Ok. Anyone have this info??

If I have a connecting flight and/or layover (hello Aviana i love you!!) ...in San Salvador... Does my nica cedula serve for entry and going to hotel... Almost superceding us passport?
I am guessing yes, but have not recieved confirmation. Might seem like a meaningless detail, but... Maybe not.

(Longtime lurker pirate recall you from phil, whom I miss, we had a falling out over bitcoin and trump LOL). Ciao. Gracias.

If you are the Diane from Lake Apanás who turned me on to Open Culture, yes I remember you well.

I DON'T remember much about bitcoin,, but Trump is a divisive figure. Still.

I stopped by to see fyl once at his new hotel in Guatemala; he seemed content and doing well.

To your question. You will be able to travel from El Salvador to Nicaragua with your cedula and avoid any migration fees. Honduras bumped theirs to $12. As a resident you could avoid that. Whether they will let you ENTER El Salvador with just the cedula,, I don't know. A Nica would have a passport to travel out of C4.



You saw from my previous post that all of CA except Nicaragua is permitting untested travel with proof of vaccination ? You can get a free PCR test in the US,, which might get you into Nicaragua. I believe that there is quite a layover in San Salvador,, I remember 12 hours.


I assume that you are taking the Tica bus from San Salvador ? The Tica bus people would know of a testing place in San Salvador if it looks like the timing will not work. Remember, it bears repeating,, Nicaragua will not accept your proof of vaccination -unless something has changed in the last two weeks. It has to be PCR. They let us in twice with antigen tests, but this last time,, no cigar. We rode the bus back to Choluteca to get a PCR test.


Good luck with your trip!

Thanks so much pirate for a fine reply. Apologies for the delayed response!
Actually, am flying home from FL. And trying to keep things streamlined after 25 years of this (and now plandemic kink in the works on steroids...) But anyway think i found my solution thank god i cant BELIEVE how complicated it all got. Never should have returned stateside omg. So in a nutshell MIAMI direct to MGA via AVIANCA is the only way to go. And anyone reading this? Copa and Taca a distant second. (I have been told last year, that the nica PTB are involved w avianca somewhat AND that it operates some/most/all? of the intra country flights. That and being based in nearby SAL, theyve got the slickest technical handshake of automated paperwork w the gobierno. (i can vouch from last jan.) So... When in rome..
Your advice sir and comments much appreciated. I had been pondering varient (pardon me) options. From my normal route.

I think this forum would be... (i dont use facebook, theres a gringo tribe sjds folks refer me to there)... a good place herein to have a running topic on flying airlines airports routes pcrs and the full blown majoneys of travel to from nica in the time of coronaville. Buses used to be fun but a widow alone in 60s no more.
And winded at that.
Sorry the length!! Cheers to all. db

I have so much fun on the local buses, always an adventure and the locals always interested in chatting.

But, the logistics are infinitely more demanding, especially if you have any baggage. And outside of Nicaragua the buses like to run overnight, especially true of Mexico.

I still drive everywhere, Having a safe place to stash all of your stuff, ability to go where you please, when you please, means a lot to me.

But, I do get tripped up a bit, and wind up on a bus from time to time. When we went to Mexico in March, Guatemala noticed that while I still had an open permit, it only had a few days left on it. They wouldn't issue another permit for 90 days, so if I continued on, I might not have been able to get back! So, we parked the truck in front of the police barracks ($10) and continued on via bus. No big deal.

On the Covid test problem at Guasale, I couldn't really drive the truck back into Honduras, even the short distance to Choluteca, because I'd closed out the permit. So we left it in front of the immigration building, and took the bus to Choluteca and back to the border.

Again,, no big deal.

You are coming back to an absolutely beautiful winter. Lots of sun, just enough rain. Spectacular sunsets due to the dust from the Sahara.
