San Jose, Costa Rica now has uniform, easy to read and spot street and avenida signs. About ten feet high, on the corners of every block.
They really help . . makes navigating the city easier and encourages walking. The city already had a great system of alternating north south, east west streets, avenidas, that made your location easy to determine, if you knew which avenida, street you were on.
Of course, ANY signs in Nicaragua would be a big help . . . How about a few less Ortega billboards and put the money into directional signage ??
