We would like any comments on areas of to live in Nicaragua. We are senior citizens and would like to retire in a safe place with people our own age. We are not wealthy so we would be looking for moderate costs of rental housing and also close to good medical facilities. My husband and I would like to continue to work part time, any thoughts or ideas about employment?
Nicaragua is a wonderful country for retirees. There are numerous government perks (Law 306) for retirees who seek residency (a 90-180 day process). The colonial city of Leon, in the District of Leon (90 KM north of the capital city Managua) is a beautiful, inexpensive area in which to live. There are two beach communities within 20 KM and each has a great mix of Nicas, Canadians, Americans, Europeans. The foreigners vary in age from their 20s up to 80s. Crime is very low, cost of living is low, as is the cost of medical care. Medical facilities are nearby in Leon (university city) as well as in Managua (Vivian Pellas Metropolitano Hospital. Private clinics, hospitals, doctors, and dentists abound and, by North American/European standards, the fees are very reasonable.
A furnished two bedroom, one bath rental house (no A/C) in the beach community of Las Penitas is about USD $300/month. Utilities are approximately USD $25/month. The town sits on a direct bus line to Leon (hospitals, clinics, universities, 4-plex movie theater, numerous supermarkets (5 in the Walmart group). The bus service runs every 45 - 50 minutes from 5:30AM to 6:45PM. Managua is 90 minutes away on a 12 passenger mini-bus. This comfortable ride costs approximately USD $2. Taxis are slightly less than $1/per person in and around Leon.
Many people start their own businesses in Nicaragua or they continue with businesses they originated in their home countries (via computer). The government is very supportive of investors and offers numerous perks as encouragement.
Hope this helps. I don't know if this forum allows direct contact via email, but I'll try this: you can email beachpropertynicaragua@aol.com and I'll try to answer any further questions you may have.

So sad when people do such things and such a shame for the country of Nicaragua as a whole as it will put people off travelling there and I am sure it is lovely. Shows that you really need to be careful and use your common sense when travelling.
