Posted on 07/20/2018 8:02:18 AM PDT by Kartographer
After decades teaching social studies at a California high school, Noel Correa moved to Nicaragua, buying a home on the outskirts of this colonial city. Then, the country he chose as his retirement paradise began to unravel.
We were just getting settled when the fighting broke out, said Mr. Correa, 67, who arrived here with his wife in December. Now we are in limbo.
So are many other expats caught up in a three-month-old uprising against Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, whose crackdown in response has killed more than 300 people.

Sounds like a story of a retiree moving to the retirement paradise of California
When was Nicaragua ravelled?
The Year of Living Dangerously........................
A lot of American retirees bought 99 year leases on the coast of Baja Mexico (non citizens can’t buy property; only lease or rent it) then when there was nice finished row of luxury homes, built by the retirees, with a million dollar view of the Pacific ocean the Mexicans came in and evicted them all and took them over. I suspect the influential politicians, cartel honchos, and other connected Mexicans took them over.
There’s not a single chance in hell I would risk living in any Hispanic speaking country.
Before Ortega took over...............again..................
Corrupt leftwing retirees.......................
ZOMG! Nicaragua, unstable? Who knew?
Left wing idiots shouldn’t complain - this is the natural endgame of stupid liberal policies - enjoy the mess you’ve created libs.
“Paradise” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Ortega is the same clown that emptied all the seed/grain bins to “feed the people”.
Came planting time they’d eaten all the seed stock.. Nuttin’ to plant!
Brilliance on display.
Social studies teachers at California high schools.
This would have made sense in Costa Rica or Panama. But not Nicaragua or El Salvador.
These people do the absolute minimum amount of research on their ‘dream retirement’ locations.
Anyone who would move to that country without first reading-up on it’s awful political history is an effing fool.
Actually, foreigners can buy property in Mexico.
The Mexican Constitution had previously banned foreign nationals from owning property within the restricted border zones. This was intended to protect Mexican soil from foreign invasion. The Foreign Investment Law of 1973 was a constitutional amendment which changed this allowing foreigners to now purchase real estate free outright except inside the restricted zone; consisting of all lands within 100km (64 miles) from an international border and 50km (32 miles) from the coastline at high tide. For properties within this zone, foreigners need to use a bank trust called a fideicomiso. All real estate transactions involving these trusts are governed by federal law. Merida and all coastal properties fall into the restricted category. Outside the zone, you can own property with a title issued in your name.
I can understand wanting to leave Mexifornia, but why would anyone in their right mind move to a worse sh!thole?
Californians take their insanity with them when they move elsewhere, Beware AZ, TX, NV, OR, WA, ID, etc., etc., etc.
govts in this world can not be trusted to protect immigrants/visitors/retirees....
Give it a few years and it could happen here
imo maybe the best movie ever made....
