This is the map for you if you are looking specifically for the beaches and hiking trails between Gigante and San Juan del Sur. We also recommend the Full Rivas map bundle which includes the entire Rivas Department as well as 10 additional recommended route maps which specifically show the best routes for hiking, biking, and motorcycling! Rivas Department Central includes the areas between San Jorge, Nancimi, and Gigante down to between La Virgen and San Juan del Sur. It includes inset maps of El Coyol, Gigante, La Virgen, Las Piedras, Los Pinos, Maderas, Marsella, Majagual, Nancimi, Palmar, Rivas, San Jorge, Tola, Vera Cruz, and four maps of the San Juan del Sur area (Route 16, Talanguera, South Beach Road, and San Juan del Sur Central). It also includes an inset map of the difficult trail connection between the Gigante and San Juan del Sur areas. Nicaragua is like one giant jungle adventure park. You absolutely need reliable maps in order to navigate which routes are best for safe, speedy travel. You also want to know which routes are best for hiking, mountain biking, motorcycling, and 4wd adventures. All Eco Travel Maps are created in person. Each and every road, motorcycle route, and hiking trail has been traveled and mapped in person. The businesses have been verified in person. The water crossings, bus stops, and view points all have been noted by a person who is actually standing at these locations. You cannot feel comfortable exploring a foreign country if you do not know where the essential services are located. All Eco Travel Maps (even the inset maps) display our map symbols in meticulously structured legends which have been specifically designed for first world users traveling in third world countries. All Eco Travel Maps display routes in the following categories: Paved Highways (suitable for all vehicles), Dirt Highways (usually suitable for all vehicles), Paved City Roads (suitable for all vehicles), Good Dirt Roads (usually suitable for all 4wd vehicles and motorcycles), Rough Dirt Roads (only suitable for 4wd adventures and advanced motorcycle skills), Motorcycle Routes (only suitable for advanced motorcycle skills), and Foot Paths (not suitable for motorized travel). Please note, during the rainy months of August, September, October, and November all dirt roads and dirt highways become much more difficult. The symbols are organized in easily referenced shape and color categories which smoothly translate into a variety of languages. Categories include consumables, services, durable goods, administration, professional offices, medical facilities, and transportation repairs. Colors indicate subcategories. For instance, ‘consumables’ are represented by baskets. A red basket is a pulperia (a small food market) while a blue basket is a bottled water store, and a purple basket is for beans, grains, and rice. The word “consumable” translates to “consummables” in French, “consumibles” in Spanish, and “materiali de consumo” in Italian. Another category is ‘services’ (“servicios” in Spanish, “service” in French, “seirbhis” in Irish, “servizio” in Italian, and “sabisu” in Japanese). Services are represented by triangles. As you read above, a basket indicates consumables while red indicates food. So, while a red basket is a small food store, a red triangle is a restaurant, and a red shopping cart is a supermarket. If you are looking for food, look for red. If you are looking for services (restaurant, bar, lodging, etc) look for a triangle. Finally, you will want to know where all the cool stuff is. Eco Travel Maps shows you where the beaches, parks, views, and waterfalls are, among other things. We have spent the last three years searching every inch of the Rivas Department just so you (our wonderful customer!) will have all of that information at your fingertips. To utilize the full benefit of our work, we highly recommend the “Full Rivas Department” map set as it includes one full map of Rivas routes, all three Rivas maps (South, Central, and North), all insets, and also ten additional maps showcasing our most recommended routes for the hiking, biking, and motorcycling.
