Cautionary Tales of Nicaragua: Basic Don’t Do’s When Moving Here

Cautionary Tales

Basic Don’t Do’s When Moving to Nicaragua

So this happened…

I’m not completely certain how to best convey to you lovely reader(s) the type of feelings one gets when you see a really bad thing happen to someone, but part of you says, “yeah, I can see how they got themselves into so much T-R-O-U-B-L-E in such a short amount of time.”

What I can promise you is that I’ll try to tell this as one of many cautionary tales of Nicaragua, especially as regards moving and relocating. In fact, I’m creating my master opus on this very topic; I’ll be asking the tough questions that will give you an idea as to what is real here so you can try to avoid those (costly) rookie mistakes. As it happens, a whole series of these could be written, many from my own book of newby errors.

Is a swimming pool with a tropical view in your future?

Here’s a quick rundown on some of mine:

  • I bought property based on an architect’s plan, not what was on the ground.
  • Paid an amount based on that plan becoming a reality.
  • Proceeded to change course entirely and ended up not doing anything with said property for over ten years now.

I’ll save an indepth discussion of my personal relocation errors and mistakes that I made for a different day. This cautionary tale will focus on basic do’s and “don’t do’s” (sic) when moving to this country based on a recent experience I had with someone I don’t know that well. The family moved here, purchased property, brought their five school-age children and five little dogs and ended up having a way too challenging situation that unfortunately could not be overcome.
