driving to Nicaragua
Recently I have seen more comments about driving to Nicaragua. I am planning to move in the middle of June and am curious and also a little trepidatious. Driving through Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras seems like a risky plan, perhaps my fear of the unknown in a foreign language. My starting point would be either Laredo or Brownsville, Texas. I know that the trip would be about 2500 miles but have no idea of the timing or safety in the roadside accommodations. The consideration of the trip would be to transport goods and a vehicle. I had the idea that it was best to purchase a vehicle in Nicaragua, probably diesel, rather than import all the environmental bells and whistle from the US. The goods that I would bring are only books, several thousand. They weigh a ton, So... risk versus freight, I would imagine that the tax on books would be the same.
