Flying with La Costena? Read this first! | rightsideguide.com.
Long-time readers of the RightSide Guide know that Nicaragua’s beloved airline, La Costeña, does not rank very high on my list of reputable companies. People often ask me why. What has La Costeña done that a traveler should be wary? Why should they consider the more adventurous land route over a quick and easy flight?
Well my friends, let me tell you that it may very well be the flight that is more adventurous, less quick and more difficult in the end.
My friend Casey at the Right Side Guide (the best guide to the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua) wrote this article for all the people intending to fly the national airline, La Costeña. Scary stuff to be sure but considering what a hassle it is to go via land, river, and sea as the alternative, most will probably still choose to fly. Best of luck and godspeed to you!
