Driver Safety in Nicaragua

Traveling in Nicaragua is a very dissimilar experience versus traveling in the US, and travelers and travelers need to understand that before traveling along the Nicaraguan roads. As a common rule, there are only a small number paved roads, mainly key highways, and still those are in poor shape. Secondary roads, if you can even consider them as that, are unpaved and uneven, full of potholes and obstacles, not lighted, and have no shoulder.

Traveling in the nation is done on the right-hand side, as it is in the U.S. Travelers are warned that when considering a visit to Costa Rica or the Honduras for the duration of their visit to Nicaragua, they should cross the borders at the main border-crossing locations, Las Manos and Penas Blancas. Traffic laws are very diverse in the country as well. Travelers involved in a fender bender where an individual is killed is instantly detained till the reason of the accident can be discovered. You should never change a vehicle involved in the fender bender till the police arrive or the liability automatically lands on the individual who moved the vehicle.

As the government is financing money for infrastructure, including bettering roads and bridges, the rainy season keeps on taking its toll on the roads. Even the best roads in the nation contain threats that can cause a crash. Tourist to the nation are intensely advised to carry insurance, make sure their vehicle is in total accordance with Nicaraguan transit law and to continuously carry a cell phone in case your vehicle gets trapped or breaks down in a rural area. Even better, tourists are directed to hire a qualified driver familiar with the roads in the country and let him chauffer you everywhere. Never ride on a public transit bus, as they are in bad condition and riddled with crooks.
