Get inEdit

By busEdit

There is a direct bus from San Carlos that goes to the town itself

All buses connecting Juigalpa and San Carlos as well as those that go on to Managua can drop you of at the empalme from there it is roughly two kilometers to downtown, so make sure to get a cab or have somebody pick you up

By boatEdit

The boat that connects Granada, Altagracia (on Ometepe) and San Carlos stops here after leaving Ometepe the ride is both longer and more expensive than by bus and depending on the direction of travel you might arrive in the middle of the night.

By planeEdit

There is no airport in town, you can fly (domestically) to San Carlos and Ometepe and take the bus or boat from there as described above.

By carEdit

The carretera from San Carlos to Juigalpa is in a reasonably good state and you should be able to find the empalme. Be careful as both pedestrians and people on horses use the street and it can be hard to see them especially after sunset.

Get aroundEdit



There's an annual bull and horse festival some time in March
