The U.S. Embassy Regretfully Announces there will not be a July 4th Celebration for U.S. citizens this Year due to Impending Road Construction We regret to inform you that, due to expected road construction that will likely affect access to the U.S. Embassy, the Embassy will be unable to host an event for the private American Citizen community in Nicaragua in honor of July 4th this year.  ‎We encourage private Americans to plan their own celebratory events within their communities. We will pass information about how to access the Embassy as construction progresses.
