Welcome to Managua-El Rama Road

You can make the trip in six hours on a reasonably comfortable (but usually overcrowded) bus, but then you’ll miss the rugged Serranía Amerrisque. In and around these muscular granite peaks are a number of cute ranching pueblos (villages) and the worthwhile city of Juigalpa, linked by twisting, rutted back roads that also connect to Matagalpa and the northern highlands. So, embrace that whole ‘journey is the destination’ cliché, take the slow road and enjoy a welcome blast of earthy Nicaraguan culture before or after diving into the Caribbean.
