Costa Rica News – Transnica and Ticabus cancelled trips to and from Nicaragua yesterday following a wave of violent demonstrations that left at least 10 dead and 100 injured in Nicaragua.
Trips will be cancelled until the violence ceases and security is guaranteed.
The clashes are between citizens and police forces over the decision of Daniel Ortega’s government to tax pensions and increase payins to the system by an insane amount.
The decision to cancel the trips was made in order to guarantee safety of passengers and drivers. The security condition was made because exposing people to the risk is unnecessary.
Those who hold tickets can have them refunded or choose to change the date of the trip. This is the first time trips have been suspended due to violence but others were cancelled due to weather conditions. Through social media networks announcements will be made when tours resume.
