Better way to get from Granada to SJDS?We're in Granada and will be heading to SJDS.
So far, it looks like we're going to take a bus from here to Rivas, then catch a taxi to SJDS.
Any tips for that method?
Are there any other options anyone can recommend?
We've already stopped in a few tour operator offices here in Granada and inquired about transport, but nothing was viable ( they had a 4 person minimum - it was out of our budget, etc.).

6Hi, Well, I'm sure many of you out there have done this...Starting at the chaoitic market, we got seats and then the parade up and down the aisle of the bus started. Keep in mind that the bus was packed with people standing in the aisle so these other people had to squeeze by with all their stuff. First came the venders with drinks in plastic bags, the the lady with baked goods, then the one with other food. Then came the blind contra war vet with his harmonica collecting coins in a hat. Then comes in the preacher who hands out pens to everyone that don't write so we all hand back the pens. He continued to preach about this and that almost until we reached Rivas. I probably left out a few characters. It was completely nuts with the music playing and the chickens and just plain craziness for about an hour to Rivas.

9Alright, well we bussed it to Rivas, not bad at all. Then luckily caught a bus almost immediately to SJDS. Worked out pretty nicely actually.
We took a taxi back to Rivas, but the bus ride back to Granada was H-E-DOUBLE-HOCKEY STICKS.
We had to mill around Rivas for nearly 2 HOT hours, it was not so bad. But then when we got back to the bus station the bus to Granada was completely full and we had to stand with our bags. Oh well. Ya live and ya learn :D
