Motels in Nicaragua are popular venues for both commercial and non-commercial sexual encounters and thus provide a potential location for the spread of sexually transmitted agents, including the human immunodeficiency virus. Condoms are known to be effective barriers against these infections, but are infrequently used by Nicaraguans. We interviewed all motel owners in one district of Managua and in five randomly selected motels ascertained, by retrieval and inspection, actual rates of condom use by clients. Six out of 26 establishments initially supplied condoms: when provided on entry to the motel condoms were used in 37% of observed encounters. Condom use can be assessed objectively in certain circumstances and this method can provide a reliable outcome measure for condom promotion programmes.
