Feb 9: Back to Managua
Breakfast at Borders Coffee in El Castillo, they are slow but their coffee and natural juices are pretty good and it's easy to meet other travelers and chat.
The fast boat back to San Carlos is much better than the previous slow one. I got the very last two seats thanks to smiling ; ) so early reservation recommended.
Pm spent at the Internet cafe by the dock, dinner at El Granadino was good, big, and lil pricey.
10pm bus back to Managua. They have paved the entire road recently so the trip is much better and faster than it used to be: we arrived at the Managua airport 3.45am, including two unnecessarily long stops at comedores and a military passport and bags check. Book your bus seats hrs in advance. Unfortunately these buses are not very comfy and suspensions are basically missing so sleeping is not easy.
The airport on the other end is nice and clean and we could have some rest before our flight to Big Corn at 6.30am.
