There are very few published sources on Nicaraguan awards. However, one light in the darkness is a book published in 2002 by Luis H. Flores called"Nicaragua: It's Coins, Paper Money, Medals, Tokens".  The section on medals (which also covers military insignia) runs just over 100 pages and illustrates many of the awards from the Daniel Ortega period. This is the only place I've ever seen these Ortega-era awards.  It's a very hard book to find, but might be available through numismatic book dealers.

A beautiful Cuban Order of Solidarity. Great acquisition indeed, I truly envy. I have been looking for it for a long time.

Below you can find the list of the ribbon bars from your photo. The remaining three are unknown to me at the moment, but they are most probably Czechoslovak as well. The tunic certainly belonged to a high-ranking Czechoslovak military and comes from the 2nd half of 1980s.
