Chicken bus from Leon to Managua

Hi Guys

I have started running really low on cash and was wondering if anyone knows how to get from Leon to Granada by local buses and how much they would cost. I would imagine you need to change in Managua. Many thanks :)

Go to the bus terminal in Leon and take a minibus to the UCA in Managua ($2 or so). From the UCA take a minibus to Granada ($1 or so).

Remember the minibuses, and the big school buses (chicken buses) have different terminals in each place. So in Leon, they leave from different places, and in Managua they arrive in different places.

Most likely you would want to take the minibus, since even though the big old school buses (chicken buses) will save you a buck or two since they are cheaper, the market you get dropped off at in Managua, and the market you have to leave from are across town, which will cost you more for a taxi to get between.

If you take the minibus, when you get to Managua you will already be in the terminal to grab a minibus to Granada.

As was already mentioned, the total cost of the trip will be around 3 bucks.
