Into the Wild Spaces :: Living in Nicaragua

I am the co-author of Moon Living Abroad in Nicaragua, published by Avalon Travel Publishing. This book has been well received by expats, long-term visitors to Nicaragua, and retirees headed to warmer shores. The second edition, published in 2010, provided a much-needed update to politics and procedures, and remains the best way to get a handle on making Nicaragua your next home, especially since Ericka and I have gone through most of these challenges personally, from buying land to building a home, and more!
1st edition (2006) 2nd edition (2010)
