    Hola, muchas gracias por su sitio Internet. Hicimos el viaje Managua-el transito y el bus passa bien entre 12h00 y 12h30, 13h30 y el último a las 15h. El viaje dura aproximadamente 2horas y costo por 2 personas (con dos mochilas y una tabla) 150 córdobas. Veimos también buses en direction de Pochomil en el misma parada entre las 11h30 y las 12h30 pero no recordamos exactement de la hora.
