Security Message for U.S. Citizens

Location:  Nicaragua and its border areas

Event:  Roadblocks are present throughout Nicaragua, including near the border with Honduras, making overland travel unpredictable; road travel is even more dangerous after dark, when the likelihood of violence at roadblocks, and other crime, increases.  Nicaraguan authorities may deny entry to travelers attempting to cross into Nicaragua via land.  The U.S. Embassy in Managua cannot intervene in these situations.   

The Department of State issued a Level 3 Travel Advisory for Nicaragua on June 8, advising U.S. citizens to reconsider travel to Nicaragua due to crime, civil unrest, and limited healthcare availability.
