transportation PopoyoJan 05, 2016, 3:00 PMI land in managua at 10pm so will stay there that night, but I’m wondering what the options are for getting to popoyo? A public bus would be preferred to keep cost down if it I easy to find?

Once in Managua, you’ll need to get yourself to Mercado Huembes and take a bus to Rivas. The easiest thing at that point would be to hire a taxi to Popoyo, but if you want to keep on the bus program you can go from Rivas to Las Salinas de Nagualpa, then walk or hitchhike the last couple of miles to Popoyo.
For further details take a look at:http://thebusschedule.com/EN/ni/index.php
If the schedule is accurate, you leave Huembes at 7, 9 or 10:30 am and get there by 10, 12, or 1:40 pm, respectively.

A little advice for someone flying into Managua, intending to stay overnight, and then wanting to go to Popoyo, near Tola, Rivas without spending an arm and a leg.
Inexpensive transportation is readily available in Nicaragua if you’re willing to deal with some of the (minor) hassles, you’ll save lots of money!
