=== Hitch-Hiking ===
The hitchability in Central America varies from country to country but generally it is rather good. One good point for hitch-hikers in this sub-continent Hitchhiking is the large number not very common because of trucks that travel up and down the Panamerican highwaycheap bus transportation, and between all major cities. Truck but drivers, although they might tell you that their boss doesn't allow them to carry passengers (which might be true, but unless you drive up to understand what the boss' door he isn't about to find out is hethumb means...), Waiting times vary but are very free people in their jobs: they can drive for as long as they want (and they do, sometimes more not usually longer than 24 hours with no sleep!)20 minutes. In many places, they can the first or second car will stop when and where they want, they have cash from the boss to put diesel in the trucks, and apart from long waits at certain borders for paperwork (which they don't do themselves, letting specialized agencies do it for them), have almost not a worry on their mind! If you do get to travel any significant distance with them, and some drive all the way from Nicaragua up to the Mexican border, you'll probably have a great time, get loads of food bought for you (with the boss' cash!) and be really comfortableGringo.
