    i've been wanting to do this fishing trip ever since I first came to Nica. The one question I have for my return this December is how do I best get to the lodge from a city like Rivas...is there a ferry or is driving better?

    Response from Montecristo L | Property representative |
    Hello Devin The best bet is driving, You have to driver around lake Nicaragua and from Rivas is about 450 Km drive. Now you may drive from Rivas to Cardenas and Colon and then wait for a boat to take you to San Carlos... More
