Travelling the Roads of Nicaragua

Traveling in Nicaragua is an extremely different experience versus traveling in the US, and sightseers and travelers should be aware of that previous to traveling along the Nicaraguan countryside. As a universal rule, there are just a small number paved roads, primarily major highways, and yet those are in bad condition. Secondary roads, if you can even consider them as that, are not paved and rough, full of potholes and hazards, unlit, and have no shoulder.

Traveling across the country is done on the right-hand side, like it is in the U.S. Tourists are told that when choosing to visit Costa Rica or the Honduras during their stay in Nicaragua, they only cross the borders at the main border-crossing locations, Las Manos and Penas Blancas. Traffic laws are very diverse in the country as well. Drivers involved in a wreck where a person is killed is immediately under arrest till the source of the accident can be verified. You should never move a car involved in the car crash till the police arrive or the liability automatically falls on the individual who changed the position of the car.

As the government is investing funds for infrastructure, consisting of upgrading roads and bridges, the rainy season continues to take its toll on the highways. Still the best roads in the nation have dangers that can lead to a crash. Tourist to the nation are intensely directed to retain insurance, make sure their car is in full accordance with Nicaraguan transit law and to always have a cell phone in case your car gets stuck has engine trouble in a rural area. Even better, tourists are instructed to take on a professional driver familiar with the area in the country and let him drive you around. At no time take a public transit bus, as they are in poor condition and riddled with lawbreakers.
