San Carlos (Nicaragua)
Earth : North America : Central America : Nicaragua : Rio San Juan Region : San Carlos (Nicaragua)
San Carlos is kind of the local transportation hub. That doesn t mean that there is a lot going on but if you move in the region you can t miss San Carlos. In November 2009 the municipality inaugurated the brand new Malecon which gave a necessary face-lifiting to the city.
There are several ways to get into San Carlos.
Update: Due to posters on Thorn Tree Forum the road is now paved, and travel time is around 5 hours.
There are daily flights from Managua (~120 US Round Trip)
It s a small city - everything is in walking distance.
Since November 2009 there is an ATM from Red Cajero XPress "BanPro". The only ATM in this region
Around the Malecon there are several little Sodas where you can get decent food from 7 am in the morning. At 11 am the more fancy restaurants open but don t expect to much. Fish is the thing to eat in San Carlos (if you are not vegetarian)
There are several budget Hospedajes all around the Malecon and in the streets leading up the hill.
If you exit the Migration building, boats to Solentiname are on the left side (next building), boats to El Castillo leave on the right side (~ 5 minute walk). When in doubt, ask someone.
