Shared shuttle Leon to Managua airport - where can I book?

Hi

This is the very last piece of my 'jigsaw'. (I set off on my adventure to Costa Rica & Nicaragua in a few days' time...........).

My trip notes show there is a 9 am shuttle from Leon to Managua airport (which takes 1.5 to 2 hrs).

I'm hoping that this is a shared shuttle service as I am a solo traveller.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a website where I can check out all the details & make my reservation?

Then I'm 'all done'.

Thanks

Bigfoot has a 9 am shuttle (3 hours):

Quetzaltrekkers as well (2.5 hours):

You can book them when you are there.

I know you usually don't mind taking public transport so you could also go to the bus terminal in Leon (walk or tuk tuk or taxi) and take a 2 hour minibus ($2) to the UCA bus station in Managua. And from there a taxi to the airport. You wouldn't save much though because of the taxi in Managua.

Dear Sonia

Thanks for the 2 different options for a shared shuttle.

The quetzaltrekkers one looks best I think. It should get me to the airport soon after 11.30 am. I need to check in by 12.30 pm for my 2 pm flight to the Corn Islands.

That's why I don't want to have the hassle of buses/connections etc.

I'm going to be in Leon for 5 days so I can book it at their office while I am there.

Thanks for all your help & suggestions throughout my trip planning.
