Some will be evangelical about the surfing, some the nightlife and others the jungles and volcanoes. This group will be plugged into the local expatriate network, involved in local community activities and they’ll probably be able to get by with a little Spanish.
On the other side are the frustrated. They miss the conveniences of back home and find it hard to get things done in Nicaragua.
