There is a few km of dirt on the way to San Ramon. This is also a great ride! There is a fairly sketchy 20 km just past Muy Muy, but the rest of the road is good. The traffic on the drive thru Managua luckily was not too bad since the temperature was 37.5.

We went to visit Salvador’s grandma at her farm. They have an equine therapy center for disabled children. They also have trained horses that dance.
