Getting around Nicaragua

Bus travel is the best way to get around Nicaragua. Repurposed, old-fashioned, yellow (though often repainted) American school buses transport the country’s people from town to town and city to city. The buses are jam packed – your luggage will be strapped to the roof – and an amazing way to become instantly immersed in Nicaraguan culture. Just as in most developing nations, there are also refitted vans, or ‘microbuses,’ that cram as many as 15 people into a vehicle originally meant to carry eight and transport them cheaply from point to point in big cities. Taxis are also available in cities and the prices should be negotiated.

Seismologists have estimated that the capital will see major earthquake activity every 50 years or so (it also suffered a brutal quake in 1931).
