Las Penitas to Managua airport in the morningHi,
I'm leaving Nicaragua on April 2nd at noon in Managua. I will be staying in Las Penitas at this time and I was wondering if you think I would be okay to leave in the morning from Las Penitas. From what I've read the first bus leave at 5am from there to Leon and from there, I would take a bus to Managua in UCA. When I'll be there I'll just take a taxi to the airport.
Do you think it's possible or I should go to Managa on the first? If you have other idea as well to go to the airport in the morning which is not to expensive since I travel alone let me know!

Las Penitas is about a 20 min. bus ride back to Leon. So, if you catch the first bus at 5 am, you should be able to catch a bus in Leon at around 6 am. (I'm not sure what the bus schedule is) It should take about an hour to get to Managua on a UCA shuttle. So, that's 7 am. Then, a short taxi ride to the airport..so you should be able to get to the airport no later than 8 am. That's plenty of time to catch your plane. Traffic will probably be heavier than normal because of Semana Santa weekend..and the buses don't run over Semana Santa. Once you get into Leon at the UCA station, you can judge the time and if the buses are full, you could ask a taxi driver how much it would be to go to Managua. It shouldn't be over $30 to the airport from Leon. I hope this helps.
