Our Expat Community in Nicaragua Welcomes You!
¡Hola! and welcome to our expat community in Nicaragua! InterNations is home to a large community of expats living in Nicaragua and across the glow, who can help you settle into your new life abroad. Relocating can be both exciting and challenging, and our experienced expats know exactly how that feels.
Simply join InterNations and start interacting with your fellow expats. You may have questions about moving to Nicaragua, like: “where's the safest place to live in Leon?” or “what are the schools like in Managua?” or even “what's the healthcare system like in Nicaragua?”. Whatever questions you may have, our expat community is always happy to answer them, with shared knowledge, experiences, tips, and advice about moving to Nicaragua.
InterNations members are also well-versed in the culture of their respective countries of residence. As such, the network in Nicaragua will be able to tell you where you can try a traditional gallopinto and where best to celebrate San Juan on the beach, giving you a deeper insight into your new country.
We are present not only in Nicaragua, but worldwide including numerous countries in North & South America – for instance our chapter for Expats in China. You might also consider to stop by at our Expatriate Spain community during your next travel.

Nicaragua Expat Guide
Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Nicaragua
Nicaragua has some of the most spectacular terrains in Central America. From its stunning volcanoes, such as Momotombo, to its incredible lakes, particularly Lake Managua, Nicaragua is a natural paradise. And with its two coastlines, the Pacific and the Caribbean, that have excellent beaches and sailing opportunities, it's a great country in which to seek leisure pursuits, as well as work in the major cities of Granada and the capital Managua.
While Nicaragua is still the poorest country in Central America, and the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere, export opportunities have increased and a deal with a Chinese-run company to build an inter-oceanic canal costing around 50 billion dollars should help with the country's infrastructure.
However, expats generally don't choose Nicaragua for the jobs, many move there to experience an alternative way of living, to enjoy laid back Latin culture, and live in a warm climate. The cost of living is cheap, including housing and food expenses. Many expats relocate to the very expat-friendly colonial city of Granada, as opposed to the sprawling capital city of Managua.

Or, if you just want to socialize and make new expat friends, there are a number of options, such as the InterNations Official Events or the Beautiful Nights Out Only Group who encourage social meetings of like-minded individuals and couples.
The great news is that moving to another country like Nicaragua doesn't have to be daunting. From the planning stages to arriving in your chosen location, the expat community can support you on the way to your next chapter in Nicaragua.
