Is an International Driver's License required for Central America or do traveler's get them so they don't have to show their regular license? I'm leaving for Central America (driving) in 29 days.

You don't need an international ID in Central America, but we took one just in case. Yes, it's so that you don't have to give up your State issued ID in case you get jerked around.
