I've bought great coffee beans in Guatemala at Lake Atitlan, but where do I buy good ones in Nicaragua? I will be in Leon, San Juan del Sur.
Please give me more info on fishing. Cost? How rough is the ocean? Etc
Is there direct buses everyday to San Jose?.
Will the San Jorge bus run on Good Friday March 25,2016 back to Managua?

I am planning a one month trip to Managua to study Spanish. I am interested in renting a house that I found on Airbnb. The house is located in Barrio Riguero (as far as I can see from the map) and specifically at the corner of Pista Juan Pablo II and Boulevard Don Bosco. I'd love some info on this area, specifically safety concerns, walkability and things to do (shopping and restaurants). Regarding the safety question, I've travelled all over Central America and am a very prudent traveller (no walking alone after dark, no carrying of valuables, no dressing 'flashy' etc.) so I know the risks and I'm not looking for small town North America safe - just making sure I haven't chosen an area that's relatively bad.
Thank you so much in advance,
Hey guys! Travelling solo through Nicaragua from late nov - mid december. Arriving at the airport in the afternnon and am wondering what the best/safest way is to get from the airport to Leon? Should I hire a cab to get me to the UCA and then get on a bus to Leon? Or would it be better to just a hire a company like paxeos? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
One of my closest friends just arrived to Managua last night. He's a 38 year old urban traveler staying in the entertainment district (Hotel Internacional). Do you have any suggestions for nearby places to visit during the day and any tips on Nicaragua's nightlife?
I am 38, female, traveling alone, and I want to (1) stay active (biking, kayaking, SUP, hiking, etc) and (2) meet other people my age to hang out with and (lightly) party. I am interested in the Corn Islands and Ometepe, and Matagalpa. Really if I had a companion, I'd probably want to spend more time in the Cloud Forests and go to Jiquilillo, but I think it may be too isolated to do alone... just guessing, and I do want to check out the Caribbean vibe. I'm from New Orleans and really do not like super touristy set-ups... and I don't want to hang out with only 20-year-olds. Any suggestions on places (from towns to individual businesses) to stay (hostels with a mix of ages is ideal)?
Any recommendations on where to stay for one night, I'm traveling solo and on a backpackers budget. Very few places listed online, but sure there must be more options. Any suggestions?
I want to visit Nicaragua for 7 days, is it easy to travel by bus from one city to another?
Hey there, is it possible to travel to Hacienda Iguana (near Panga Drops) by public transport?

How do I get to San Juan del sur NICARAGUA ?
I have heard the beaches are extremely windy in April in San Juan del Sur so that hanging on the beach during April is not a pleasant experience? True or false?
Is there a bus from Masaya to Esteli and if so the time and place to get it. thanks
Hello, I'll be in the San Juan area in mid-March, does anyone know if it possible to do some whale/dolphin watching tours via boat? Is it fairly easy to do and find them?
Also we were interested in visiting some turtles but may be the wrong time of year.. however we heard La Flor Beach Reserve offers year round turtle releases, is that true? Or do you know where we may be able to do some turtle watching?
Appreciate any time you can spare!
Is there daily bus travel from San Jorge to San Carlos? I will be on Ometepe and want to go to San Carlos, down the Río San Juan and return to Granada. Are buses frequent, daily?
I am travelling to Nicaragua mid January, solo female,my flight arrives late so I have arranged hotel with pickup in Managua and I plan on doing the typical gringo trail.My question is this - do I
-A- stay overnight in Managua,next day take microbus from UCA to Leon (safe?) then make my way to Grenada , Omepete, SJDS .... or
-B- when I arrive at airport go straight to Grenada to overnight,then do Omepete, SJDS, Leon........also keep in mind I want to hit up Corn islands and wasn't sure when I should do that....right away after arriving or later on in trip?I have 28 days total to burn.
My husband and I will be travelling to Nicaragua for one week in March - arriving midday on a Saturday and leaving midday the following Saturday - six full days/seven nights total.
We are trying to come up with an itinerary so that we can book accommodations in advance. We would definitely like to stay in León, hike a nearby volcano and either do a day trip to Las Peñitas or possibly stay there for one night. We are also interested in several sights around Granada, but we are not interested in Granada itself at all. We've done a lot of reading and based on our past travel experience, it doesn't sound like somewhere we need/want to spend any time in.
Here is exactly what we would like to do:
- Kayak around Las Isletas
- Go for a dip and relax in Laguna de Apoyo
- Visit Volcán Mombacho and do one of the hikes
León and Around
- Explore the city, see the cathedral and art gallery
- Relax in the city (cool bars/cafes)
- Hike/day trip to one of the nearby volcanoes
- Get a good amount of beach time at Las Peñitas (try surfing lessons, relax on beach)
- Possibly stay one night at Las Peñitas to be able to fully relax and enjoy the sunset
Given the time that we have (7 nights, 6 full days, and two half days), how would you suggest we split up our time? How long will we need in Granada to see those specific things? Should we use Granada as a base or should we be staying somewhere else, possibly at one of the accommodations at Laguna de Apoyo?
We want this to be more of a mellow trip so don't want to spend all of our time moving between destinations (even knowing that the distances aren't long).
Thank you very much!
I'm travelling Nicaragua alone from January to March 2015..
I'm 26 y/o, female, and pretty new to travelling. I'm laidback, want to hit up Granada, Leon, and Ometepe Island, hike some volcanos and choose the most cost efficient way. Would love to travel with someone around my age for a bit. Any takers..email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I was thinking about going to La Flor Natural Reserve to see turtles. For what I read, the best chances to spot turtles are at night. If I go during the day, will I see turtles too?
Estabamos pensando en ir a la reserva La Flor (cerca de San Juan del Sur) para ver tortugas. Por lo que veo, las mejores oportunidades de ver tortugas son de noche. pero si vamos de dia, veremos tortugas?
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!
Is there a hospital and what is its name? Should I be concerned about my son getting sick form water or food. Should he get Malaria pills? or Typhoid vaccination? Nervous mom thanks!
What is the best way to travel from Leon to Granada? I understand that the bus goes via Managua, which seems a long way round. I have asked about a private shuttle, but it is very expensive. We are 2 people and will be travelling in January.
Also interested in advice about travel from Granada to San Jose, in Costa Rica.
I am traveling to Nicaragua for three weeks (oct 10th to nov 1) but arriving/leaving from Liberia Costa Rica. Do you think it will be a better experience to travel by foot or rent a car? I will be alone for the first week and with a brother for the following two weeks. We plan on surfing a lot, volcano hiking and chilling.
