Nicaragua -- connection

Hello... I am planning to fly from Corn Island to Managua (MGA) airport on La Costena airlines, to connect on a separate ticket to an Int'l flight on TACA to San Salvador. I believe the flight from Corn Island makes a 20 min stop in Bluefields. The flight schedule shows the La Costena flight arriving MGA at 2:05 PM and the TACA flight departing MGA at 5:30 PM, which is a 3h25min connection from domestic to International. Remember, these will be separate tickets so TACA will not know I am coming and if the Corn Island flight is greatly delayed, I don't believe TACA will protect me.

Generally, I am quite conservative in scheduling these kinds of connections, so I was just wondering if it was too risky. I've heard a couple of things about the Corn Island flight delays, but this will be at the end of March, so I'm not sure how much to expect the weather to disrupt the schedules.

Any ideas or suggestions from those who have done the Corn Island trip or if this is a reasonable connection?
