There were riots at the U.S. Embassy in Managua on 10/29/09 due to some comments made by the US ambassador. I am wondering if the anti-US sentiment is widespread. We are traveling to Nicaragua next week and are now concerned for our safety. We are flying into Managua and immediately traveling to San Juan del Sur. Is there any reason we should be worried?

There is no reason to be worried, all those protest are over with and verything is back to normal, even if there were protest, you will be safe.

It was just rent-a-mob.

Don't worry about it.

Two days ago I passed the ministry of foreign affairs in Managua during a small demonstration again the US ambassador. It was peaceful (only a little firework) and eventhough I could easily pass for a gringo there were no problems. The comment from The Nicaragua Blog sums it up very nicely.

No reason for alarm. Nicaraguans are basically very friendly and peaceful people.
