Transportation throughout Nicaragua

We are anticipating a trip from Managua to Granada (2 nights) then on to the coast (San Juan de la Sur -- also 2 nights). What is the best means of transportation -- money is not the is but we are also adventurous and well traveled. Would renting a car work or taxis or public transportation?

We are anticipating doing the canopy tour near Granada (like to be active but also like history, wildlife) and would also appreciate suggestions of where to visit for our first, short trip to the country including sites, hotels, restaurants.

Thanks for any help or any website suggestions.

Hello , not quite sure if you are back from your trip or still planning...
Public transportation is not reliable, better said very bad. Your two options are:
1- Renting a car, with a driver for peace of mind.
2- Contact Carelis Tours, they do provide transportation.
As a born and raised Nicaraguan , would like to hear your opinion on this trip. What do you think of the country, the people, the places you visited...

We (two ladies, 60s) went to Nicaragua last July, took public transportation everywhere, had a ball.

We took taxis, buses, ferries (all 3 dirt cheap). . . all were fine, we never felt unsafe, one of the reasons we had such a great time.

I typed up my travelog and would be happy to send it if you're interested. Email me at [email protected].

We LOVED Nicarague . . .

Buen viaje,
Sandy (in Denton)

Here is a place I came across on the web a couple months ago, been thinking about maybe a stop there before/after Costa Rica. Looks really interesting, though I don't know about having no screens, makes me nervous. But the suspension bridge to the main lodge looks really cool. I think they just opened.
