Absolutely not! June is a great month to plan a trip... just remember that June is prime time for traveling here in Nica... but its fun and good times

@ ADAM
Cab prices from Managau to Rivas are about US 80 to 100 dollars if you get a cab from the airport (special registered safe cabs)... its a 2:30 hour drive. From Rivas to popoyo its about a 40 min drive... mostly on a dirt road. you can get a taxi for about 400 to 500 cordobas (roughly 30 dollars).
There are no buses directly from the airport to Rivas. You have to catch a cab to the bus stops make sure they take to "Huembes market bus top" in spanish "parada de buses en el Mercado Huembes" don't go there at night time or sunset. Take a bus from there to "Rivas" (if you find it) if not you will have to make a connection in "Jinotepe". I have taken the trip from the Huembes market to Jinotepe from Jinotepe to Rivas and from rivas to popoyo.
You will have to pay extra for your surf board and back pack.

I know there is One bus that travels from Managua (Huembes market) to San Juan del Sur directly no stops. They only make one trip a day. Leave San Juan like at 5 am and Leave Managua like at 4 pm. I think its like 100 cords for the trip each way but i am not sure... i always miss that bus.

Hey, you sound like you are very knowledgeable about nicaragua and surf spots around nicaragua. My parents and some family friends just bought some land down there. My friend, his girlfriend and myself are planning a surf trip this year around june/july for about a month. We are planning on camping a good deal on the land we have, but were also wondering some other spots to go, how to get there, how much should we look to spend, good spots to go get supplies and food, and any other accomodations so we wouldnt have to camp in a spot that may not be too close to surf for over a month. If you could get back up with me , any information would be helpful, thanks, Michael
