"Rivas" Rivas by MalenaN

Rivas Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 6 photos

All three transportation tips on this page have I also got on other pages. But as Rivas is a place where many people change transportation I thought it could be good to have them here as well, in case someone looks in the Rivas travel guide in search of how to travel on from the town.

Rivas is situated in southwestern Nicaragua, between the Pacific Ocean and Lake Nicaragua. It is the regional capital in Departamento de Rivas, which is one of the wealthiest departments in the country. The economy is mainly based on cattle ranching, agriculture and tourism. In Rivas town there are some colonial architecture and by the central park is the cathedral. In Rivas there is also a Museum of Anthropology.

    As always, very thorough transport tips Malena, and I do admire how you travel alone in these places - I know I wouldn't do it!

    Again, excellent transportation tips. Sounds like the taxi drivers are a little too aggressive though.

    You capture Latin American travel well, Malena. Sounds like a classic transport hub, many hate them but they are generally some of the most authentic places you see....well taking away the touts.

    Great transportation tips! You have to take several forms of transportation to get where you are going. I really admire you for your courage to travel alone--the sights make it very worthwile though.
