bilwi

I wonder if a person could chicken bus it to Bilwi? I recall seeing buses heading farther east from Matagalpa. I am not sure how far. I have no plans to fly over. I prefer to take shorter bus rides, and explore each town for a day or 2. No plans for a 18 or 24 hour bus ride all the way there.

Has anyone ever been there? Not sure why I want to go, or what is there, it is just on the map.

Nicaragua, Panama, CR, Belize??

Hi there

I'm new to posting in the forum but have read many past threads. My husband and I (mid-late-twenties) are planning our first trip to central america mid December 13-23 (dates not flexible due to our jobs). We know this is not enough time to really explore all CA has to offer so are wanting to optimize our time in a couple areas with minimal traveling time between locations. Feeling overwhelmed and more confused as ever in pinning down a spot as everything looks so awesome.

We enjoy…

Quick Ometepe Trip

I'll be staying at the Hospedaje Soma in Moyogalpa this upcoming week. It sounds like the owners will be out on holiday and we only will be there for a quick day and a half so wanted to see what some of the best activities would be to take on.

There are two of us and we are definitely down for hiking/biking./general exploring. What are the can't miss things? Will we be limited on anything given road conditions? What's the best way to get around?

Screening at airport for fever?

I have a question about the screening being done at the Managua airport for fever and Ebola. How high a fever is over the limit? What is done if a traveler had a fever---quarantined? Sent back? I'm bringing a group of students in January and you never know if one might have a low grade temperature due to a cold. I want to be sure I know what the rules are and consequences. Thanks for your help!

Is it possible to go from south nicaragua to san josé via monteverde?

Hey! ! My family and I are on a one year trip around the world . We are in Ecuador now, but go to Brazil in two weeks. After two months in Brazil , the idea is to go to Nicaragua.After one to two months, we move on to Mexico just for some days, by plane from San José, CR, because it's cheaper. What I really should ask about was : Is it possible to get from one place to the south - Nicaragua to San José via Monteverde by bus ? Or are there other possibilities ?:
