Howdy folks. Would like to know if the border with Costa Rica at Penas Blancas is currently open. I'm trying to plan a trip to Nicaragua in January and would prefer to fly into Costa RIca because of flight schedules.

The last I heard, one can pass from Costa Rica into Nicaragua at Penas Blancas, but cannot cross from Nicaragua into Costa Rica at the land border.

Yes , border is open one-way to tourists. FB Nic Flights webpage has many updates.
But keep nimble, I predict a January meltdown as Americans spread the disease and countries react/over-react to the new strain.

I drove from the US to Nicaragua right before Christmas and had no trouble:



No I drove with a loaded to the gills F150. Mexico,, easy money,, no problems.

Wrong time of year to enter Guatemala,, so close to Christmas, tons of traffic,, people importing old vehicles.

We got a Covid test in Guate City,, $45, results in 2 hours, that got us into Honduras and into Nicaragua.

We had to unload for customs inspection in Nicaragua but paid only $262 for the load.

We also paid both Mexico and Guatemala about $100 each for the right to transit the load,, Honduras was free.

Borders were all incredibly busy with commercial traffic,, so close to Christmas. This would be a much better time to travel
