Nicaragua is Safe and Cheap

I have been living in San Juan Del Sur and Rivas for just about ten years. It is cheap. I live on around $ 500 a month, with a car, internet, cable TV and directed TV and my dogs.
You can too, but you have to get used to some things, like things not always working like you are used to back in the states. But once you get your head round those differences, you will like living in Nicaragua too.
If you have any specific questions, I'll be glad to answer them here. Just leave a comment on this page.
I will give you honest answers, as I know them. I got nothing to gain or sell to you.
One final piece of advice... do not buy a house or land in Nicaragua until you have lived here and can speak the language. I've heard of people having title problems, and what you think is a bargain may not be cheap at all.
