5 Things to Know as You Now Prepare to Backpack Nicaragua

Now that countries are reopening their borders to vacationers, where do you go for your next vacation? We recommend you give Nicaragua a try. If you’ve been putting off backpacking Nicaragua due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the wait is over!


Known for its freshwater lakes, volcanoes, and beaches, Nicaragua reopened to travelers regardless of nationality since October 1, 2020.


However, all travelers are expected to present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival even now. Although quarantine isn’t necessary for Nicaragua, travelers will be traced for 14 days by Nicaraguan health authorities.


As you prepare to make the trip to Central America’s Nicaragua, these are some of the things you should bear in mind.







· It Is Generally Affordable

This part of the world is very affordable in terms of living costs for locals and tourists alike. Central America is a great place to take a vacation cost-wise, with Nicaragua being the cheapest. With an already low cost of living, you can get by on $20 per day if you eat street food.



· No Security Threats

Nicaragua is relatively safe with low crime rates for a country surrounded by neighbors with high crime rates. So with standard precautions and the application of common sense, you’ll thoroughly enjoy the volcano nation. So, if safety is a concern you have, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about.



· Street Foods Are a Big Deal

Nicaraguan main dishes tend to get monotonous over a period, with rice, black beans, and fried plantains making up most meals.


The ideal way to mix things up is by trying as much street food as possible. There is a plethora of delicious Nicaraguan snacks and street grubs at a bargain price. Also, where better to meet and converse with locals than in the streets over delicious snacks!
