Nicaraguan Infrastructure Is Becoming Stronger Every Day

The infrastructure of the country of Nicaragua has seen a great deal of improvement over the past several decades. Any country can most likely say the same, but there have been roadblocks to the overall development of the country that have made it more difficult for Nicaragua to fully develop. Issues within the government and various political situations made a mass organization of efforts very difficult for a very long time.

Those same issues turned the national efforts into many smaller efforts in different places across the country. Orders for development were given out to the various areas and they were pretty much left to their own devices. As time passed and the political state of the country settled, more and more of the national budget was devoted to bringing all of these efforts under one management group and there has been a great deal of improvement ever since.

The Basic Structure

Nicaragua has several main points across the country that have gained interest from the world at large. There are some very important tourist areas that have gotten enough interest that many people from other countries have started to move into Nicaragua and call it home. One of these is the Gran Pacifica Resort. Because of the increased interest from abroad, the infrastructure in Nicaragua has become a significant issue in the current government.

The infrastructure in Nicaragua is mostly highways and roadways. There are almost no railways of any kind that stretch for further than a few hundred miles at the most. Even some of the most obscure highways are given a good amount of attention, as they pass through the wilderness for hundreds of miles with nowhere to seek help if needed.

The import and export system is mostly sea based. The tourism trade is a large portion of the economy, with places like the Gran Pacifica providing both tax dollars and many jobs for the local area. These tax dollars are important to the infrastructure of Nicaragua because the majority of the nation’s energy needs are met by import.


While the last decade saw a great increase in technology, more specifically the technology of communication. Near the end of the 1990’s, there was only an average of 3 telephones in service for every 100 citizens. That average is now much greater, as well as the quality of the service, which has led to an interesting fact. Since the country of Nicaragua began the majority of its technology advances in the 2000’s, cellular telephones are more prevalent than standard phone service.

Many countries, such as the United States are still making a slow transition from standard to cellular service. While in those countries cellular service is something that most people have, there are still a great number of households that maintain a standard phone line as well. Nicaragua may well have more customers of cellular service than standard phone service.

The infrastructure of the country of Nicaragua is ever changing, with the Internet taking over in more and more places and the tourism increasing rapidly, due to resorts like the Gran Pacifica. The country is in a state of evolution that has nearly caught them up with some other nations that have been working for years to support a strong infrastructure. There is no doubt that Nicaragua will see even more changes over the next 10 years as well. The government has placed a high priority on supporting local development, as well as developing as a nation.
