Nicaragua – and particularly Leon – is open for visitors and you can safely visit us. There are still political conflicts, but they are generally not violent any more. Actually the situation has been calm since mid last year, and you can travel freely everywhere. A dialogue has been established between the Government and the opposition (first meeting on 27 February 2019), which we hope will consolidate this.

So we would like to invite you to come and visit us – you don’t have to worry about your safety. There was a moment when a lot of countries had issued warnings not to travel. Most have cancelled these warnings (among these US, Canada, Germany, UK). Of course, whenever you travel it is obviously at your own risk, just as if you decide to visit any other country in the world, but Nicaragua continues to be one of the safest countries in Latin America for foreign visitors.
