Pura Vida Travels - A Guide To Travel In Latin America

After our boat ride it was time to head back to Managua. Unfortunately for us, the police had other ideas. Apparently, we were going the wrong way on a one-way street while we were leaving the park. Of course, the road wasn't marked one-way, you just have to know that. Getting stopped by the cops in Nicaragua isn't exactly a pleasant experience. There was a point in the process when Johnny was furiously digging around the car for documents when I thought we might be going to jail. I had a copy of my passport but I didn't have a copy of my "tourist card" which shows when I entered the country. The cop didn't like that very much. Anyway, after 30 minutes of furious negotiations Johnny got us off with just a warning so it was a happy ending.
