At the top of the list is Ecuador, while Trinidad & Tobag is in last place.

Following is the ranking for Central American countries:

1. Panama.

The high investment in infrastructure is reflected by the satisfaction of its inhabitants. Being a country that hosts many foreign companies, its road infrastructure has been a priority.

2. Nicaragua.

Nearly 2.000 kilometres of national road has been rehabilitated, constructed or improve in the last year. The country has also improved 1.062 metres of bridges, to the greater satisfaction of Nicaraguans.

3. El Salvador.
