For those who carry US passports .... there is a $10 entry fee upon arrival in Managua .. CASH ONLY AND IN US DOLLARS !!!!!!!! ... and you must also fill out 3 different entry forms .... I have no idea why in the world would they make you fill out so many forms ... I guess the government is trying to keep eye on those entering the country. Forms have English translations on them and the immigration officials speak limited English.
The arrival hall has 3 or 4 desk and there is 2 luggage belts .... not very big (welcome to the 3rd world country)
I love the internet and sometimes wonder how I ever got along without it. I planned my trip to Central America on the internet and while I was there, I emailed home every day to give Karen an update on my trip.
The two Internet Cafes pictured here are the places I stopped to check my email while in Managua. I saw several other Internet cafes. In fact, they just may be as abundant as the cafes which serve food. The cost was less than a dollar an hour and the high speed connections were good. The only challenge was that the Spanish keyboard is a little different than the English one.
The most popular sport is baseball in Nicarauga!!
Fondest memory: Watching baseball game in Estadio Denis Martinez for the first time!
The Rubén Darío Rotonda
with its luminous fountain is the starting point to explore the modern Managua.
