With a total population of 5,785,846, it houses two big lakes: Lake Managua and Lake Nicaragua. The two big lakes have always been a tourist attraction for expats all over the world.

Although previous Nicaragua is known as a country of instability of civil wars and revolution, these days are over. The capital city of Nicaragua, Managua, has modern shopping malls and facilities. However, frequent natural disasters including hurricanes and floods have led to economic instability in Nicaragua.

Healthcare in Nicaragua

The healthcare system in Nicaragua consists of the public and private sectors. The public healthcare facilities are generally inadequately administered and the quality is poor due to the shortage of health funding. The private healthcare sector comprises hospitals and clinics. They are run by health insurance companies or non-governmental organizations. And they usually provide the highest standard of medical services within Nicaragua. The best hospitals usually require cash or credit card payment prior to treatment. Therefore, it is very important that expats obtain a comprehensive health insurance plan to access quality medical services while staying in Nicaragua.
