What do you think about the idea of travelling to the Nicaragua with a 10 monts baby ?
Is it safe for is health?
Is it easy to find baby food and diapers ?
What about the bus travelling with the baby ?

travel in Nicaragua is pretty safe in my opinion, even with a baby, definitely if you stick to the main tourist route. Baby food ad diapers are to be found in supermarkets without any problems - people here in Central America get a lot of babies, so there is ample supply for all the (very young) mothers around. I am not sure about the health aspects, but bus travel is the same as in other countries here and should be no problem if you can deal with normal chicken buses. I hope this helps a bit,

My niece moved to Nicaragua with her 6 month old baby and lived there for a year. I joined them with my teenaged daughter and we lived there for 2 years (see my blog)...and the little guy just loved it there and he was just fine. You can find diapers and baby food, just a bit more expensive and fresh vegetables and fruits are abundant so you can make some of your own baby food. I wouldn't let the baby drink any of the juices mixed with water or any water that isn't bottled or boiled first to sterilize. Other than that, our baby was happy and healthy throughout his year in Nicaragua! Reply to this

I'm thinking about going to the southern Pacific Coast of Nicaragua in a fairly rural spot in March with our 10 month old but I'm nervous about scorpions, snakes and the heat.

Any thoughts? Reply to this

My daughter was here at that age. It was easier than I thought. It's hot on the coast, very hot in March. so you might want to be somewhere cooler or with ample water. I live at Laguna de Apoyo and I took my daughter swimming with me, she stayed comfortable all the time here.
