Worrisome news for perpetual tourists in Costa Rica, who run to the border every 90 days in order to renew their tourist stamp visas.
Nicaragua is suffering the worst civil unrest in years, with at least 10 dead amidst protests over changes to its social security program, and it appears to be ongoing as of this writing. While we can confirm through a direct source that the border can be crossed back and forth on Thursday and Friday, the situation may worsen at any time.
This is why we highly recommend you apply for legal residency in Costa Rica! Complete our free assessment questionnaire now and see if you qualify. Once you apply you will no longer need to keep heading to the border!
