Driving to Playa Pochomil Viejo is not a difficult task and you can make the entire trip with a compact car. You won’t need a 4×4. The roads to and from Pochomil are mostly paved and well maintained.
The last 5 minutes of your drive into Pochomil is absolutely magnificent. There is a two mile entry that is a tunnel of large, magestic trees. Our video below doesnt do it justice but you can check it out below.
This entryway used to be the road to the former Nicaraguan dictators personal retreat which is now know as Montilimar.
The Trees are regularly painted white at the base of the trees to about 5 ft high. The reason for this is to make the trees more visible at night and to help reduce accidents.
The last 2 miles to get to Playa Pochomil Viejo is a bumpy dirt road. This road is not very smooth so you will travel slowely along this last stretch.
