Getting there & away

Estelí is a transportation hub, and its easy access to two major border crossings with Honduras makes it an ideal place to catch a bus to El Salvador.

King Quality and TransNica (713 6574, 843 0757 on Sunday) operate out of the same office, half a block north of PetroNic. TransNica buses go to Costa Rica (US$25, 9:30am) and Tegucigalpa (US$20, 4pm); King Quality serves San Salvador (US$28, 7am) and Tegucigalpa (US$25, 7am).

Del Sol Bus (in Estelí 713 3099, in Managua 270 2547, in San Salvador 503-2257 0505) has one bus that leaves for San Salvad or at 8am daily (US$25).

Ticabus (713 7350; Av Central) offers daily buses to Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula (Honduras), Managua and Costa Rica.

Estelí has two beautiful bus terminals, Cotran Norte and Cotran Sur, located at the south end of the city on the Interamericana.
