Travelling the Roads of Nicaragua

Driving in Nicaragua is an exceedingly different occurrence versus traveling across the US, and travelers and travelers need to understand that previous to hitting the Nicaraguan countryside. As a universal rule, there are merely a few paved roads, mostly main highways, and yet those are not in good condition. Secondary roads, if you can even consider them as that, are unpaved and rough, containing potholes and hazards, unlit, and have no shoulder.

Driving through the nation is done on the right-hand side, as it is in the U.S. Tourists are cautioned that when considering a visit to Costa Rica or the Honduras for the duration of their stay in Nicaragua, they should cross the borders at the main border-crossing locations, Las Manos and Penas Blancas. Traffic laws are incredibly different in the country as well. Drivers involved in an accident in which someone dies is immediately under arrest till the cause of the accident can be discovered. You must never change a vehicle involved in the fender bender till the police get there or the liability consequently lands on the person who moved the vehicle.

As the government is investing money for infrastructure, including upgrading roads and bridges, the rainy season keeps on taking its toll on the highways. Still the best highways in the nation have dangers that can cause a crash. Visitors to the nation are intensely directed to retain insurance, make sure their vehicle is in total accordance with Nicaraguan transit law and to continuously have a cell phone in case your vehicle gets stuck has engine trouble in the countryside. Better yet, tourists are directed to hire a professional driver familiar with the area in the country and let him ferry you everywhere. On no occasion ride on a public transit bus, as they are in bad condition and riddled with lawbreakers.
