Matagalpa to Leon, quick question.I know, another bus question.
But, I'm confused about something. I plan on going from Matagalpa to Leon tomorrow via the cotran station, then to Granada via the UCA station.
I've done this coming the other direction before many times.
The bus schedule website shows an express bus leaving Matagalpa at 6 am. I've never seen express busses that go between Matagalpa and Leon, is this a typo, can anyone confirm this? I've only ever caught the chicken bus, and I really don't feel like enduring that tomorrow if I don't have to.
(PS. For anyone who doesn't know, Matagalpa tours has a shuttle service that takes you from Matagalpa to Granada. If enough people are going, it can cost about 20 dollars each. Can be worth it for those times when your just not in the mood for bus travel. The cost of the shuttle for 1 person is $95...thats why I'm taking the bus.)

1matagalpa to empalme san isidro via a bus to managua, then catch a bus to leon was my first idea. but i am currently in nicaragua and just asked a local and they said it is faster to go to esteli and catch an express bus to leon but they said they only run in the morning and didn't know the times. the "chicken buses" aren't all that bad if you get a seat.
i have spent considerable amount of time in guatemala and have found the bus system here in nicaragua to be better and the buses are in better condition.
