Travelling the Roads of Nicaragua

Traveling in Nicaragua is an exceedingly different experience versus traveling across the US, and tourists and travelers should understand that before hitting the Nicaraguan roads. As a common rule, there are merely a small number paved roads, mainly main highways, and yet those are in bad order. Secondary roads, if you can even consider them as that, are not paved and rutted, containing potholes and obstructions, unlit, and have no shoulder.

Traveling across the country is done on the right-hand side, as it is in the U.S. Travelers are cautioned that when traveling to Costa Rica or the Honduras for the duration of their visit to 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 an accident in which an individual dies is instantly under arrest till the cause of the wreck can be determined. You should never change a car involved in the car crash till the police get there or the liability consequently falls on the individual who moved the car.

While the government is devoting funds for infrastructure, consisting of bettering roads and bridges, the rainy season continues to take its toll on the highways. Even the best highways in the country have dangers that can bring about a wreck. Travelers to the country are intensely advised to retain insurance, be positive their car 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 the countryside. Better yet, visitors are advised to hire a qualified driver acquainted with the roads in the countryside and let him chauffer you everywhere. Never take a public transit bus, as they are in bad shape and rife with lawbreakers.
