Production Insights

  • There are very few permitting requirements for shooting b-roll of public locations throughout Nicaragua. Larger shoots requiring exclusive use of public space need permits.

  • At present, filming with drones is prohibited.

  • The rainy season runs from May to October, with heavy storms common.

  • Locations, local talent and support crew are very inexpensive. Since there is little to no filming infrastructure, most key crew and equipment must be brought in from abroad.
