Cheap, beautiful, relaxing and very safe compared to other Central American countries, Nicaragua might be the ideal place to live. Whether you’re looking for adventure and action or some peace and quiet, or both.
Nicaragua has the lowest crime rate of all countries in Central America and no history of terrorism whatsoever. The political climate has been stable for over thirty years after the dictatorship ended in 1984 and the Sandinista rebels introduced the first free election to the country. Health care has rapidly developed over the past ten years, even to international standards in private hospitals and a tropical climate ensures you stay warm year round. On top of all that Nicaragua is also extremely committed to producing renewable energy and uses its natural resources like strong winds, sunshine and volcanoes.
Tourism has grown drastically over the past decade, about 10% a year, and it’s clear to see why so many people visit this country. And not just as a tourist destination, because Nicaragua is becoming an increasingly popular place for people of all ages to retire or just slow things down a notch. The cost of living is low so generating an income is not necessary for many people moving to the country, which leaves them with lots of free time to enjoy the beauty they are surrounded with.
