Getting There & Away

Buses from Chinandega's Mercadito run to Padre Ramos via Playa Jiquilillo (US$1, 1½ to two hours, 6:45am, 9:45am, 11:15am, 2:45pm and 4:15pm). Some lodgings in nearby Playa Jiquilillo can arrange transport if contacted in advance. NIC-58 to Jiquilillo from the main NIC-12 highway is unpaved; the last 2km to Padre Ramos is sandy. In Padre Ramos, take the estuary road rather than the beach road, or risk getting stuck in sand.
