I'm going to be traveling to San Juan del sur next month and I'll be staying in a rental. I wanted to know if there was any shortage of groceries in the supermarkets in San Juan del Sur. Thank you.
I have some friends living there and there haven't been any shortage in the supermarkets lately!
Nop, everything is fine that that the Government remove by brutal force some roadblocks
The supermarkets are not seeing any shortages as most people are not going out. It’s safer to stay in doors than to go out shopping.
There is no difficulties at all moving thorughout the country, all barricades ahve been removed, supermarkets are sotcked up as well as local markets, gas station are orking normal.
After more than three months in these problems, the repression towards the people who where at the roadblocks or those who protest on the streets including Doctors who helped the injured of the protests continue to be persecuted, the economy will probably fall to 1% growth or even worse at -1%, travel alerts are still on to level 3, but the government intends to pretend that if nothing has happened, the same story that has happened in places like Venezuela, There are no more roadblocks but if it goes out to the streets to protest luckily the government no longer goes out to kill its own people, the jails are crowded with missing people, the dead have not stopped for the same reason that there are many missing persons, you can drive to many places although there is presence Paramilitaries in a certain area and are not very friendly since neither you see their face and they do not have uniform, it would be irresponsible to say that it is good to visit Nicaragua, although now a day you can circulate much better and you can go to the tourist places, but still feel an air of insecurity and even more at night. most of the hotels are closed, as are many bars and restaurants, and even the tour guides, unfortunately, many of them had to emigrate or work on anything else.
If you want more updated information it will be a pleasure to help you, feel free to get in touch with me at my email firstname.lastname@example.org or to my Whatsapp 505 88039312.
I have been here (15 mi north of SJS) for 1.5 months (it's now early August). There are no shortages of anything, except tourists. I spent the last 5 days driving around SW Nicaragua (where you will be), including SJS. Things are very quiet. The beach towns, especially, are generally untouched by the unrest. Businesses do close early -- not because of safety but because there is just no one out and about. Getting to SJS by private-driver is no problem. Nicaraguans will thank you for still coming.
For SJS do you mean San Juan del Sur? We are thinking about getting a private driver from the airport to San Juan del Sur in January... Flying in from the states. How do you think safety is for bringing our 8th grader? Also what about travel to and from Rivas? Thank you!Edited: 27 August 2018, 06:36
