Nicaragua is a large country in Central America. It borders Honduras and Costa Rica and sits very close to the Equator. Nicaragua is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west. The country was the first in the Americas to completely change the production of paper currency into polymer banknotes. These were issued in 2009 in order to fight counterfeiting and to reduce the need for reprinting banknotes. Banknotes that were issued before this time are still considered to be legal tender in Nicaragua.

Coins used:
5, 10, 25, 50 centavos, C$1, C$5, C$10

Banknotes used:
C$10, C$20, C$50, C$100, C$200, C$500

The official currency of Nicaragua is the Cordoba. The cordoba is divided into 100 cents or centavos. The cordoba was introduced in 1912 and at that time was equal in value to the US Dollar. The new cordoba was introduced in 1991 and was equal to 1000 old cordobas. The cordoba is also often referred to as a peso or cord. The currency is issued in denominations of C$10, C$20, C$50, C$100 and C$500. Coins are issued in denominations of C$.25, C$.50, C$1 and C$5. Larger denominations such as the C$100 are often difficult to change.

The US Dollar is accepted at most retailers and other establishments in Nicaragua unless the bills are damaged or worn. Prices are often offered in US Dollars but cordobas are considered to be much simpler to use in the country. The US Dollar is the only form of foreign currency that is freely exchangeable in the country. Travelers will find it very easy to exchange US Dollars in currency or travelers checks at any bank that offers this service or through the many retailers that provide exchanges. Smaller businesses will likely only accept cordobas. Many banks offer currency exchange and there are smaller retailers who will gladly convert US Dollars into cordobas for a small fee.

Visa and MasterCard are accepted widely throughout Nicaragua, particularly at larger establishments including most restaurants and hotels. In many places where the electricity is unstable, credit cards may not be accepted so it is recommended that anyone visiting these areas stop by a bank for a currency exchange to ensure that they have an adequate amount of cordoba with them. This is true for most of the Caribbean Coast throughout the country. There may also be moneychangers throughout the larger cities who will exchange currency for a fee. These fees however may often be much higher than exchanges done through official banks.
