Bus Transport: Guatemla to Nicaragua
As I just did the homework on this, I figure it is worth a post. As for why a bus, let me just say that COPA inspired me to return to Nicaragua by bus.
- Excursiones "María José"
- This is the one you are not going to find anywhere on-line. They leave from Hotel España, 9a Avenida 15-59, Zona 1 on Tuesday and Saturday (some time in the afternoon) and go to Managua. 16 hours. I forget the price but cheap. Phone is 5400-4510. Trips from Managua leave Sundays and Thursdays at 8AM. Managua number is 2260-0517.
- Leaves at 1PM from Zona 12 arriving in San Salvador at 5PM. Overnight there then leaves at 5AM arriving in Managua at 5PM.
- del SOL
- Leaves at 1:45AM (yes, AM) from some yuppy hotel in Zona 10. Direct, 16 hours.
- King Quality
- They have this fancy web site that doesn't tell you anything and based on the way I have seen them drive I decided it wasn't worth further investigation.
