Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Nicaragua accepting of differences?
When we asked people about diversity in Nicaragua and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...
"Yes, there is a lot of diversity in Nicaragua. Nicaragua is home to many different ethnicities, languages, and cultural backgrounds. Nicaraguans are generally very accepting of these differences, respecting and celebrating the diversity that exists within the country. Nicaraguans are known for their warmth and hospitality, and for embracing individuals from different cultures and backgrounds," said another expat in Nicaragua.
"Having lived here for 7 years, there's hardly a face I don't know. There exists though, an invisible barrier, an almost inherent racism in the culture. Given a long history of foreign intervention, particularly by the United States, it's a common assumption that foreigners don't deserve the same rights as Nicaraguan nationals, there's no other word for it than racism/nationalism, it can be a culture shock, but you get used to it and it's an opportunity to start to enlighten those you can about having a more worldly mind;-)," wrote a member who made the move to Playa Miramar, Nicaragua.
