Is it possible to go from south nicaragua to san josé via monteverde?

Hey! ! My family and I are on a one year trip around the world . We are in Ecuador now, but go to Brazil in two weeks. After two months in Brazil , the idea is to go to Nicaragua.After one to two months, we move on to Mexico just for some days, by plane from San José, CR, because it's cheaper. What I really should ask about was : Is it possible to get from one place to the south - Nicaragua to San José via Monteverde by bus ? Or are there other possibilities ?:

1 week... Nica, Panama, or El Salvador?

Traveling for a week in mid November... looking to stay more or less in one place. Hoping to minimize time wasted on travel although don't mind a bit of a trek to and from airport each way. Only requirements are a great beach and some hammocks. Have travelled lots but never in central america - really don't need anywhere fancy, just relatively clean with a good vibe (although hopefully not full on spring break-esque party scene). Would be ideal to surf a bit but not a must. Torn between Panama,…

Microbus UCA to Leon. How late do they run?

I arrive MGA at 7:30pm. I'm guessing I could arrive UCA at 9pm. How late do the microbuses run from UCA to Leon? If they're not running that late, should I look into other options or stay the night in Managua and leave to Leon in the morning. Thanks all!
