United States and Canada
Americans living or traveling in Nicaragua can register with the U.S. Embassy in Nicaragua (Kilometer 5.5, Carretera Sur, Managua, tel. 505/2252-7100, http://nicaragua.usembassy.gov) at the main international travel page of the U.S. State Department (www.travel.state.gov). Registering is not a legal requirement but is encouraged by the embassy so that they can send you updated travel and security advisories regarding Nicaragua.
These advisories—and the warden messages on the embassy website—are invariably on the conservative side, as far as risk assessment.
