Begin with our website www.GoToNicaragua.com, where you can ask the authors of Moon Nicaragua—and your fellow travelers—about specific concerns regarding Nicaragua travel.
The Instituto Nicaragüense de Turismo (INTUR, one block west and one north of the Crowne Plaza Hotel, tel. 505/2222-3333, www.intur.gob.ni, open 8:30 a.m.–2 p.m. Mon.–Fri.) has a sometimes-useful kiosk in the airport arrival area (just before you claim your baggage). The regional offices can give you a list of the year’s upcoming festivals, a fistful of brochures, and can sometimes help arrange tours with local operators. Also visit their tourist-directed site www.visitanicaragua.com.
An ever-shifting group of free glossy English-language magazines, like Between the Waves, are found at the airport, bookstores, and hotels.
Other tourist-targeted, real estate–funded glossy publications are always on hand in hotel lobbies across the country.
