    • By bus to San Carlos from Managua

      San Carlos Nov 23, 2014 at 9:37 PM

      Despite the traveler's account above of the trip from San CArlos to Managua by bus, does anyone have more info in the opposite direction? I need to travel to San Carlos on Saturday, January 17, stay overnight in San Carlos and catch a boat across the border the next day - at 10.30am, I believe.

      Does anyone have a schedule for the bus trip and the border crossing?

      Would so much appreciate it!
      Many thanks!

    • Ferry schedule from Altagracia to Granada

      Isla de Ometepe Jan 17, 2014 at 9:51 AM

      I am interested in taking the ferry from Altagracia to Granada. The schedule indicates that the ferry leaves Friday at 24:00 (midnight). Would this mean Thurs night/Friday morning or Friday night/Saturday morning. I'm slightly confused as 24:00 is not actually used in military time. Thanks for helping!

    • Bus to San Juan del Sur

      San Juan del Sur Sep 30, 2013 at 5:34 PM

      Can anyone tell me if there is a bus that travels from Rivas to San Juan del Sur and how much the cost is? We are traveling to Rivas from Costa Rica on the Tica Bus and last time it cost us $25 for a taxi to take us to San Juan del Sur which is expensive and hoping to just take the bus instead. Thanks in advance.

    • San Juan del Sur - Mid November 2011

      San Juan del Sur Oct 27, 2011 at 7:26 PM

      I'm going to San Juan del Sur with a couple of friends mid November for a little over a week. We were thinking of basing there, then visiting Leon, Granada, Bluefields, and Somoto Gorge. We are renting a car for the period we are there. I was curious if anyone can tell me what the gasoline costs are currently to help us estimate our trip costs. We plan to drive to Leon for a day stopping in Granada with an overnight stay, maybe more on way back to San Juan del Sur. I was wondering if Masaya or any where between Granada and San Juan del Sur would be good to see.

      As Somoto Gorge and Bluefields are long drives from there and our time is short, I thought flying to them would be the best idea. I was wondering if someone can tell me the name of any small prop planes flying between San Juan del Sur (looks as Rivas is closest airport) and Bluefield and San Juan del Sur and Somoto (looks as Esteli is closest airport).

      Also if anyone can tell me the typical weather mid November (looks as though it is end of wet season/start of dry) - what would be the day temperature compared to night temperature?

      Thank you in advance for any information anyone can provide.

    • Getting there from San Jose

      San Juan del Sur Apr 24, 2006 at 5:38 PM

      My elderly family is meeting me in San Juan del Sur this summer. I am wondering about the options available to them in getting from San Jose to San Juan del Sur. They are not seasoned travelers, so I'm hoping for something easy and safe for them. Also, since they are coming in from Alaska, I want them to enjoy the hot temps when they arrive, so I'm leaving the Tica bus as a last resort since they seem to be so heavily air conditioned. I'd appreciate any advice!
