Getting from Tegucigalpa to Leon

Getting from Tegucigalpa to Leon

We are doing a whistle stop tour of Central America in September, time will be tight so trying to figure out how we'll get from A to B in advance. We have just booked an internal flight from La Ceiba to Tegucigalpa and want to go from there to Leon in Nicaragua, does any one know if you can get a bus there directly from Tegucigalpa? My guide book only gives instructions about how to get to Leon from Managua but it seems like we'd be going back on ourselves if we have to go there first.

I've taken Tica Bus from Siguatepeque (between San Pedro Sula & Tegucigalpa) to Leon. I don't think we had to stop in Managua 1st as I believe we went through Chuloteca and crossed the Honduras/Nicaragua border at Guasaule. Tica Bus does have a few different routes, so I would ask before you book a ticket. http://www.ticabus.com/

As a matter of fact spaintheart is right about it, i think that would be the easies way to get to Leon but make sure that is the right route otherwise you will end up in Managua and then travel back 1.5 hours to Leon.

If you need some help in Nicaragua area let me know
