We arrived on the bus to Nicaragua recently and read that the best way to exchange Costa Rican Colones to Nicaraguan Cordobas was at the border.
We have about 89,000 Colones (approx. $154) in cash that we want to change. A guy at the border was offering us a maximum of 4000 Cordobas (approx $132). We thought this was extremely low so we decided against it.
The problem is, we didn't realise how difficult it is to change colones inside Nicaragua.
We're stuck with it now and really don't want to get a bus back to the border.
Does anybody know where we can change colones inside Nicaragua?
