are appreciated. Thanks, Jean

    • Bus from El Savador to Managua

      Nicaragua Nov 24, 2013 at 11:16 AM

      Hi - I am in trouble with air tickets because of last minute decision making (nothing new) - Flying from the States to Managua in a week or so, the situation is horrible. It would be simpler and cheaper - although still a bit of a struggle - to fly into El Salvador and then take a bus. Any ideas on which company? I do know about the Tica Bus but I dont know if can reserve a seat online, that could be risky. Any advice? thanks, Jean

      I see a lot of posts, but unfortunately I don't see much on recent transportation costs. I'm looking to fly into Managua and go to León and then back down to Masaya, Granada, and possibly down to San Juan Del Sur. However, I heard Pochomil is better than SJDS? Any help appreciated. I'm leaving July 22. Tips on places to stay along with the transportation would help too. As long as the place is clean, a shower, and SAFE...I'm good.
