I don't need a visa to enter certain European countries as a tourist... but I am not sure about the UK. A friend invited me to go to the UK. I will stay in Amsterdam for a month before going there. Any idea if I need a visa to enter the UK if I am already in a European country?

You don't need to apply for a visa in advance to enter the UK with a Nicaraguan passport, as long as your period of stay is less than six months, according to Timaticweb. However, the length of the visa issued on arrival is at the discretion of the immigration official who processes you at border control.
