Travelling the Roads of Nicaragua

Traveling in Nicaragua is an exceedingly different experience versus traveling in the US, and travelers and travelers must understand that previous to hitting the Nicaraguan countryside. As a common law, there are merely a couple of paved roads, mostly key highways, and yet those are not in good condition. Secondary roads, if you can even think of them as that, are not paved and uneven, filled with potholes and obstacles, unlit, and have no shoulder.

Traveling in the country is done on the right-hand side, like it is in the U.S. Visitors are cautioned that when traveling to Costa Rica or the Honduras during their stay in Nicaragua, they are to go across the borders at the main border-crossing locations, Las Manos and Penas Blancas. Traffic laws are very different in the country as well. Travelers involved in a wreck where a person is killed is immediately arrested till the reason of the wreck can be discovered. You should never change a car involved in the accident till the police arrive or the liability automatically lands on the person who moved the car.

While the government is financing funds for infrastructure, consisting of bettering roads and bridges, the rainy season keeps on taking its toll on the highways. Still the best highways in the country contain hazards that can cause a wreck. Tourist to the country are fiercely recommended to retain insurance, be positive their car is in full observance with Nicaraguan transit law and to continuously have a cell phone in case your car gets trapped has engine trouble in a rural area. Even better, visitors are instructed to take on a trained driver familiar with the roads in the wilderness and let him chauffer you around. At no time ride on a public transit bus, as they are in poor shape and rife with crooks.
