Managua Airport to SJDS

Hi, a friend and I are arriving in Managua at 10:20am next week, and want to go straight to San Juan Del Sur. What's a cheap but easy way to get there? We were thinking of catching a taxi to Mercado Roberto Huembes and taking a local bus from there -- anyone know how long an express local bus would take to reach SJDS? We have to be in SJDS by 4pm to catch the shuttle to Playa Maderas.

Another option we're looking at is an airport shuttle, but the one we could take doesn't leave until 1pm which is a bit late since we land at 10:20. Anyone know what the cheapest private shuttle is, so we could leave earlier around 11:30 or 12? We are on a budget though, so I'm not sure we can afford a private shuttle between just 2 of us...

Open to any other suggestions as well! Thanks!

local bus will reach in about 2.5 hours. It will cost you around 3-4 dollars per person.

I dont know of any private transport that will come anywhere near that price.

Even if the shuttle leaves at 1, you will still make it to SJDS by 4 to catch your shuttle to maderas. But it doesnt leave much room for error if something happens on the way (traffic accident, flat tire, etc)
