We had plans to travel to San Juan Del Sur in mid-July, but have reluctantly decided to postpone until the end of the year (we put a deposit down on an Airbnb). We would still like to travel next month, so we are thinking Costa Rica. Flights are rather expensive with almost a month to go, even if our airline waives the change fee, so we were thinking of keeping our roundtrip flight to Managua and booking separate roundtrip tickets from Managua to Costa Rica on Copa. We would book the MGA-SJO flight for the same day, with a few hours in between. My only concern is whether the airport in Managua will remain functional given that the roadblocks are causing food and fuel shortages.
Has anyone thought of a similar option to reroute a trip? How are things at the airport in Managua.
