    Nicaragua is home to rattlesnakes, other vipers and coral snakes. Caution should be taken when hiking in the jungle or in tall grass. Construction debris should be removed immediately after discard.
     
    I might add that there is no more danger in Nicaragua than any place in the States. Reasonable care should be taken when dealing with any animal.  I’ve had closer contact with dangerous snakes in the US than in Nicaragua.

    Unless you go to the undeveloped areas of the countryside, mountains, or jungles, in general, there are no dangerous animals for you to be concerned about in Nicaragua.  So, for example, if you go to the main cities of Leon, Granada, Managua, San Juan del Sur, the beaches, the national parks or private reserves, or to any of the main places where tourists go, you won’t find dangerous animals.

    Nicaragua is home to many exotic animals; however, which animal you may be close to depends on where you want to live. I live on the Pacific Coast which is very dry and seems to be home to many animals that would live in arid climates. While humidity is still high (which breeds all of the fun insects), we also have the joys of scorpions, snakes, ants, iguanas and frogs.
     
    I've been stung several times by the scorpions, and while they are unpleasant creatures, the ones we have here are not too poisonous. I have never seen a poisonous spider. The creatures that bother me the most are the mosquitos and ants. We have a lot of varieties.
     
    I've had dengue once (same as West Nile Virus in the U.S.). It is carried by mosquitos, and there is no medication for it. You just have to drink a lot of fluids and deal with the pain in your bones.
     
    You don't have to worry about the big ants. They are harmless. The little black ants bite hard and leave a toxin that itches worse than a mosquito bite. It makes gardening very challenging!
