Upon walking out, I decided to turn around and go check the table one more time for leftover possessions.
We had a fair deal of rum so it felt like a good idea.
Just keep straight-faced and don’t let them anger you. Sadly, this is just what will come with solo female travel in Nicaragua.
The rum is free flowing in this country and the national brand, will probably become your best friend.
Regardless, in our hostel in Granada we were told to not go out at night with our small purses.
The locals working at the hostel insisted we keep our money either in our bras or like I said, in a money belt. Granada especially, and the larger cities in general, are not places to be walking around with valuables visible, especially at night and never if you are alone.
With my friends unknowingly walking out of the restaurant without me, I was corralled by the wait staff telling me we hadn’t paid enough.
Being sure we did, I argued with them for a while until I realized there wasn’t much I could do.
Some men might even go as far to try and touch your arm while walking past.In my opinion, solo female travel in Nicaragua is the perfect way to see the country. Secondly, there are loads of other solo travelers to meet and tons of social hostels around the country to stay in.Lastly, there is so much to do so you can’t really get bored.The ultimate worst thing about traveling Nicaragua as a woman is the cat-calling men.In fact, I found Managua and Granada to be the worst places I’ve ever been for it.
If you haven’t heard much about Nicaragua recently, time to get informed.
