Has anyone made a visa run to Nicaragua recently? Need to renew ours and wondered what the situation was like at the border these days. Thanks for any helpful info

Went to Penas Blancas last month. Piece of cake. So much easier now with the restrictions lifted.

@Jamaicaman What's the procedure like? How long do you have to stay in Nicaragua before you can return to Costa Rica? Also, do any of the border agents in Nicaragua harass any of the Gringos they encounter or confiscate phones, or other valuables?

Very simple procedure. You walk in one door and walk out another. No time needed to be spent there. The gringos are not hassled at all.
