Excellent natural area but weak infrastructure. The government talks up tourism but doesn't pave the roads so investments muddle along. Overall, not 1/100 what it could be if the government did its part.

It's as safe as anyplace down here....just take the normal precautions you should take anyplace. Chicken busses are safe. 2 people @ 40 bucks each is OK...good hostels and nice hotels for that price....if you eat local, should get buy for $12 a person for food. I'd suggest you leave a bit more time for up north...Matagalpa area.. Maybe cut a day off Ometepe..4 should be plenty Same with Granada....3-4 days is plenty Have you considered the Rio San Juan area/
