Hi all sorry I have been absent for a while hope you are all well..I am usually here answering questions now it is MY turn >.LOL I used to send people to Granada for their border runs BUT I think now it maybe a bit dangerous yes?
PLEASE help with suggestions as to where to send a young couple in Nicaragua still with Ticabus I guess...
but SAFE .a little town as close as you think to the border... without me having to worry about them, They will be my guests from UK.
also since they want to book the Ticabus as a means that they are leaving after 90 days?
(Things change so much I cannot believe I have been here 30 years AGGGHHH I am OLD.s?
They will be visiting me for 90 days in October so if they want a longer stay WHERE do you suggest..THANK YOU in advance..
ALSO very important to remember that they want to know if they can book a Tica bus ticket from England to use as proof that they are leaving within the 90 tourists limit??
Luv Pebbs

They are not required to stay out 72 hours, just long enough to get their passport stamped. They should leave CR before their 90 days are up. So, just a quick turn around, UNLESS they wish to bring some items back into CR without paying duty on them.

If they do wish to have a weekend away, suggest they check out San Juan del Sur.

We visited Granada with a visitor from the states in July and all was tranquil. I would avoid this coming weekend due to Nica Independence Day, but generally things have been quiet.

I avoid Managua as much as possible, but we were in Managua on Monday. No problems, but there are many armored police on the streets near central Managua. In general, trouble would likely flare up in Managua before other areas.

When I lived there, I just exited CR, and returned 15 minutes later. Did it over and over again.
