Travel Vaccinations for Nicaragua

The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to Nicaragua

One of the many great features of Central American countries is the luxury of having two coastlines, one on the Pacific and another on the glittering Caribbean. And since they are both easily accessible, you don’t have to choose just one. Take time to hike up Volcán Conceptión for a breathtaking vista of colonial Grenada, the oldest city in the new world, and her numerous tiny islets. Don’t miss beautiful León, home of Nicaragua’s finest museums, universities and churches, including the grandest cathedral in Central America. If you are bound for the beach, steer towards Lago de Nicaragua,and lounge on one of Nicaragua’s lovely Pacific beaches. At Lookout Point on Little Corn Island are deserted white Caribbean beaches and stunning vistas. Before you are on your way to Nicaragua please pay a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, four to eight weeks before departure, to ensure that you will be completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for Nicaragua.

Incredible service – so helpful
Excellent service! Chazile went above and beyond to prepare me for my travels to south east Asia. Very kind, sharp and added helpful bits of information that will be useful during my travels. Even created a vaccine booklet for me that I asked for to keep track of my vaccines for the future. Highly recommended The London Vaccination Clinic. Thanks again Chazile 🙂 Nick

Travel vacines

Attended a consultation for travel vacines, the nurse explained everything with care, provided good advice. We then add a follow up consultation with a different nurse for the vaccines and was also very kind and professional. Was very impressed, we did not feel pressured to have more vacines then reasonable and both nurses gave pricing information upfront.

Very positive experience

Really easy to book and the nurse who I saw in Liverpool Street was really kind and helpful. She went through my vaccination history, what I needed for my trip and explained everything I needed to know ahead of administrating the vaccine I needed.
I am glad I arrived early as the venue was tricky to find as the name of the building has changed so doesn’t match Google maps. Put me in a slight panic as I thought I was going to miss my appointment but I found it in the end!

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside…

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside and out. I have a fear of needles and she was so patient and reassuring from beginning to end. She asked me questions, helped me to relax and made me feel like an individual rather than just someone on the list for the day.

Further Travel Health Advice for Nicaragua

Nicaragua is tropical and very hot, with high humidity at either coast and inland, and temperatures can get into the 30’s. Use sun block and apply it liberally. Remember that the sun can burn you even when you are in the sea. Make a habit of carrying bottled water with you wherever you go.

The tap water in Nicaragua is heavily chlorinated, and it’s not a good idea to risk drinking it. Mineral water, and bottled or purified water is cheap and is sold everywhere, so it is probably a good plan to drink just bottled water. Do not use ice cubes unless you are sure they are made with purified water.

Nicaraguan food is quite simple, and very much like its cousin, Mexican cuisine, with rice and beans used in many dishes, as well as standards like tamales, and tortillas. Corn is a main staple here, and you will find cornmeal bread, cornmeal dumplings called Nacatamales, filled with beef, vegetables and rice, and cooked in a banana leaf, and Indio Viejo, a purée of beef with corn flour and vegetables. On the coast, enjoy the fresh caught fish and seafood, often served with rice cooked in coconut milk. Remember to sample some of the exotic fruit available here, like Guava, Cas, and Papaya. The National drink is Flor de Caña, premium rum, and Nicaraguan beers, such as Tona and Brava are light and refreshing.

If you need health care in Nicaragua, it is always best to use a private clinic. In the capital, the standard of care is quite good, but before you travel to any remote location, it is advisable to check ahead to see what clinics are available. Arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities.

While Nicaragua is quite safe, there are certain ways to be sure of your safety. Petty theft is common in just about any tourist area, but more so in the capital. Be cautious, and leave your valuables at home before your trip. Keep your cash and travellers’ cheques secure, and lock ATM doors after entering. Don’t wear flashy jewellery while on tour or at the beach. When visiting coastal areas, remember that unprotected skin puts you at risk for insect bites. Bring a good insecticide spray with you.
