CNBC report about a retirement contest in Nicaragua. The contest winner will spend a month in Granada, "test driving" a retirement in a city many of us have enjoyed.
The report mentions the friendly people of Nicaragua, but emphasizes the low cost of retirement there -- especially the low cost of restaurant meals and drinks.
For those of us who lead trips to Nicaragua, "Is it safe?" is probably the most common question we hear. It appears that the retirement industry has decided it is, for better or worse! Whether Nicaragua remains "safe" from the deleterious effects of tourism remains to be seen.
