For years I have read every book, magazine (International Living, etc) and website (EscapeFromAmerica, etc) about living inexpensively abroad in Latin America, Europe, and Asia. Moon Living Abroad in Nicaragua is, by far, the most comprehensive, informative and well written resource I have come across. [...]. Also much better and more comprehensive than anything I've seen from International Living who's angle it is to provide you with bread crumbs of info in order to draw you into one of their expensive seminars. This book gives you all the info you need, no strings attached.

Unfortunately for me, I don't want to live in Nicaragua! This book sets a high bar that will hopefully inspire a new class of books about living abroad, including countries I'm more interested in.

I don't what the elderly reviewer is complaining about, this book is perfectly suited to a retiree investigating Nicaragua. First rate, highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book in anticipation of my week long Nicaraguan trip. It accompanied me throughout the trip and it was invaluable. Being a non Spanish speaker accompanying my Nicaraguan-born relatives on the trip, I found it funny that I was constantly being asked to look in my book to get information on where we should eat, where we were going and what certain rules were. I especially loved the sections on cultural norms. At 29 years old, I read these sections and thought, " So that's why my mom does that!" Especially the part where it says Nicaraguans point with their lips. My mom was the only person I knew who did that and the realization that there is a whole country of lip pointers was funny to learn about. Even if you are not going to live in Nicaragua, I highly recommend this book as a prerequisite before traveling there. Yeah, you may not care for certain sections dealing with home buying and obtaining visas but the parts that deal with describing certain areas and the maps provided are very helpful. A Great Buy!!

We have used our Red edition of their MoonHandbook until it just about fell apart. Now this book has come out I can't put it down!

We live part time in Nicaragua and these books have definitely made the transition for our family easier!

The map of Managua is like no other we have ever seen. We were able to traverse the city coming from Jinotepe to Las Mercedes (in the dark with a flashlight) with NO problems.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone thinking of moving to Nicaragua -either long or short term- no matter what their age.

This book provides PRICELESS information to those traveling to or planning on living in Nicaragua. Joshua & Randy have a way of describing the country and its' beautiful inhabitants with a charming mix of personal experience and important facts. I read the book about 2 weeks before my Nica trip and would have been a bit lost without the book- especially the section on cultural norms. Thanks for the book, gentleman. I highly reccomend it!

Format: Paperback
Living Abroad in Nicaragua is a well-researched and comprehensive resource for anyone who is thinking about working, living, investing or just traveling to Nicaragua on a longer-term basis. The book is divided up into very useful sections and information is very easy to find. The authors, having lived and worked in Nicaragua themselves, are clearly educated and well-informed on many fronts and include this valuable information in the book for the reader. I also feel that it is important that the authors clearly care about the future of Nicaragua and care deeply for the Nicaraguan people. That is invaluable.

Format: Paperback
Moon Living Abroad in Nicaragua proved to be a wonderful resource as my family and I began to make our fanatasy of living (at least part-time) in Nicaragua a reality. The authors provide lots of details on daily life as well as extensive profiles of Nicaraguan cities and towns across the country. I most appreciated the diverse voices of the expat community that are included in this book. While both authors seem to have many years of experience living in Nicaragua between them, the additional perspectives increase the book's breadth. This book got me through a long winter in Seattle!

The info in this book is really helpful ... contains things you need to know but may not have thought to ask. It is easy to understand and is also entertaining. It's worth buying, especially if you're considering living in Nica.
