Bluefields, your gateway to the magnificent Corn Islands. But, also a place not to be missed.
Managua to Bluefields
New direct connection from Managua to Bluefields
There is a new direct connection to Bluefields. The road is still under construction in parts but you can now find a direct bus for 280C$ that takes 8.5 hrs and doesn’t go via El Rama. It seems the other old bus via El Rama isn’t running at the moment, or possibly at all anymore (March 2018).
The schedule is:
From Managua – 9am, 2pm, 9pm, 6am
From Bluefields – 4am, 5.30am, 6.30am, 4pm
You can try calling and reserving you ticket in advance. As one traveller reported in the comments below, this worked for her.
