When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Nicaragua, they said...

"Expats should research Nicaragua's healthcare system before retiring in the country. A comprehensive medical insurance plan is often advised due to the limited public health system. Additionally, expats should familiarize themselves with local visa regulations, as well as taxation regulations for foreign nationals. Quality of life is generally good and very affordable, so expats may consider their budget in advance. Expats may also want to investigate living arrangements before relocating, as there can sometimes be difficulties finding appropriate housing. Lastly, expats should be aware that the infrastructure in some areas of Nicaragua can be unreliable at times," said a member in Nicaragua.

"Standard advice is to visit Nicaragua before committing to anything - that is even more essential in your case. Visit areas you might want to live, local stores, etc," remarked another expat who made the move to Managua, Nicaragua.
