Trying to plan a trip to Nicaragua this coming March for a week or two. We are thinking about renting a truck and just traveling the west coast to get lost and find some spots. Anyone have any suggestions on locations to check out? Also, how safe is Nicaragua to travel around like that? I haven't heard to many bad stories, but my friend's cousin that lives down that way recently warned us about traveling there so I just wanted to get some peoples opinions/past experiences. I'm not concerned with your typical thievery type stuff, I just don't feel like getting kidnapped haha. Thanks for the help!
