Airfare to Nicaragua Is too Expensive

January 22, 2010

Dear Nica Times:

I just read an article “Nicaragua Targets AARP Crowd” (NT, July 31, 2009). My suggestion would be to subsidize air travel to Nicaragua.

My idea is to talk my wife into retiring part of the year to Mexico, although I am open to other countries, and Nicaragua sounds good to me.

I would like to live in Nicaragua maybe six months of the year, and return to Philadelphia for the rest of the year when the weather here gets warm again. The only problem is the price of airfare.

Is there a way to get a good deal on airfare and then sell it at cost to the retirees? I still have at least four to seven years left before I retire. But I am planning now.
