Familienreise Nicaraguatraveling Nicaragua with children

Traveling with family and children is always a special experience which requests a special preparation. Nicaragua is a very exiting country that offers many different things for young and old.
Flying in from Europe can take a while and is not always easy. In the best case scenario it will only take you 18 hours and one stop on the way is almost always necessary, mostly in the USA.



It is helpful to be well prepared with different devices, like toys etc. to keep your child busy and happy. Entering Nicaragua can be a little bit complicated. You have to buy a tourist card (10 USD) and will get a border- and customs form. Your passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months. A child needs to have a passport with picture as well. Since 2012 it is no longer possible to note a child in the parents passport.
Children that are traveling without their parents supervision need to have a notarized and translated permission by their parents. 
Depending from with part of the world you are flying in, it is likely to get a “jetlag”. It can be helpful to get some sleep on the plane to reduce the suffering from the expected jetlag. If you are struggling with sleeping on planes, stay calm- even just a few hours of sleep can have a great impact. At the day of the arrival, we recommend to stay awake  as long as possible. This aspect can be difficult when traveling with kids, as they are not able to control their tiredness. Whenever a nap is necessary you should watch out that it does not extend a certain length.


Watch out that you do not pack too much, as heavy luggage can be disruptive. There is a laundry service in almost every accommodation recommended by us.
It is not necessary to bring all of your sanitary items with you; you will be able get everything that you desire in Nicaragua.
Depending on your activities, you should bring waterproof clothes as well as closed shoes for hiking in the jungle. Nicaragua is located close to the equator which causes a high itnensity of the sun; travelers with children should be well prepared with plenty of sun protection.

Typisches Essen in Costa rica


In general you should wash fruits and do not drink tap water. The local food is very delicious and comprehensive, you will be able get rice everywhere as well as pasta and chicken.
At the beach areas, we recommend to eat fresh fish.

Health care:

Your health care preparations should not be affected by the fact that you are travelling with children. We would advise you to take a medicine chest with you ideally with something against diarrhea and small wounds.
