Would it be relatively safe to fly in to Managua? I want to get picked up at the airport and go north. I would avoid all demonstrations, and obviously Masaya.
I flew out 25 May. No evidence of unrest and no obstacles. Not sure about road blocks to north? I headed south no problem. I took taxi arranged by
to Hacienda Iguana. They took care of all the accommodation and every thing for me. Safe, no problem. Beach community. Then took small charter flight back to Managua. Only cost $112US. Worth it not to risk disruption of flight home. The people in Nicaragua are lovely with warm hearts. So helpful.Edited: 10 June 2018, 06:03
My husband was supposed to fly out of Managua yesterday, but couldn't get down there from Estelí. After 12 hours he gave up and went through Honduras to get home. One one blockade just south of Ocotal with only a 1 hour wait. It will be very hard for you to get up north, if at all.Edited: 10 June 2018, 06:25
My mother-in-law just came from Esteli to Managua Friday and it took her 8 hours and they rode buses to each blockade and then walked to the next one to get on the next bus. That was the only way to get thru. No other troubles other than the long time to get to the capital.
