I wasn't aware of the drone policy for Nicaragua. I tried to bring in a small personal drone and it was confiscated at customs (Aduana). All they gave me was a small note card that they said I could retrieve it on exit. The phone number doesn't work, and I have called 100 times to any number I can find with no success talking to anyone. This is so corrupt and unorganized it's unbelievable.
