Hi, I am just back from a 5 week 'business seeking tour' of Panama Costa Rica and Nicaragua. My Spanish wife and I (I am English) have found an opportunity to setup and offer a taxi boat service within Nicaragua, which is the country (out of the three visited) we fell in love with.
Does anyone have any knowledge of what motor boat captain licences/permits/qualifications are needed and if any, how/where to get them? The maximum passenger number would be x 20 passengers.
We realise we need public liability insurance and set-up the business in Nicaragua, but we are struggling to find information of the boat licence/permit issue. Even the Ministerio de transporte e Infrastructura (maritime dept) doesn't seem to be able to help!
Any help/guidance/suggestions/contacts would be welcomed!!
