Leon to Granada


I will be in Nicaragua from July 28th midday until the 1st of August. I would like to spend time in Leon and Granada. I know I can get to either from Managua but I'm wondering how easy/expensive it is to travel directly from Leon to Granada? Also from Granada I plan to use one of the international buses to cross into CR. Which is the best for coming from Granada? Finally, when it comes to what I will do in the cities, in Leon I'd like to see the city, volcano board, and visit the beach. Any advice on which tour companies or beaches are best? In Granada I want to see the city, Masaya market, Laguna de Apoyo, and Islets of Granada. Any advice about those?

I know I asked a lot of questions (sorry) but I'm trying to plan everything out perfectly since I'll be traveling alone. ANY advice is appreciated. :)

Either Leon or Granada there is a budget tour operator which is Call www.tierratour.com get in touch with them and they normally do all of this activities with many more people at a good price.

Greetings Mary:

I think Bryon nailed it!

Taking the expresso buses (minivans) is the cheapest and most direct method, although you might be crowded. That alternative if you don't want to rent a car is to hire a driver to take you. That would probably run you about $50 or more though.
