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 this “Full Rivas Department” map set which includes all of the North, South, and Central maps as well as one full "Routes Only" map (in three parts), and TEN ADDITIONAL MAPS showcasing our most recommended routes for hiking, biking, and motorcycling. Nicaragua is like one giant jungle adventure park. You absolutely need reliable maps to navigate which routes are best for safe, speedy travel. You also need to know which routes are best for hiking, mountain biking, motorcycling, and 4wd adventures. Rivas Department South includes the area between La Virgen and San Juan del Sur down to the border of Costa Rica. It includes inset maps of Cardenas, Escamequita, La Virgen, Maderas, Marsella, Majagual, El Ostional, Pochote, Sapoa, and also four insets of the San Juan del Sur area (Route 16, San Juan del Sur Central, South Beach Road, and Talanguera). Rivas Department North includes the area between Pica Pica and El Astillero down to the area between San Jorge, Tola, and Gigante. It includes inset maps of Apompua, Astillero, Barrio Nuevo, Belen, Buenos Aires, Cangrejal, Chacalapa, El Coyol, El Limon Dos, Gigante, Ingenio Benjamin Zeledon, Las Banderas, Las Delicias, Las Piedras, Las Salinas, Los Pinos, Nancimi, Popoyo, Potosi, Rivas City, San Jorge, San Juan Viejo, Santa Barbara, and Tola. 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. 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. 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. 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 symbols in meticulously structured legends which have been specifically designed for first world users traveling in third world countries. 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. Each map - even the insets - contains a symbols legend which you can reference quickly at any time. 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. The Full Rivas package of maps is the ultimate collection of information plus you get the bonus of ten extra recommended routes and the three 'routes only' maps which cover the entire department.
