Easiest nice beach to reach by bus from Managua for a weekendJan 13, 2016, 4:45 PMGood day. The headline says it all. Looking for recommendations for a nice beach close to Managua suitable for a weekend break and reachable by bus without too many hassles.
Thanks in advance.

Two come to mind. The easiest and closest is Masachapa/Pochomil and the other would be La Boquita in Carazo department.
The first you would take the bus from Israel Lewites market. The second you would take an expresso from la UCA to Diriamba, then a local bus from Diriamba to La Boquita. Both have restaurants, hotels, and a tourism infrastructure.
You’d probably actually get to the beach quicker going to La Boquita as the Pochomil bus is a real “Ordinario” chicken bus that takes at least two hours to get there! The bus from Diriamba continues onto Casares after stopping in La Boquita, so that’s another option for you.
Cheers and enjoy!

Yes there are definitely some nice beaches just an hour or a bit more from Managua that are easily accessed via public bus. This post lists Pochomil/Masachapa and also La Boquita. I remembered at the end there that the same bus that goes from Diramba to La Boquita also continues on to Carares beach, which is another nice beach to go to from Managua.
