I lived a low-key life in Managua almost 9 years. I lived in a supposed good safe area.Don't ever believe Managua is safe even during the daytime.The crime catagories listed here are way under what it really is.I've visited other areas during my living in Managua.The best way to describe it is the entire country is dangerous.If you are white you'll be a continuous target.If you are black do not enter, seriously.Nicaraguans, are very racist against blacks.Jo matter what color any foreigner is just remember this.Once you enter through customs you are being watched by police and other lowlifes roaming around.If you decide to get out into the countryside and live you've just signed your own death warrant.There's a very good reason why Nicaragua is so dangerous.El Salvador and Honduras.You might think that's two different countries.Don't be fooled ms13 circulates throughout Nicaragua.I did meet many nice people over the years.But when the locals say make sure doors are heavy duty with good locks and watch about people following you home reverse route back home they aren't joking.I cannot say I regret leaving Nicaragua last month because I had to be on my guard whenever out which was always.Noplace is completely safe no matter where it's at.
