Incredible, there are many towns on the east coast with absolutely no roads!

EDIT:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluefields
It says that until few years ago Bluefield, the main city on the Atlantic wasn't accessible by car but now it is (although the road is gravel and may be closed for bad weather). I read that the map on the previous page is from 2002 and a lot of progress has happened since then.

Bluefield wasn't accesible by car? So they probably had to take a ferry to the city. A lot of Highways are being built in Nicaragua.

lo que me parecio curioso cuando fui a nicaragua que algunas carreteras son adoquinadas, no son de asfalto, para tener y poner todo ese adoquin, les tuvo que haber llevado tiempito

correct I spent some time in "Nica" 5 years ago and I must say the north-east and the east (where Bluefield is) was that time inaccesible. you wanted to go to Bluefield then the only speedy way was an airplane - or if you the time was not a factor - a boat trip.

anyway: beautiful country !!!!

Did all main highways have their route numbers such as this one?



Beautiful place where is that? Little Corn Island?

no, little corn island does not have any cobblestone roads. I would say the easiest way to go around the little corn island is to have its own boat. I do not remember any car there ...

you know, that in Managua some streets have no names ? if you want to go to a specific location you just say for example:
"ok, this is two blocks from bus station to the south on the left side"
this was as of 2007 since then I do not think the situation has got changed.

Strange for a city to NOT have any street signs. It would make the infrastructure of the city very difficult. Most Likely (hopefully) they put street signs by now because Managua is a big city and the government needed to improve the situation by putting street signs.

It's a narrow bridge sign, Two cars can not go out there at the same time.

I think all or most of the streets have names, but only on maps, no one knows the name of any street because nobody uses them.

They do have names, but only on maps . I wonder when they're going to put those signs on every streets. The reason in why most people don't know their names is because there are no street signs... I Heard they used the same grid street plan as Miami. E.g. Southeast 84th Street.

I wonder if the new developments in the suburbs have their own street signs...

in fact there is some logic in no names.

imagine you need to get to the small street close to the bus station. even if you know its name, more important is how to get there. and instead of "knowing the street name" you get in return direction at once !

so if somebody tells you: "ok I live at Augusto Sandino street". usually you next step is to take the map and find it by yourself. and then to proceed.

now, if somebody tells you: "ok, I live two block south of the bus sation" then everybody knows that bus station, and you do not need to locate the street anymore. you already know that.
