Travelling the Roads of Nicaragua

Traveling in Nicaragua is an exceedingly dissimilar occurrence versus driving in the US, and travelers and vacationers should understand that previous to traveling along the Nicaraguan countryside. As a general law, there are merely a few paved roads, mostly main highways, and even those are not in good order. Secondary roads, if you can even call them as that, are not paved and uneven, containing potholes and obstacles, not lighted, and have no shoulder.

Traveling across the countryside is done on the right-hand side, as it is in the U.S. Tourists are warned that when considering a visit to Costa Rica or the Honduras during their stay in Nicaragua, they are to cross the borders at the main border-crossing locations, Las Manos and Penas Blancas. Traffic laws are very different in the country as well. Drivers involved in an accident in which a person dies is instantly under arrest until the reason of the accident can be discovered. You should never move a car involved in the fender bender until the police arrive or the accountability consequently falls on the person who moved the car.

At a time when the government is investing funds for infrastructure, including upgrading roads and bridges, the rainy season keeps on taking its toll on the roads. Even the best roads in the country have dangers that can lead to a wreck. Tourist to the country are intensely advised to retain insurance, make sure their car is in total compliance with Nicaraguan transit law and to always have a cell phone should your vehicle gets stuck or breaks down in the countryside. Even better, visitors are directed to hire a professional driver familiar with the roads in the wilderness and let him ferry you everywhere. At no time take a public transit bus, as they are in poor condition and riddled with lawbreakers.
