The United Nations suggest that about 80% of the population live on less than $2 a day. As you can appreciate, with such little national income, there isn't a huge amount of trade, and therefore, not much international shipping taking place between our two nations.
Despite this the time it takes and the prices charged to send parcels to Nicaragua are very competitive. You can expect a parcel to take between two and four full days from the date of collection to be delivered and at costs which range from around £32 to £65 depending on whether you select DHL or our own service to fulfil your order. There is also a service provided by Asendia Worldwide which is a little slower, taking 7-10 days.
When parcels are heavier, say 10kg, you would be best off choosing our Air Express service as you can book it from around £66, where as DHL would chrage via our site nearly £100 more than this. The service only takes one further day and is fully tracked, so much greater value for money.

A Brief Overview
In pre-Columbian times the area we call Nicaragua was actually located between the Mesoamercian and Andean cultural areas and wasn't populated in any great fashion until around 500BC when the Pipil people migrated down from Mexico. The early Sixteenth century saw the beginning of a shared history with its neighbours. It was then where the Spanish started their lengthy control of the region and independence in the early Nineteenth century. The United States of America has had a great interest in the region and likes of Panama, Nicaragua and Honduras all having been invaded at some time in the past two hundred years. It is only Belize, which used to have the moniker British Honduras which hasn't been invaded since the US gained independence.
The 1960's and 70's saw great upheaval in Nicaragua with a revolution and its aftermath. It wasn't until the election of 1984 that any resemblance of democracy was seen. As with many nations that have seen great social and political change in recent decades, Nicaragua has a very troubled economy.
