Kudos to Molly's commentary
Nice pics as well. I am a single woman who has driven and ridden over 6 times roundtrip to Nicaragua, alone. I have never had any problems and also have ridden at night, though not by choice, but for want of a place to stop and sleep. I use my 6th sense to determine a sketchy place vs one where I'd like to stop. I feel it's a combination of luck and skill. Being a woman in a machismo society as well as being a "chele" alone, I rarely talk to men but rather the women who seem to be extremely curious and helpful. Just my $.02
ps. I am leaving in Sept for another trip, does anyone have any experiences in "Aldama, Mex" as it's one place I'd like to get to know better.
