Las Peñitas to Lake Apoyo

One chicken bus,  two express buses,  several taxis. The express buses are the way to go. Being mini vans that leave when full, they don’t have as many stops as chicken buses and no ultra squishing with people and assorted luggage. For two bucks I travelled 90 odd kms in 1.5 hours. Another another dollar took me from Managua to the Apoyo turnoff and a $4 taxi the last five km to my room at Peace Project.

Skirted Managua the capital.

Lake Apoyo is in a volcano crater and the is lovely to swim in and just warm. The list point is 700m below sea level.
