Hard To Believe
The Huff Post would say anything negative about a fellow traveler, but here it is:
The Real Nicaragua also has an interesting thread about the inability of BanPro to meet their obligations. The poster relates how he is unable to remove his funds even though they show in his account.
Moving large sums of money is getting more problematic. Keeping large sums around is also an invitation to disaster.
Multiple transfers of smaller sums do not seem to cause problems, nor do regular and routine ATM pulls. Nicaraguans DO NOT want their pay in any form other than cash -even if it's just because the line at the bank can be a couple of hours (or more) long. Western Union in Nicaragua has a $900 limit (or at least the office I routinely use enforces one). Beyond that you have to fill out a form with your personal information, references with cedulas and addresses and phone numbers, and the purpose of the funds.
At some point however, you are faced with the need for a larger sum. The BanPro thread highlights the need to be VERY careful where you wire your money. Banks fail everywhere, of course, while I was in CR one of their larger banks bit the dust.
