Travelling the Roads of Nicaragua

Driving in Nicaragua is a very different experience versus driving across the US, and travelers and travelers should understand that previous to traveling along the Nicaraguan countryside. As a common law, there are just a small number paved roads, mainly major highways, and yet those are not in good condition. Secondary roads, if you can even consider them as that, are unpaved and rough, full of potholes and hazards, not lighted, and have no shoulder.

Driving in the country is done on the right-hand side, as it is in the U.S. Visitors are warned that when choosing to visit Costa Rica or the Honduras for the duration of their visit to Nicaragua, they should cross the borders at the main border-crossing sites, Las Manos and Penas Blancas. Traffic laws are very diverse in the country as well. Travelers involved in a wreck where a person is killed is immediately arrested until the cause of the fender bender can be discovered. You should never change a vehicle involved in the car crash until the police arrive or the accountability automatically lands on the individual who changed the position of the vehicle.

While the government is investing funds for infrastructure, consisting of bettering roads and bridges, the rainy season keeps on taking its toll on the highways. Even the best highways in the nation include dangers that can bring about a wreck. Visitors to the nation are intensely directed to carry insurance, make sure their vehicle is in total compliance with Nicaraguan transit law and to always carry a cell phone should your vehicle gets trapped has engine trouble in the countryside. Better yet, visitors are directed to take on a trained driver acquainted with the roads in the wilderness and let him drive you around. Never ride on a public transit bus, as they are in bad shape and riddled with lawbreakers.
