Nicaragua: Increased Crime Against US Citizens

As a foreigner living in Nicaragua, Pensajes de Pamela summarizes the latest news in Nicaragua, and writes “There have been several high profile deaths of Americans reported here in the last several weeks in Granada and Esteli, and while there is certainly no need to panic, the U.S. Embassy reports that petty crime and robbery against U.S. citizens is rising.”

    Two specific cases do NOT make a trend.

    I will be traveling in the area of Waspam, Sandy Bay and Puerto Cabezas in February and will be taking a group of 35 in for health assistance. I have read that crime has been diminishing in this area in the past five years. Any specific advice from anybody. Sojourner
