Driving Directions from Managua Airport
Coming out of the airport, turn RIGHT onto (Carretera
Stay in your proper lane when turning or the police will give you a
At the first rotunda continue straight. This rotunda
will have a busy bus depot
and large market – don’t get confused – continue straight thru.
At the second rotunda go RIGHT -
onto a tree lined road.
You will pass large white tanks along the right side of the road.
After about 7K there will be a funky intersection – stay RIGHT
– turning onto a
smooth main road going toward Masaya. You will soon pass a large
manufacturing plant called ASTRO. Buses should say to Masaya and
You will come to a T-junction with a white arched building directly in
There will be a sign that says Masaya, Granada, and Penas Blancas to
left and Managua to the right – GO LEFT.
NOTE: Make sure to stop properly at the stop sign here. There are
always cops here. Don’t stop and ask the police for directions –
they’ll find something to give you a ticket for!!
Soon after turning left toward Granada you
will pass a Papa Johns Pizza.
REMEMBER this – this will be your landmark when returning to the
At the next rotunda – continue STRAIGHT thru
– do not take first right or
You will be on the scenic/hectic tour through the center of Masaya!
Now you should be on a 4-lane divided highway… Look for a MAXI
PALI to stop at if you wish to buy snacks or provisions (they
take credit cards!)
At the next rotunda – take a hard right – otherwise
you will drive all the way in to the city of Granada. This rotunda is
a bit different than the others as it has a bike path with yellow
markers. There should be a big factory on the right shortly after.
You are now heading toward CATARINA on a smoothly
paved 2-lane road.
Look for a sign that says CATARINA 6K. You will pass Pueblo Blanco
Near here is a new rotunda – continue in a way that would be
considered straight thru (meaning don’t take your first right turn off
Pass through Catarina (village with beautiful plants), followed by the
small towns San Juan de Oriente (noted for its beautiful pottery), and
then the small towns of Diria and Diriomo.
Stay on the main road toward NANDAIME. As you
approach Volcan Mombocho you will come to a rotunda of sorts – more
like a traffic triangle – stay right and then take a hard RIGHT again
in front of a factory at the base of Mombacho (if you go left you will
end up in Granada)
As you approach Nandaime, you are approaching the Pan American
Just before you reach the Pan American highway you
will come to a Y junction with a
grassy median (and a large pink billboard of Ortega.) Stay left here
and turn LEFT (south) toward NANDAIME.
You may want to top off your gas tank, get drinks or use toilet in
Nandaime – it will be your last proper town before you hit the dirt
About 16 kilometers past NANDAIME, you will cross over the
Puenta Ochomogo Bridge.
About 2 kilometers beyond the bridge look for a large turn off to your
right onto a dirt road with signs for the Chacocente Wildlife Reserve
and yellow wooden signs to Punta Teonaste.
Drive several kilometers until you reach a sort of Y (or T) junction
with many signs. Turn left here. There will be a blue
and white school to your left at this junction.
You will be about 45 minutes on this dirt road. Cross three small
rivers and one cement bridge. Continue to follow the yellow Punta
The first notable landmark upon arriving in Las Salinas is the
Angela’s colorful fruit stand
Just beyond the fruit stand, stay RIGHT and cross over the
As you are driving along this road you will soon see the main house of
Two Brothers on the highest hill to your right. Drive
past the The Holy(Holly)Ground Bakery, round the bend, and take your
first RIGHT onto Bean Hill Road. Take your first LEFT to continue on
Bean Hill Road. Curve right at the well house. Switch now to 4-wheel
drive if you haven’t already – it will be steep in places. Continue up
the hill. Pass through the gates – mind the BUMP at the cattle guard -
and continue up the steep concrete drive to the very top beyond the
pool. Check in at the main house at the very top.
