Anonymous post June 11, Stop lieing whomever you are.I left Managua along with other expats last year.Granada and Leon are basically deserted by expats and tourism has dried up throughout Nicaragua.Theres nothing cheap about living in Managua lived there almost 15 years so cut the bullshit.Many native Nicaraguans fled to Costa Rica by the tens of thousands for obvious reasons.

It's not dangerous like people want you to believe, I just moved here two months ago and I've been loving every single minute of it! it's super cheap, food is great
#Anonymous on Mar 19, 2019 :
If you like major gunfire dangerous situations throughout the country then move to Nicaragua,but wear body armour at all times even when you sleep.
#Anonymous on Mar 07, 2019 :
The majority of expats left Managua at least the smart ones like me and my wife in January too dangerous.
#Carlos on Apr 09, 2018 :
Does anybody know if houses have air conditioner? I know is some parts of Latin America you won't find them, but not sure in Managua because the weather seem to be pretty hot.

A few of the prices seem wring. Nearly $410 per month net wage? More like $150 a month working 60 hour weeks. I know of a psychiatrist with 30. Years working at government hospital earning $500 a month gross.
My average electric is $12, water $4, garbage $4.
Rent of 3 bedroom, 2 bath in the best part of town $400.
Internet at 6 mbps is $28 unlimited. Taxi anywhere in town $2 or less.
You can just about forget repairing anything. Even if they knew how, there are no parts.
I have lived in 4 Latin countries the last 4 years. Panama is cheapest, Costa Rica by far the highest. But Nicaraguas attraction is low crime and low drug use. That makes it the safest.
