It is as safe now as before the April Problem. But Dan's replacement needs to be in place before you move here.

Safe depends on where you plan to relocate, and how you are going to live.

There is more police presence in Granada, SJdS,, specifically detailed to keep an eye out for the tourists.

Managua will see more petty crime as the economy deteriorates and more people lose their employment. Your wallet and cell phone means food for their kids. Lack of oil to keep the lights on may create some additional hardship,, and danger. Nicaragua cannot survive without donations and external loans.

If you drive, Transito has been ignoring Gringos, I've never driven this long before, without being solicited for a bribe,,, in fact,, where I was constantly stopped before,, now it's rare to be pulled over.

There are great deals, especially if you plan to rent,, and lots of vacancies to choose from. Make an offer. As a Gringo who can pay the rent promptly without being chased down,, you are a desirable tenant.

If I were buying,, I would wait another 6 months to a year,,and then start seriously looking. The economy is going no where but down,, the question is how far,, and how fast,, and how long. No one is going to loosen the purse strings as long as Danny is still running the show.

Oddly, basics like rice, beans,, flour sugar,, just about everything else,, has risen in price,,, but this is still an inexpensive place to retire.

Good luck,, and welcome to Nicaragua. I've been here almost ten years. The country certainly has its warts,, but the good outweighs the bad --- most days.

Expect to find both saints and sinners in Nicaragua, and in roughly the same percentages as most other places in the world. It won't cost much to take a sightseeing trip before actually retiring here, check out the various regions and see for yourself. It's a small country, but the presence of mountains means wide variances in climate.

I was in Granada - a few years ago, I really liked the area. For many reasons, I decided to not move there. I traveled to a few places - and the historic city was really a magical place. I went there 2 times, I never felt unsafe, of course - using common sense.

Esteli in Northern Nicaragua is very safe at this time.

It's been a while since I swung left to Esteli instead of right to Matagalpa when I head up north. Tell me, is the fabulous Hotel Las Iguanas still thriving in Esteli?
