There are several opportunities for entrepreneurs to make a living in Nicaragua. The market is pretty wide open in the sense that there are not 20 pizza places that deliver, not 12 Starbucks per town. The opportunity to run a small or large successful business there is a real possibility. I just got back from a trip to León and I looked at all kinds of possibilities there. Hotel,restaurant, and hostels are very popular there. You can slide into a small business like this there with non real problem. You must select the area In which you plan on doing business. The street selection is very important. Hire a local to explain the importance of street location. If you are even thinking about it and want to know more about local laws or where to learn Spanish check out my blog or shoot me message.
