I would prefer NOT to pay $800+ for airfare. I would be willing to fly in to Costa Rica first and visit and fly from there to Big Corn if possible. (I will then take ferry to Little Corn--final destination). I would like to avoid traveling from Managua to Bluefields by land as I had some people tell me that it was miserable for them. I may be willing to travel from San Jose, Costa Rica to Bluefields if the bus trip was fairly comfortable and could save me a few hundred dollars. I found an airfare from SLC to San Jose for around $300. Any suggestions/advice?
