Getting Around Nicaragua Overview

Getting around Nicaragua is generally not a difficult prospect. Although the country is the largest in Central America, most of the main tourist destinations are concentrated in a relatively small strip of land along the Pacific Coast. The distances in this region are not overwhelming and all the major places of interest are connected by a network of relatively good roads—by Central American standards— including the Pan-American Highway, which runs the entire length of the country.

Nicaragua has an extensive local bus service that takes advantage of the good roads; you can also rent a car, or even bicycle around the Pacific region with relative ease.

On the Caribbean side of the country the situation is very different; getting around by car or bus can be extremely difficult, especially during the rainy season. The only serious way to get to, or around, this region is by plane or by boat, along Nicaragua’s many rivers and lakes.
