Unrest in Nicaragua continues. Although there is no anger directed at foreigners or tourists by either side, it is a time of uncertainty. The barricades that earlier caused us to discontinue service to the airport in Managua, and other cities, are now largely gone. So our private service only has resumed to all locations we were previously serving.

The area around San Juan del Sur remains calm (most violence was in the cities), although some businesses remain closed. To help you sort it all out we now offer a concierge service. Check it out to see some of what is currently available in the San Juan del Sur area. Then call or email for help with anything from current information on what is still open to arranging an entire vacation package for you.

For air travel in and out of Nicaragua, we continue suggesting the international airport in Liberia, Costa Rica (about 20 miles south of the border with Nicaragua). From there, we can take you anywhere in Costa Rica or Nicaragua.

Also because of the current uncertainty, our less expensive scheduled service within Nicaragua is suspended, although scheduled service in Costa Rica continues. But on request, we do all we can to help you economize by sharing private service. We are now working more closely than ever with our passengers, staying in close contact and making any alternative plans necessary.

RE: Costa Rica
Both private and scheduled service within Costa Rica continues unchanged, including a scheduled trip between San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, and the airport in Liberia, Costa Rica; leaving San Juan del Sur at 6:00 am; and leaving Liberia at 9:15 am. This is a good alternative to flying in or out of the Managua airport, and our private service can accommodate whatever your schedule may require. Please call or email to schedule this service, it is not yet available through our online reservation system.

For current information, or help with customizing our service to ensure your safety and as much convenience as is currently possible, don’t hesitate to call or email the Adelante Express office.
