Exchanging currency in the country
The primary option is the use of exchange houses. You will find exchange offices in most places like airports and banks, although with the lowest rates. Many find the best rates by exchanging money from the street money changers. Forging bills will be accepted almost everywhere, specially USD only if they are not too worn out, but we recommend using cÃ³rdobas when possible.
ATMs are an option available in most banks but are not recommendable because of the social and economic state of Nicaragua. It is often very unsafe to change your money in places that are too visible because of the risk of robbery.

When I was looking to retire to France a year ago I was in need of transferring money in order to pay the deposit on my retirement flat.
