Masaya Secure Transportation Services

ETS Security Overview - Nicaragua                                                                                                                           

Crime remains a concern for foreign travelers. Current reporting indicates a significant rise in thefts and muggings. Incidents of express kidnappings for cash from unlicensed taxis have been reported. Pickpockets and thieves operate on public transport and around bus terminals. Many criminals have weapons, and most injuries and deaths have resulted when victims have resisted.

Street crime is prevalent in Managua and other large towns across the country. Crime reporting to the authorities is low but foreign visitors experience a significant number of crimes with robbery accounting for 75% of violent crime.

Caution should also be given regarding natural disaster – primarily due to increased volcanic activity. Seasonal torrential rains and poor minor roads present a safety challenge with ground transportation. 

Road Traffic Collisions (RTCs) are frequent in Nicaragua, the standard of driving and poor infrastructure exacerbate the problem.  Driving in cities or towns can be challenging due to unpredictable levels of congestion and unexpected hazards on the roads.  Local drivers will frequently ignore traffic signals, indicating a level of carelessness and lack of driving awareness.
