Resolved Question: Crime and safety in
Before I start id like to say this is not a swipe at the people of Nica but a question to weed through bull crap which I've seen and heard on both sides. I just want to know the truth. I want to know first if the reports are true about Nicaragua on not. One side ( travel sites, Real estate sites and a few people proud of their country) have said Nica is the safes countrys in all central America and than US govrn sites say other wides. They say that in the area we are looking to move to has had an up rise of home invasions. The say when attacked they demand that Americans return the property or die and this is in gated communities. So who do I believe? I though maybe hiring a security staff but really who's right in all this?
